An excellent team to work with. I worked under contract in the projects group and even though I got cut due to cutbacks I felt that I was treated somewhat fairly.
The Job comes with a lot of sacrifices in other areas of your life, but is an opportunity to gain experience and make a high income. If you are a person who enjoys small town and outdoor activities the sacrifices will not be felt as strongly.
Hudbay is a medium sized company that started out as Hudsons Bay Mining and Smelting. The culture has changed from being paternalistic to that of many of the bottom line is all that counts mentality. They have fired/retired many experienced people and replaced them with cheaper to hire inexperienced people. Canadian resources are dwindling from this decision.

I work steady days with weekends off, salary and benefits are very good. The equipment we have here is some of the best there is to offer. I enjoy creating new things from just thinking about them. It’s a very respectable work environment with a good management team.
Steady days weekends off
Sometimes we have to travel to other work sites
A typical work started at 6:30 AM in the morning meeting room. Then after the supervisor gave his safety briefing he told us where he needed us and told us to have a good, safe, productive workday. The hardest part of the job was honestly working in the summer heat as it got really hot at times. When the days where +30 degrees Celsius, the general Forman would get Gatorade for everyone. So all in all it was a awesome place to work.
Dealing with the hot summer sun.
Good mine with a work culture of production, responsibility and cooperation. Colleagues and seniors are helpful and a great place to learn while earning.
Reasonable with excellent benefits, amicable work culture
advancements do not come so frequently
I've worked with hudbay for the last ten years. I've had great training, lots of opportunity for advancement. A top notch mine rescue training program. Over all a greAt place to work
If they like you, you could get away with almost anything. When they went after someone it was no hope. The management was chaotic. No communication between crews. Often cleaning up others messes and over worked. I learned a lot at Hudbay and I appreciate it. gave me skills in the mining industry with confined space and crane training. And dealing with heavy equipment. Being over worked or not giving the proper tools or safety procedures in place when given a task. I enjoyed the people the most; my co-workers. Trying to keep it lighthearted in stressful or aggravating situations.
Over worked and crude management.
the small community is very welcoming and friendly, with mostly everyone working for the company. the remote community is beautiful and great for the outdoorsy types. the remoteness also has the con that it is a 7 hr drive from a major city.
Good work experience and development
Remote location - 7 hrs from major city
Was a good place to work before the 2015 strike, after the strike they treated the strikers like garbage. Management is only there to protect staff and not the hourly. Was personally forced to quit this brutal company! My suggestions don't bother!
