Generally a good Company to be employed by.
Underground Loader Operator (Former Employee) –  Leinster, WA24 May 2014
A typical day at work would start with an update from the previous shift and a safety brief.
During the time I spent with BHP I learnt to operate a number of differing equipment and machinery and my certification was always kept up-to-date.
I enjoyed working as part of a team that worked together for a common goal. Because there was a relatively low turnover of staff, you got to know each other well and became much like a family.
The hardest times were breakdowns that required time for repairs and left me behind target. The worst part of my experience with BHP was the earthquake that created substantial damage to the mine I was working in and the subsequent closure of that operation. Something you cannot prepare yourself for and was quite unexpected.
The best times were always when the equipment was functioning properly and I could work an uninterrupted shift and make good progress.
