Support Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Tyrone, NM – October 29, 2012
with the cost of living so low in new mexico, the pay we recieve at freeport is great. the benefits are good as well - health insurance, vacation, bonus programs, 401k match. the town is very small, which is nice, but it can be a challenge to infiltrate the "brotherhood"; in some instances there are generations of guys working at the mine & that can be hard when you're a new guy.
