-Great place to learn how to operate.
Trainers were very experienced operators who moved into management, informational.
-Night Shift and dayshift rotation were much to close apart, sometimes tired was the hardest part.
-Got along with all the co workers, knew some of them as well from before, if you ask questions they would tell exactly what to do.
-Wondered why we had to move stockpiles a few times (engineer)
*I actually started building a dam with 2 engineers, a fellow operator and myself. Used pumps and did compaction tests with him, sprayed water when needed for about a month, and started my operating career on a packer.*
Paid lunches, good people, made lots of friends i still talk to, learned lots
too close of day shift night shift rotation.
