Facilities Clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: good people
Cons: bad people management
Barrick Gold is a good employer but they lack many of the standard processes that larger businesses have. They are still very much a the company that Peter Munk founded 27 yrs ago and still function as a small start up in many respects.

The details of Barrick Gold Inc
Open Pit Maintenance (Former Employee), Carlin, NVJuly 4, 2014
Pros: good health benefits and 401k benefits
Cons: difficult to gain a technician level upgrade. multiple "hoops" to jump through to get an upgrade
While at Barrick there was ample opportunity to learn various heavy equipment details. Management could be more involved in the culture of safety that they advertise. While at Barrick Goldstrike, I learned the details of many heavy equipment manufacturers including but not limited to Caterpillar, Komatsu, Taylor, Gehl, Bobcat, etc. The rotating shifts – more... were a little difficult at first to get used to but after a while it came as second nature like breathing or walking. The medical benefits and 401k benefits were the best that I have ever seen. Yearly raises regardless of technician level. – less

Great Coworkers,
Crane Operator (Former Employee), Bald Mountain MineApril 29, 2014
Pros: great benefits, coworkers
Cons: micromanage employees who know there job better than the supervisor, management also lied about cyanide spills to keep from losing new permits on heap leach pads
It was a great job in the beginning. Had many problems with management throwing there employees under the bus when things happened on site. Had a huge environmental spill at north process plant which consisted of about 15 thousand gallons of cyanide over flowing the containment berm for about 7 hrs. I reported the spill after several other people in – more... the area noticed it for at least an hour and did nothing to stop this incident. The person in charge of reportables decided to file a 200 gallon report of the incident. I cannot work for a company who has management lie about how the company was such a great steward of the environment. This not the first time mining companies pollute the environment. It will continue as long as people choose money over doing right thing. I notified the state EPA, but nothing happened to company. – less

Great company to work for, exciting underground environment
Mine Geologist (Former Employee), Granny Smith and DarlotMarch 3, 2014
Pros: great people to work with overall, fifo
Cons: bullies, no place to move up at that site
The first job was core logging/prepping. Once that's done, any structural interpretations, QAQC data, and/or reconcilliation work is done. Other jobs include underground mapping and sampling, wire framing, and block modelling. My management came from the senior geologist. Most of my co workers had less years experience than me, but are generally willing – more... to work outside the scope of their titles. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the one or two bullies in the immediate work space. The most enjoyable part of the job is doing structural interpretations in areas that not many people have previously looked at or analysed and used these interpretations for target generation – less

Intern (Former Employee), ElkoFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: kept me busy
Cons: not much guidance
I performed different mining scenarios to check the most feasible way to mine. Designed a new landfill for the sight. This was the most challenging because I had to teach myself how to design in Vulcan software. This was a huge project. This was a project that would normally be done by a full time Engineer.
