Excellent people to work with, productive and safe.
Surface Surveyor (Former Employee) – Kapuskasing, ON – 3 February 2013
I worked as a surface pit surveyor taking topos of the pit and plotting it with a GPS and data collector. I picketed dig limits, blast holes, grade, toes and crests. I learned how to use the software Surpac. Management was well organised and wasn't afraid to speak to anyone. My co-workers were great to work with and wish that I was still working with them. The hardest part of the job was that I lived 45 minutes away from Kapuskasing plus a 1 hour bus ride away to the mine. I worked 12 hours days but it really came up to about 15 hours by the time I would get back home. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that Agrium worked very hard on team building and I got to meet new people that worked for the mine.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Vanscoy, SK – 9 January 2018
Secure and protect the property. I worked as a security officer. We ensured that it was safe for workers on a daily basis. I learned that potash mines are very productive and are a very important part of the food chain. I worker with all types of trades workers. The hardest part of this job was informing safety personnel that a certain worker was under the influence of alcohol and some workers were fired on the spot. The most enjoyable part of this job was commuting and being a big part of a company.
