Pros: good money, high level of safety
Cons: bad work ethic, no possiblity of further education of training, living away from home
Working a 4 week on and 1 week off roster is to long to be away from love ones and friends. Sure I'm making more money than I ever have in my life but I'm working way less and learning even less.
Growing up on a dairy farm i was taught to work hard and get the job done to the best of my ability and to do it in the most efficient way. Its the total – more... opposite here in mining construction. Everyone is more worried about getting out of work rather than just doing it and making the day go faster.
My co-workers are all great people but they are stuck in the mining construction work ethic of not wanting to work.
The hardest part of my job is getting the right tools for the task and also getting people motivated to get started.
The most enjoyable part of my job is my week off where i actually get my life back for a whole 7 days. – less
