Safety Coordinator and Health Advisor in Lethbridge, AB

Solid work
The crew and management at Foraco are great to work with. They have their issues but for the most part they strive to have a good working environment.

Dont do it.
You'll be far away from family and friends for a minimum 28 days, sometimes without cell service. They also don't pay travel so if it takes you an hour to get to the drill you'll be leaving at 6 a.m and back at 8 p.m and only paid 13 hours while it should be 14s. The company steals a hour for some reason which is odd because you don't get any coffee or lunch break. Everything is always a rush and they think the year is 1867 where you can't stop for a break and have to keep busy every minute of the day. The workplace standards are ridiculous you'll sign a tailgate at 6:59 and be working at 7. You'll be making 3500 every 2 weeks helping if your lucky. Sure this sounds like good money but keep in mind your working long hours everyday for a month straight with no days off.
Drilling Assistant in Greater Sudbury, ON

hard work but had good time working there
Working 14 shifts and being off for 7 is a tough schedule but the pay check was worth it since you put in a lot of overtime. Not to mention that the schedule is all days or all nights. Two weeks of night shifts makes it long.

The work of a surface driller
A typical day at work would include an inspection of the drill and surroundings at the beginning of the shift.I then look in the daily log book about what kind of production was preformed from the following shift. I proceeded with my usual work day. I have learned many things from setting up a drill rig to putting together a core barrel and a tube assembly. I have experienced many situations that were good and bad in my 7 years on the drills. I have had many different co-workers and i have been pleased with all of them because they are hard workers and that helps with work ethics and communication. The hardest part of my job was to leave my family behind when i had to work out of town. I know that i have to do what is best for my family as well as myself. I have worked in Geraldton, Red Lake, Gowganda as well as local areas. The most enjoyable part of my job is being outdoors, working with great people and continuing to grow and learn everyday that i am working.
