Forklift Operator and Machinist (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 13 July 2018
worked here for 8 years and progressed through many jobs. loud environment and many people working at once with machines that never stop. Management always keep an eye on production and set targets daily.
Labourer/Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 June 2018
Definitely didn't have a good experience here. Got a Repetitive strain from doing the same thing over and over each day with drilling. Supervisors and management treated me poorly. till I quite my job. (there is no standing around with this job)
Warehouse Clerk (Current Employee) – Bracebridge, ON – 25 May 2018
Great place to work ! awesome supervisor - this warehouse was right up my alley - Reach - forklift - computer - Inventory control. Like any business we had some room for improvement and with my experience I was very eager to turn things around as we were a bit overwhelmed . Sadly only 7 months after I started, the corporation decided to close our warehouse in Bracebridge and open a larger one 2 hours north of us . They did offer us all jobs there but it was just too far a move with family and all . I understand the reasoning and will move on .
Export Documentation Clerk (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 March 2018
Very respectful people, nice work environment, they help you to grow in the company and try to keep their employees. I was very happy and proud of being working for them. Unfortunately they started saving too much on employees and closed some locations in Canada, they moved my position to USA where the headquarter is.
Free lunches, help employees to grow in the company
Driller (Former Employee) – Peru, Brazil, Greece and Zambia – 7 February 2018
I worked for Boart Longyear awhile back I think that the company has good wages ,bonus system and a good benefit package. I definitely think that the equipment and tool's are there for the driller's and helper's are good to go. Lot's of part's to repair all that is on the rig.
I found Boart Longyear to be a challenging employer to work for. The benefits were decent but the bonus system was not. There was also quite a bit of favoritism towards employees of French decent. Not a very inclusive work place at all. Big company though with contracts all over.
Diamond Driller Helper (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 12 October 2017
Overall it was a good experience, work was hard and dirty but its easy to push through to complete the task on hand. very mentally challenging and you have to be constantly thinking of things to do to improve efficiency, constantly wearing proper PPE and work safely
Company that is working on improvments and restructuring
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 September 2017
I have worked for this company for ten years, keeping me busy but mostly short term contracts and no schedule. I believe the safety culture for this company has improved over the years and is now in the top of its class. Communication throughout the company has been very good. Only complaint would be no schedule due to short term projects but again, they keep me busy.
Driller (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 4 August 2017
Well you dont know what kind of a day your going to have. Some days go better than others. Hardest part of the job was trying to talk over the sound of the drill. Most enjoyable part was the sound of the drill.
Machinist (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 25 April 2017
Terribly disorganized employees leaving plant at their leisure actually leaving property on company time. Male and female employees disappearing into woman's change rooms and other discreet locations to do what ??? Smokers taking breaks at anytime and all the time. More like a high school than a professional mining company.
Do what you want attitude. Cellphone useage no problem during work.
