Management very poor and payroll dishonest.
Underground Planner, Hydrogeology (Current Employee) –  Diavik Diamond Mine29 January 2015
Very poor management, lack of leadership and managers fail to take responsibility for their actions including the enforcement of standard operating procedures. Management, also failed to provide adequate staff to do the work required and bullied when additional work was not done. This is exemplified by the very high turnover rate.

Payroll was dishonest in not providing documentation that was in accord with pay stubs and committed a fundamental breach of the separation agreement.
Pros
the 2 weeks in two weeks off was attractive
Cons
Long hours and lack of leadership by technical services superintendents and managers.

Lots of different types of jobs
Equipment Operator/ Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Kitimat, BC9 November 2014
typical day in the crane for me was 8-9 hours in the crane doing various jobs but mostly delivering molten aluminium off to casting to be poured. I learned how to be patient cause things dont always go your way. With the help of co-workers made things easier, cant do the job right if you upset your co-workers.
Pros
benefits, car pooling, meeting and teaching new workers about the job
Cons
long hours.

Bonne relation au travail
Inspecteur de l'ingôt (Current Employee) –  Shawinigan, QC19 September 2014
J'ai beaucoup d'autonomie, je suis formé à plusieurs postes de plus avec les changements récents je suis maintenant instructeurs. Le plus difficile c'est le climat de travail dans la situation actuel ou l'avenir de l'entreprise est entre les mains des hauts dirigeants. L'aspect le plus agréable c'est d'être en plein contrôle de mes machines et de produire à pleine capacité.
