glad to be out
Blokes on the ground are smashing, most managers don't have a clue. treat people like dirt. Difference in pay grades between older guys and younger guys creates a lot of tension as the younger ones are expected to do more

Wouldn't Recommend
Great place to work if you live with parents or have no children. Bullying atmosphere acceped as the norm by management, pressured to take holiday when it suits them. denied holiday when you need the time off as "your not the only person who wants that day off" When you can see the diary is empty. (higher management are told by lower management that everything is running fine in our department) when they know the issues and do what they can to hide it.

Interesting Workplace
Imerys is all about the people. The company is going through large changes right now but the people who work for Imerys are supportive and positive. I learnt alot about engineering and as their system is unique I learnt alot about mining

Challenging
This job requires a to have a broad knowledge of geology and mining. It is better to have a versatile skill set and a good ability to adapt and find solutions rather than a very specialised skill set.

Brilliant company to work for. shame it was only temporary. Would of enjoyed the stability of the job to become permanent but no one was sure it would be. So had to make the decision to leave for more job stability.

Good if you're French
Interesting and enjoyable job in a company that has a good culture. The environment is generally relaxed and positive, leading to good productivity. Although large amounts of international travel is common. However, a huge downside is that advancement is heavily weighted towards French nationals - senior management is almost exclusively French, leading to a clear glass ceiling. One that appears to be lowering by the year.

Perfect
Electrical and engineering in laying electrical cables and preparing them to be fitted for switchgear. Tried to start up a diesel powered generator but found out that it had run out of diesel. Observed an employee wiring up a control panel for a jet engine.

work experience

This period was spent being introduced to working in a major employer involved in mining operations in Cornwall. The opportunity to work here gave me experience of working in both an office environment, and in heavy industry.
