average food, great work mates. the only recreational facilities were a tennis court and the gym.
Dump Truck Operator (Former Employee) – Windarling Mine Site – 14 May 2015
On a typical day I would get up and have a 45 minute commute to work where I would attend a PSI meeting, pre-start the machine I was to operate then commence my duties for the day. On occasion I would help the supervisor with some of their every day tasks. I would then commute back to camp.
My co-workers were amazing and made what could potentially have been a very dull day an enjoyable one and I will miss them dearly.
Well I guess the hardest part is the same for all miners and thats being away from family and friends.
I suppose having some variety in your job adds to it being enjoyable so it doesn't become mundane. I really enjoyed being able to jump on a different machine to break the cycle so to speak.
My work mates were awesome, definately a big plus, and getting my own room.
Long hours, extremely average food.
