The job is challenging but when you are a hard worker you will succeed

Patient/hard working is key as long you understand wht you need to do on daily basis and are many oppotunities.remember to respect your job and take it seriously

Production is good but bonus is no longer there due to employees injuries and high target set by management. Increasing crews while there is no ground

Was a good company but now everything has changed and it was changing for the better but now it's from better to worse. Firing people left and right .

Pros

No free lunches

Cons

8hrs shift and engineering to work 8hrs to compensate the breakfast we took during week days.

i worked there when most of the things are not organised

when teaching other operators how to reverse with truck with camera. Mining methods Management did not care about their employees. they want you to be early at work but no transport is offered. Biased No one come to where you are working to see the challenges you have on your work. i Enjoyed training

work place

a typical day at work is when there were previous blasting mis-fires and have to go start afresh to re-examine those blasting holes and another worse typical day is when a person has been crushed by a hanging wall or moving machines underground. I learned to always keep my work team safe and to work according to standard at all times more special by wearing the correct PPE. Managing a crew is good to me for the fact that I always work according to standard at all time underground. My core-workers always communicate with me because that is what I also do to them. the hardest part of the job is when the smoke is pumping slowly and the RDO's have to stay a long time drilling. the most enjoyable part of the job is when we celebrate the free facility shifts (no injuries and accidents).

Pros

overtimes

Cons

long hours

Very good

It was a very challenging and good environment which every employee would like to be involved to contribute towards production of the company, we are working together as one team towards one goal. difficulty about this job is to deal with different communities with different needs that the mine has to fulfil as the agreement made before they started mining. environment is very good

Pros

N/a

Cons

undergound and surface explosive bay

typical day at work is when some one is crushed by the hanging wall. I learned to work safety, work as a team, how to survive underground and also learned how to work with dangerous goods. management was not that good because every time when they was a request from the employees it took them time to respond to the problem my co-workers worked as a team and they really managed to work according to the target. the hardest part of the job was when I have to count correctly the explosive left in the explosive bay, the reason why it was hard it because many explosive were little in sizes and once you are disturbed by something you will have to start afresh. the most enjoyable part of the job was when the supervisor will ask a person a very hard question about the explosives in order to keep us alert at all times

Pros

celebration of the 100000 free facality free shifts

Cons

long hours

We work both at surface and underground and the operation is very interesting.

I work with friendly experienced poeple and they give me more opportunity to practise what I have learned at school. The management of the company always want the feed back of what I have done evry month and I do presentations.

Pros

most of the time we do services underground

Cons

the moost important part is to make sure that everything is in operation
