A great place to work if you enjoy working long hours and make a good wage
Diamond Driller Helper/ 5th Man (Current Employee) – NU – 19 October 2012
A typical day at work consist of a 12 hour day, a physically damanding day where your goal is to keep the drill running and drilling out as much core as possible with out damaging equipment. I have learned how to set up and what you have to do to get drilling. the management where great to work for and understanding. My co-workers changed all the time but they were good people from all over Canada. The hardest part of the job was being away from home for 3 to 6 weeks at a time. the most enjoyable part was the money and seeing different parts of Canada I would not of seen before.
money, hours, seeing different parts of canada, and learning new things
overall the best thing about working for the company was the guys i worked with .Had 2 really good shift bosses but upper management and HR department needed alot of work.All though we are advancing with new equipment and ideas management was still stuck in the 50's using fear tactics and yelling like we were children. The guys were great and moral was alright but even after seven years felt like just a number.The wage that they paid was the same as it was in 1980.
Worked with some great guys. Job was challenging.
Humain resource department was a joke they were not there to help employees only management.
