Good place to work
Underground Development Miner (Former Employee) –  Ontario10 January 2018
I liked working here. Good company and decent benefits. Union isn't very good, but as long as you do your job they aren't needed. I would recommend this company for employment.

Core Cutter / Geo-Tech (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC9 September 2016
KGHM is a very friendly and helping company. So many outgoing people that are willing to go above and behind expectation to help others. Also a lot of knowledge to be shared between co-workers in different positions throughout the company.

The union workers are the best, the Managers are all liars.
Staff Trainer/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON20 February 2015
Managers are all for themselves and has NO respect for the hourly unionized workers. They give you 5 jobs to do at once and then fire you for not doing your regular job. The managers are all school kids that have a lot to learn about life and respect. There is no enjoyable part about working on staff for that company.
Pros
Middle staff workers are good to work with.
Cons
Managers are the worst I ever worked with.

Nice place, great people, hard work, and full of challenge
Mechanical Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Santiago (Chile) - Vancouver (Canada)23 September 2014
The offices are first class located in the best place in the city surrounded with beautiful areas and easy access. People very professional and helpful with a high commitment to achieve results. Great experience by working with talented and skilled engineers in a collaborative environment.

It is the place to applied experience and make decisions with a great deal of responsibility. Problems or opportunities of improvement come out every time and every where so employees must be alert and react quickly. This situation presents an invaluable opportunity of learning but at the same time of polishing your skills.

Despite the typical stress and pressure for this kind of jobs, there are supportive managers that lead people to make the best for the company and make the experience of working quite pleasant.
Pros
Opportunity to learn and grow
Cons
Long hours
