Alright.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Was great until changed revolving shift work to 5 days a week from 4 days. Adding the 5th day lost all recovery day from weekly switching shift hours, nights, then days then afternoons. Once 5 day work week took over from 4 wasn’t any energy time for life/work balance

Pros

Scheduled work shifts check in check out.

Cons

Rotating shift work

Toxic

J’ai passé plus de 25 années dans cette entreprise et j’ai vue plusieurs changements organisationnel et les 7 dernières années ils ont tout détruit.Un manque de respect total de la nouvelle direction. L’a où on encourage l’hypocrisie et l’incompétence. Je ne pensais jamais qu’une multinationale serait gérée par des incompétents à ce point.

Pros

Le salaire

Cons

Aucun respect

.J'ai eu 30 ans de service et plaisir- 1 patron a detruit ca dans 2 ans

Ils sont tres prets a aider n'importe qui voulant monter. La systeme SAP etait le fun a implanté mais a la fin, ca a cause mon départ comme lien (service a la clientele-marketing) avec USA. Ils pouvaient le faire sans moi. Mon surprise d'etre envoyée 2 ans avant mon pension a detruit ma personne et mon estime de moi. Ca a ete tres dure, mais la compagnie n'est peu comme ca.

Pros

Salaire, Benefices, Education

Cons

Dans mon temp un manager nous harcellait avec les chances de coupures

The management is horrible

They would rather hire and fire people all day based on personality than just get the job done. It’s beyond me how they keep contracts. By far the worst environment I’ve ever worked in.

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Management, wage for industry, Doesn’t care about safety

Environnement sécuritaire et charge de travail raisonnable

Le plus difficile venait de l'horaire de travail et la disparité des taches à accomplir.

Toxic Work Environment

Management is a joke. No company moral. Employees constantly getting others in trouble. No company bonuses. No company functions. If your a hard worker it wont matter there. Lazy employees. People under the influence. Dreaded that place everyday. Not a good turn out rate. Always hiring and firing. I wouldnt recommend it.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

Mediocre Management

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.

Pros

It’s a job to gain experience for better paying jobs in the mining industry.

Cons

It’s lower paying than other companies in the mining sector.

Lacks experience where it matters

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.

Pros

Decent fellow employees who are willing to help.

Cons

Management knows nothing about mining
