Core Cutter / Geo-Tech (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 9 September 2016
KGHM is a very friendly and helping company. So many outgoing people that are willing to go above and behind expectation to help others. Also a lot of knowledge to be shared between co-workers in different positions throughout the company.
The union workers are the best, the Managers are all liars.
Staff Trainer/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 20 February 2015
Managers are all for themselves and has NO respect for the hourly unionized workers. They give you 5 jobs to do at once and then fire you for not doing your regular job. The managers are all school kids that have a lot to learn about life and respect. There is no enjoyable part about working on staff for that company.
Nice place, great people, hard work, and full of challenge

The offices are first class located in the best place in the city surrounded with beautiful areas and easy access. People very professional and helpful with a high commitment to achieve results. Great experience by working with talented and skilled engineers in a collaborative environment.
