I worked as an information technology technician for two summers. I woke up at 5am and car pooled to the mine with my father and four other miners. Worked from 6:30am until 3:30pm.
It was a highly social job. I was always in contact with different employees in every department at the mine. I worked in the main office building with managers, engineers, technicians, technologist, geologists, blasters, electrical, surveyors, and I was always learning something new each day. I enjoyed this probably the most because the mining industry is a very complex and interesting field.
It was a rough neck and intellectual work environment that I thourougly enjoyed being a part of for two summers.
