Rob Bennet, one of our Field Supervisors, recently celebrated his 10-year service milestone with our company. We are very proud that we have many employees who have built a long-term career at Wallis, having progressed from entry-level roles to management roles within our business. Rob is a great example of someone who joined the company with no experience in the industry and is now leading our field teams.
“I moved from NZ to Australia in March 2012 and Wallis was the first job I got when I arrived. I’ve been here ever since. I began as a new starter and have made my way up to Supervisor within the 10 years. The job was completely new for me and there was a lot to learn, which kept me interested and motivated. When I started, I had a really good driller and crew, which set a very solid base for me to work from and progress. There are also a lot of different characters within the company which keeps things interesting, and I have met some great people along the way that have taught me a lot.
Through the years working for Wallis, I have learnt a lot of new skills ranging from drilling holes, maintenance , people management and working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds outside the industry.
I have made some awesome friendships while working for Wallis. The people I work with are the thing I enjoy most about working here and they are a big part of why I have stayed so long.”
