MMU Operator (Current Employee) – BC Canada – 3 May 2018
Inexperienced management. Disorganized company structure. Lowered pension plan contributions for all employees while company had increased profits for the fiscal year. Employees are paid different wages for the same jobs. Some employees get a live out allowance while others are denied.
It’s a job to gain experience for better paying jobs in the mining industry.
It’s lower paying than other companies in the mining sector.
MMU Operator (Current Employee) – BC Canada – 15 March 2018
The company is global and ran exactly that way. The employees have a tendency to know more about the site, trucks and operations than it’s managers. It’s a company that recognizes their profits until the last quarter when evaluations start for your annual employee increase. Then head office comes out with a sad song about the economy taking a turn for the worst. The company managers will utilize their credit cards to their max at dinners for meetings on expenditures. But will buy the employees the cheapest safety gear around. They hire managers with no experience, if this is you... you’ll advance quickly in the company.
