I started as an operator and worked my way up; on a drill, ran a dozer, a haul truck, a loader, and eventually I just decided maintenance was the path I wanted to pursue. I got into the maintenance side of things, and now some years later, I’m a field supervisor. I like the challenging aspect of it. I would say that it is a demanding environment where motivated people definitely succeed. It’s a place where you can learn an entire facet of skills, trades and experience. If you’re motivated and hard-working and willing to improve upon yourself and listen to those around you, anything is possible.
