Was a pretty poor experience working with this company, Managment and HR need to wake up and treat staff better. High turnover of staff means staff who have been on site longer need to pick up the slack and consistently train new people

The good things

Other offsiders are great workers and hard working.

The challenges

Very high turn over of staff, all the extra hours you have to work and not get paid for, exploration work was good but travel times are long and not included in 12hr shift

It's a good company if you want to get experience in the industry​, but don't set your standard to high as it will be disapointing.

The good things

The people on the ground are willing to help and very knowledgeable. Good conditions when on site.
