I wouldn't if I were you
Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee), Grande Cache, ABMarch 17, 2014
Pros: trades retention bonus is ok.
Cons: slowly taking away loa, on and off layoffs for this past year, very disorganized, poorly managed, no real mine plan
Used to be a good place to start a career in mining and then move on to a better company. But they layed off all the training staff and a bunch of safety guys too. The turn over rate was 1500 employees in the 4 years I worked there. I think that pretty much says if all.

Great Place to Work
Labour Relations Advisor (Current Employee), Grande Cache, ABFebruary 13, 2014
Grande Cache Coal has allowed me to be stable here in Grande Cache. I worked for this company for almost 6 years. I started off as a new miner, then worked my way up to supervisor in 2 years. I was then offered a position in the HR department due to my knowledge in the UG department.

Management can be hard to work with.
