the employies were great to work with
retired miner (Former Employee) –  Copper Cliff, ON17 January 2014
meet with crew at start of shift and discuss the days work. go over safety for previous day and present days work. See what other work was being done in other parts of the mine. The hardest part of the job was when equipment was broken and you had to wait for it to be repaired and the most enjoyable part was that you did the job safely and efficiently

A glimps into First Line Supervisory work at Vale
Front Line Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON7 April 2018
Typical Day involves a morning meeting 6:45am with all supervisors and upper management involving the previous days production, safety talk, injury review, IM review, discuss work being performed that day, discuss high priority work required, 7:00am line up the crew with daily safety information followed by specific crew assignments relating to what their task is for that particular day .Field visits throughout the shift to ensure proper procedure's and safety aspects are being followed. Conversations with crew members on the Floor in regards to any concerns or issues they may have on that particular day, input payroll, documentation of daily activities, concerns or issues, discussion with DCS operator and Metallurgical Eng. to produce the highest quality of feed, adjust mill performance and Assays to achieve goals set by upper Eng. Things learned, adjust to worker behaviors and performance, employees are individual in comparison to others, getting to know them in order to be able to help them. Hardest part is not to mix friendship with work ethics. Most enjoyable, everyday is different, no two are the same.
