What Graduates Say About Them
  • The opportunity to travel to different mining sites around Australia.
  • The team I work with are awesome and the work I do is challenging.
  • Diverse rotations across the operations of a world leading manufacturer and services provider.
  • It's very flexible and there are many benefits. There is a wide range of work so it never gets repetitive or boring.
  • Opportunity to develop and learn from a variety of engineers and sites.
  • Dealing with internal employees that do not understand the environment our customers are operating in.
  • Workplace involves many hazards, chemical and otherwise. Pay is not as high as in other engineering sectors (e.g. mining or oil and gas).
  • It's quite hard to come into a specialist company as a new graduate with very limited knowledge or experience. You have to work extremely hard to be of any help in the first few years. It can be quite stressful.
  • Uncertainty about future employment (although this is an industry wide problem)
  • Some managers are great mentors and provide excellent guidance, feedback and invest time developing you and your skills. Whereas some others think graduates are cheap labour and don't care too much about your development. Being thrown in the deep end with little support and guidance can be quite over whelming especially when everyone is too busy to step in and help you out a little or provide that guidance you need being new.
