Quotes from recent Interns in response to the question "what are the positives of the job and employer?"

Get to work in a wide range of areas. Able to see equipment very close up.  Learn more underground than I have at university. Very hands on experience. 

They train you both sides of an engineering work (practical and design basis). Coach you all the time and willing to help with anything

Learnt about different aspects and I was able to apply my knowledge and skills
