Fast paced, Receptive to Change
Operations Technician - Commissioning Team (Current Employee) –  Long Harbour, NL12 August 2013
Plant is in the comissioning stage, therefore going through though changes with scope of work, which is dependant on construction completion.

A typical day will inclue reviewing and updating procedures, walking flow paths and reading and modifying P&ID's

Managment is dealing with changing deadlines pertaining to construction completion.

Good Crew Selected for the first hire of techs, based on attitude and apptitude test.

The potential for advancment and salary increase is the most discouraging with this company, and not being fully utilized to my potential.

The most enjoyable part is learning what it takes to commission a plant and the attention to detail that it requires.
Potentially Equal time on and off when plant is operational
Poor Salary Structure

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.
