Could be a great company but a lack of leadership and direction makes it difficult to feel confident in your job security. They offer limited to no training, and it is difficult to want to advance as middle receives no support from upper management. However the schedule is excellent and the pay and bonus are very good.
excellent schedule, good salary
lack of comunication and strained relations between staff and hourly
Miner/Supervisor/safety training Superviosr (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 13 November 2017
Very challenging job. As a supervisor you had to be a good planner and organizer. As a safety and training supervisor responsible for multiple sites and working with different managers was demanding and also rewarding. Good hours and salary.
Senior Planner& Estimator (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 24 October 2017
Being the most experienced planner on site I was asked for my professional opinion almost every morning and asked to help younger planner to achieve objectives. I learned that upper management did not always appreciate problems and issues of the project and made uninformed decisions. The hardest part of my job was trying to get mgmt to receive information as layed out in schedules and plans. the most enjoyable part as time went on the plan was self fullfilling.
Only good when nickel is at 10$ Plus...Unpredictable market. Company is good to work for, lots of chances to go up the organization if your a go getter. Company does like to carry lazy employees. Probably the issue with all big companies.
Processing Plant Technician (Former Employee) – Long Harbour, NL – 20 June 2017
They oversell and under deliver. The extensive interview process will make you believe the job is much more desirable than what it actually is. They are very vague about what the PPT position entails and do not give you much information until you are actually thrown into your area.
Processing plant technician (Current Employee) – Long Harbour, NL – 17 February 2017
Good Job. Questionable management decisions. Makes claims that business decisions are transparent, however that is far from true. Claim that they nurture decisions to be made by techs, but disregard advice given by technicians actually working in the field.
