Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Normally a 11 hrs working Day for maintenance personal in shutdowns & breakdowns it longs 14 to 15hrs also maintenance related works, control systems are great learnings Workplace culture is very hectic and you always work under pressure Hardest part of job is you can get call for breakdown and shutdowns at any time from midnights, early mornings or on your leaves or festivals Most enjoyable part of job is the new challenges every breakdown gives you and you learn new lesson every time.


Accomodation is good


Long Working days 11-14 hrs a day
