A challenging position
Senior Shovel and drill maintenance supervisor (Former Employee) –  Oyu Tolgoi mine Mongolia15 October 2014
Language barrier was very hard to work with. Being a newer industry to the country, the population was unaccustomed to the safety culture that was expected of everyone.

Bonne relation au travail
Inspecteur de l'ingôt (Current Employee) –  Shawinigan, QC19 September 2014
J'ai beaucoup d'autonomie, je suis formé à plusieurs postes de plus avec les changements récents je suis maintenant instructeurs. Le plus difficile c'est le climat de travail dans la situation actuel ou l'avenir de l'entreprise est entre les mains des hauts dirigeants. L'aspect le plus agréable c'est d'être en plein contrôle de mes machines et de produire à pleine capacité.

Excellent company to work for. Very interesting and challenging work.
Senior Designer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC27 January 2014
Typical day starts by checking and reviewing the work with the project manager. At 11 am there is a daily meeting with the project manager, the design team and upper management. In that meeting you outline your progress and highlight any problems you have or see the potential of developing. After the lunch break you return to your work station and continue with your design activities as per instructions from management and the agreed plan of action.
Pros
Senior management is very involved in the design process providing instant support when needed.
Cons
Unfortunately due to the poor economy they can't offer a permanent position.
