Casual program is a joke
Haul Truck Operator/Pit Utility (Former Employee) –  Elkford, BC14 November 2016
Not a great atmosphere... 4 on 4 off sounds better than it is , especially if you live out of town. First day off your bagged.. last day off your getting everything ready to go back to work, so ya only get 2 good days off.
Can keep you Casual for years, .. so ya cant get benefits or holidays. , ya think you have a career but you just never know when its gonna start.. not like a normal place where 3 months probation period.
Trucks can be very dangerous in muddy conditions.. someone is gonna get killed again up there.. they only preach safety when something bad happens
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Could write a book on all the Cons.

Teck Coal
Coop Student (Former Employee) –  Sparwood, BC21 October 2016
Teck Coal is an amazing company, I spend a year of my coop internship there and the people are simply the best.

Located near one of the best ski hills in Canada, Fernie. Teck Coal owns several large mine sites and depending which site you work for, there are just spectacular views every day.

Awesome Culture, which promotes safey in every aspect of work, work life balance and earned days off (EDOs).
Pros
EDOs
Cons
Must relocate

Great operations people. Difficult to advance without higher education.
Geological Technician (Former Employee) –  Sparwood, BC17 October 2016
Teck Coal is an efficient and well run operation. The people on the ground, working in the pits are some of the best men and women I have worked with. People who overstep their authority are dealt with quickly. New approaches and ideas are sometimes not given a chance to succeed.
Pros
Benefits package is very good.
Cons
The corporate culture can be difficult to adjust to.

Poorly managed unhealthy work place
Power Engineer (Former Employee) –  Trail, BC8 August 2016
Teck is operating under the management of seniority figures not necessarily qualification. The effluents produced plant wide are incredibly hazardous to employee health and the surrounding human and animal environments. The years in operation have shown little progress towards making significant improvements to bring the site wide technology and health safety standards up to 21st century. Production trumps all.
Pros
Location.
Cons

Poor morale. Depressing environment.
Mine ops (Former Employee) –  Sparwood22 August 2015
Extremely poor morale.

Pay is descent: 80-100,000 to start. Good benefits after 1 year. Stay as casual employee until they decide to give you full time. As casual you can be laid off at any time, and no benefits.

Foreman are inexperienced, lazy, and entitled.

Favouritism is a major problem.

You won't get anywhere unless your drinking buddies with the foreman.

Your rarely thanked for you're work, and the minute you make a small mistake you're treated like a criminal.

Most foreman don't set a good example of work ethic and take advantage of there positions.

No camp

If you don't live in Elkford or Starwood expect to pay $750 for mediocre 1 bed apartment.

No travel pay

14 hr days(paid for 12) 4 on 4 off, 2 night shifts.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Too many to list.

not a bad place to work just not for everyone
Haul Truck Operator (Current Employee) –  Sparwood, BC3 June 2015
they can keep you as a temp for as long as they want which means no benefits and only temp wage which seems like a scam to me.

also no matter how much experience you have you start on haul truck which again isn't bad but to progress you have to bid on jobs and people with more seniority will get preference over you so your usually stuck to haul truck for along time
Pros
good retirerment package
Cons
long temp period

Great Business Experience
Corporate Accounting Clerk (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 May 2015
I was promoted from an administrative role into my position as a Corporate Accounting Clerk. This role provided me with a great opportunity to develop my business skills, and I was encouraged to further my education by taking courses in accounting and Microsoft applications. My coworkers were helpful and supportive, however there was often a scarcity of support during busy times.
