Development Miner in Lac des Iles, ON
Camp is nice but hard to keep cleaning and cooking staff, which reflects on the condition and cleanliness
Food is adequate at best.
There is a high turn over here which makes the consistency of leadership and planned work hard to accomplish cost effectively
Equipment is old which makes work very trying for the maintenance workers.

Worst place to work
The direction is awful. They don't care about the guys and the work environment is bad even toxic. The general foreman is a megalomaniac liar and only think about himself, you can't trust him. The only way to get up the ladder there is to stab everyone else in the back. Always asking more to the guys but never giving anything in return. But I like the camp.

Terrible place to work
Equipment is falling apart, management does what they want and union doesn’t do anything to help. Wages are just barely acceptable for work conditions

Toxic work environment.
Turn over rate for Trades is about 20%. Management is horrible and HR are a bunch of c****. If you are happy at this job they will do everything they can to change that. Horrible food and camps.
Toxic Workplace. Terrible Management. High Turnover
This company has a 20-30% annual employee turnover. That should say it all. People quit, get fired, "lose their camp privileges" or get "restructured" on an almost daily basis. There is always the treat of being let go. This company was always in crisis during the time I worked for them. If they stuck to a plan for 3 months that was considered "long term planning". The upper management is volatile to say the least. The middle management is very young with no people or management skills. There is very little direction or leadership. You just try to do what you think you are supposed to do and reap the consequences (good or bad). The very high employee turnover makes it hard to do your job since your coworkers are constantly in training or the position is vacant. The only long term employees are the "buddies" of the management mentioned in the other reviews. On the outside it looks good but once you are working there you will realize its a very toxic work environment. Don't bother working there if you are looking to build a career. You won't be around long enough. There is a lot of talk of safety but I personally experienced many places that were lacking protocols. If you want to gain some quick experience, then you might want to give them a try. On the plus side, the pay was pretty decent and the operation interesting.
