A typical day, for me, an underground truck driver was driving in a circle underground in a mine for 11 hours. Some days went smooth others not so smooth. I learned a lot about the mining industry as far as what to look for to maintain a safe work environment for my fellow employees. The management side of it I think could use a little more work. If you needed something (small examples; radio or a mine light), you would get a radio but more than likely it wouldn't work or it would work but the battery wouldn't last that long. Mine lights were the same way and would take forever to receive one. The hardest part of my job was staying awake. It's very easy to get tired so you have to find ways to keep you awake. The most enjoyable part of my job was having others there keeping me safe and making it a fun place to work.
4 on 4 off schedule, something breaksdown truck drivers are the first ones to get sent home.
