I work on the mines and I'm very clean The site I'm at is fine, rooms are good, great sporting facilities, food isn't amazing but can't really complain! Try offshore oil rigs in the north sea, now that's rough! Mines in Australia= good!

I'm with Trisha...and the rest. Very offended by daisyVB's comments. DH doesnt work on the mines.. used to but now he's an international offshore oil and gas driller and he is obsessive about personal hygiene. How rude for you to generalise like that. Its very rare in this day and age for miners to be the stereo typical roughneck who fights every other day and never washes his beard!
OP, its really quite easy. DH is due home tomorrow and I just over heard ds in his bed doing the count down and a big DADDA HOME!!! at the end. SO CUTE even if he should have been having his nap! Ds has been dealing with this since he was a baby so he's used to it I guess, he gets 3.5 weeks with Dadda!!!! Lots of quality time, much more than he would get if dh did a normal day job. You will be fine, it gets a bit lonely but its also sorta nice to have the bed to yourself for a few weeks, a huge cut down on washing and cleaning.... you can watch whatever YOU wanna watch on TV. THe money is awesome and its a great way to get ahead. Our plan is for dh to retire at 40 and us to have enough properties under our belt to live on the rent and he may do 1 hitch a year which will bring in play money. Dont stress RELAX!!! and take each day as it comes and thin of all that yummy MONEY!! Kids are really adaptable too you know.

I'm jumping on the offended bandwagon too... Dh has worked in the mines for the last 7 years, both at home and drive in drive out from Kalgoorlie. He now works at home 5am till sometimes 10pm at night... He has the best hygiene has a shower as soon as he gets home and the camp he lived in was amazing the rooms were brand new and had everything they needed food was great.
We have discussed him doing FIFO when we move to Perth in the next 2 years he is a bit anxious but knows that the time he will spend at home will be quality time, instead of at the moment him coming home grumpy and tired.

As a parts interpreter maybe look into something along the lines of mechanical planner. Does he have any experience with MS Project, Pronto, SAP or any other type of EMS??? I don't really know what a part interpreter entails sorry!?

It's who you know a lot of times as well as qualifications.
If you want residential, most places like you to be living in the town before they will consider you and it can be hard to get into FIFO because they like to know you can handle shift work and been away from home. It really is about contacts a lot of the time though. Perhaps try and get something when they're doing a shut, and then he'll have some contacts to help get your foot in the door.

He works for iveco Australia. He sources parts for the mechanics and runs the service area of the workshop. Is there anything like that in the mines?
