Worked at Karratha civil as a operator (RII TICKETED).Found that management was not interested in operators having tickets or had a VOC for machine. They wanted bums on seats to get job done. Supervision left a lot to be desireda as there was a purple circle and it stuck out. The job was what you made it to be not what it should have been from DOT ONE
Pros
None
Cons
Some of fellow workers good to work with others inexperienced

Downers are Australia's largest electrical contractor. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Work is generally 10/12 hour days, 25 days on 10 days off. Great opportunity maintaining Australia's largest LNG plant. 30 plus years old plant so every day posed a challenge. Made many great friends. The long days and roster's were an obvious challenge, fatigue management was key. Made great friends and learned every day.
Pros
Constantly trained and educated.
Cons
Long work cycle.
