This company likes to dump its senior workers for those they can get cheaper!
Sr. Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – USA – 26 December 2012
Worked for this company as a top rated Executive Assistant for approximately 20 years. I had watched this company through the years treat their employees as they got older shabbily. If you are over 45 and especially a woman watch your back they will find a way to get rid of you. Experience means nothing and neither does your knowledge. Myself and two other women in my area were laid off for no apparent reason and when you asked why they could not say it was due to any type of job performance. We had simply become expendable due to our expertise and our salaries. Want experience in your field then work there after you get what you need from them and then move on to a better company.
long hours, no gratitude for job well done, physically demanding, low morale!
Engineer (Current Employee) – Canada – 25 June 2017
Working at a large operation, there are several technical challenges which makes the work very interesting. Being part of a large organization, you have numerous resources available in which you can tap into when you come across problems that the operation has not previously experienced.
Operations - Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Yellowknife, NT – 10 June 2017
Management and operations were very helpful and accommodating for QC testing. The only limitation was what you would be willing to do, or learn, on site. Overall the people on site, at all levels, were a lot of fun to work with.
Support Staff (Former Employee) – Canada – 31 May 2017
Higly intellectual staff but treat people as mechanical object. Very cost and production driven company, which find it difficult engage people. They are loosing touch to the very heart of the business - their people. Work life balance is hard to achieve. It's a very stressful work environment.
Highly intellectual management and technical team
Treat people as mechanical object.It's a very stressful work environment.
Je suis retraité. J'ai vécu dans une entreprise où l'on reconnaissait la personne avec toute sa valeur. Pour ce qui est de RioTinto, je ne puis donner un avis sauf car j'y ai travaillé pour une très courte durée à titre de consultant.
Coordonnatrice aux comptes de dépenses (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 3 March 2017
Malgré la surcharge de travail, l'environnement de travail était impeccable. Le superviseur était compréhensible et aidant. Lorsqu'il y avait beaucoup de pression, il avait toujours les bons mots pour nous encourager. Les collègues étaient toujours présent pour aider dans diverses tâches.
Excellent company to work, however, in Quebec the meddle to low management is extremely racist and protective against non-Quebec born employees. Even highly qualified professionals born outside of Quebec will have very low chances to grow in the company and will have difficulties to be hired and maintained in their positions.
