Very good pay, great company, but depends on the project.Great pay, had 12 jour shifts and overtime after the first 8 hours in a day. Really appreciate that they did not try to scam their workers, (compared to some companies that start you middle of the week and don't pay overtime till after 70-80 hours of back-to-back work days). Not only were they fair with the overtime, but they also paid us double time after 50 hours in the work week.It was such a treat to work for a company that actually values their workers. I felt the office management wasn't the most organized at times -we got conflicting directions when we started our job. However, this wasn't really a problem because once they put us with a crew, most of the management (payroll, organizing ect) was handled by the foremen/ superintendant (onsite), and they were well-organized so we had no problems. The morale was very good at the sites that I worked at. Everyone wanted to be there and work hard. Not because of pressure from foremen, but because they felt actually valued as workers and so they wanted to work. It also helped that most people were local so almost everyone knew everybody.Every site seems to have a different culture, I can't speak for all of them, but I really enjoyed my job where I worked.The only downside I experienced was that one of the underground mine jobs day shift started at 4am (cage time) so had to be there ~3:30-3:45am. Very early start unless you're a morning person. But that was outside of Noble's control as the mine company spread out the start times cause they didn't want 30 workers riding the cage at once durring covid. So maybe that will change once we finally get over the pandemic?
Underground Miner in Esterhazy, SK
Moral was always low. Bad pay. Guys were never getting paid enough for the stress that the body takes underground. Poor management. No living allowance or a fuel subsidy for guys driving an hour or more.
Poor management If you’re working at K3 the 7/7 shift does not include any overtime until after 80 hours. The management on surface is terrible. The guys underground only do what the can. The turnover rate is ridiculous depending what crew you’re placed on there is a good chance you’ll hate this job. That being said the turnover rate doesn’t just include workers, supervisors, safety, and gf’s are all quitting to leave for more money, better opportunities noble is slowly falling to the way side. Mosaic is definitely starting to see the holes in nobles competency and becoming unhappy. I would y be surprised to see this company fold the n the next year or so.

Productive, fun place to work . Good crew Good company to work for. They care about there employees. The salary and benefits are fair. The supervisors and management are easy to talk to and will answer any questions you have or help you out the best they can.

Did the 14 hour training/test, took time off to do orientation and drug test, bought the metguard work boots because my other new pair didn't fit the bill.
