Lovell Cove Camp/ Road Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lovell Cove. out of Prince George. B.C. – 30 October 2015
All of the activities were performed by contractors . My job was to monitor and direct activities of the contractors. There was some hands on interaction with the camp maintenance crews as far as Gen set and Sewage management activities. Allocating rail car deliveries to the various mills was a major function of the job.
I enjoyed the work as there was very good people in place. Although I performed my work very well and under budget, my supervisor did not like me so I was let go. I do not have animosity , but was disappointed.
live in a remote location and work with great contractors
Experienced a unique and difficult to please manager
