Driver (Former Employee) – Labrador City, NL – 16 June 2013
Worked with company transporting workers around job site. To and from airport. Worked with great management team and safety was a priority at all times.Hardest part of job was winter conditions on gravel roads with full load of workers and slippery conditions with many hills and turns. Keep yourself alert as to conditions of the roads and block out noises from workers being transported.Enjoyable past was getting workers back to camp safely and taking them to airport for their turn-a-rounds for days off.
Operator (Current Employee) – Kitimat, BC – 2 July 2017
As a shift worker it's always diffult to have proper rest. The work environment is challenging but it is then multiplied by the poor management in place. They don't respect any of the front line workers. They don't honour collective agreements and feel like they can do whatever they want without consequence. They disregard health and safety in favour of production and put workers at risk. Fortunately, it is a Unionized work place and we enjoy great wages and benefits. If they keep treating their workers poorly they won't have any left to do the job.
Wages, benefits and Unionized
Disrespect towards workers, bad management, profits over people
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.

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.
