A growing company
Equpiment operator (Current Employee) –  Tumbler Ridge17 January 2019
I have been with Conuma since the start, and first hand seen them grow into the company they are today. Most of it is good, some of it is not. I genuinely believe the upper management who started all of this want what is best for the company and its employees. They have been true to their word, and have continued to show honesty and integrity. The money is good, along with the benifits and bonuses. Sadly, a lot of the middle management (managers, gf’s, etc...) are the same ones from the western and Walter days. Worse yet is the hr department... one would think that to work in hr you would have to care about people, or at least show traits of humanity, apparently not. If there is one thing in common across the whole pit at the wolverine, it’s the hatred for HR. They play favourites, hire friends and family, and good luck if you have them the stink eye in the past. Someone should buy them a dictionary so they can learn what confidential means. But overall, if you can keep away from them, this really Is a great place to work and I’m happy to work for CONUMA.
Pros
Money, bonus, team
Cons
Human Resources, poor equip maintenance.

Dozer
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Tumbler Ridge, BC26 December 2018
There is no job security with this company. If you are buddies with managers and certain gf and blow stuff up your nose you are a sure in for favoriting. They follow no safety rules. Make you drive equipment in very hot and cold conditions. And if u refuse then you go back to the bottom of the pile to climb again.
Upper management is worse. Feed you a long story about how safe the company is and how they are number is safety. They are number one cause they report nothing. I can’t wait til I find a new job and leave. Wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy to work there. If you like blowing stuff up your nose then you will love the management team.

Waste of Time
Operator (Former Employee) –  Chetwynd, BC10 December 2018
After moving my life to northeast BC and being fed a line of lies, I regret doing it for a job with Conuma Coal. The orientation feeds a person with hope and makes it seem like a great place to work. The mines are far from town, unpaid commute and 15 hours + by the time a guy gets home, that's no good. Bonuses are given out unfairly and the absentee program means you better work through the flu or else you lose bonus or potentially your job. The equipment is poorly maintained, production comes before repair and the maintenance budget is poor. Equipment is in bad shape. I have worked on all 4 rotations and every shift has bad moral and ignorant supervisors. There is a lot of disrespect and drama and not what I want to support and work hard for. I currently am looking for a new job and deeply regret believing Conuma Coal's mission statement.

Terrible place
Shovel Operator (Current Employee) –  Tumbler Ridge, BC24 August 2018
If you just want a pay check and overtime. This is the place for you. Cheap living in a town (Tumbler) that has only enough to supply you with basic needs. Everyone else goes to Dawson or GP. The mine is ridiculous. Zero safety. Poor quality equipment. Everything is just getting done to make the management money. It’s definitly a boom till bust company. The blasts are absolute garbage.
Pros
Bonus and overtime if you get it.
Cons
Everything else.

Got a long way to go to be a world class mine
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Tumbler Ridge, BC5 July 2018
Work life balance is poor, too much time riding on the bus to and from work for no travel pay.

Salary is on the low side when compared to other mines, no competition to challenge lower wages.

Job security is low, high turn over in employees, low morale.

It's common for people to up and quit...with no notice.

Management is lower caliber, when compared to other Mines.

Safety is not number one and it is not a culture.
Pros
A paycheck
Cons
3 hours on bus travelling for free

Unsafe, mismanaged and unprofessional
Manager (Current Employee) –  Tumbler Ridge, BC2 May 2018
Management is completely incompetent,. Workers safety is never a priority and the Loss Prevention department is greatly under qualified; especially in a safety challenged work environment. Company policy is interpreted / enforced differently for some employees. Zero confidentiality and professionalism within the Human Resource Department. Low employee morale.
Pros
Monthly Bonus
Cons
Too many to list

Good company
EXCAVATOR OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Tumbler Ridge, BC15 February 2018
A good company to work for. They are still a young company and have some growing pains, but all in all a good company to work for. Pay is pretty good, benefits are also good. They treat you like a partner not just a number.
