good paying job, lots of time for family, very poor management. disrespectful to the exteme with little to no consideration for their employees.
Some temporary supervisor work (Current Employee) – Kitimat, BC – 30 January 2018
Good pay, lots of family time, pension plan. Unfortunately, like many large companies, people are not a priority. Production over the safety (circumventing safety rules for own purposes) World class smelter my butt. They forget about their people. The plant is definitely not built around people. People are to be exploited and disrespected and there is little chance for moving up not that you want to go into management as you seem to get brain washed when you do become a foreman. No one is willing to stand up for sensibility or the good operators. Doomed to fail.
disrespect and poor equipment to complete given tasks
Proud To Work And Be A Member of A Group Of This Company.
Multi Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Nhulunbuy NT – 22 January 2018
Every day was a very pleasant day when we were driving to the Gate house.The safety that i was feeling just before I enter the plant and even at the end of the day.They all kept us safe. I leaned how to minimize my risks for any accident me and my group of workers.The EHS personal kept us updated daily for any Hazards in all areas.Had to have our eyes open for any slip-trip hazards and any spills around our work place.Most enjoyable part for me was to understand the progress and working in all the areas of the plant meeting new operators and CEO personal daily.
Beautiful location, nice people, good total of safety.
Était il y a quelques années une entreprise agréable avec un climat d'équipe et de défis, aujourd'hui, suite aux nombreuses coupures les rôles sont très mal définis, la charge de travaille est impossible à accomplir en 40 hrs (les cadres ne sont pas payés sur l'heure du diner contrairement aux syndiqués). Coupures après coupures il faut toujours en faire plus avec moins sans aucune aide ou formation continue. Chaque semaine une nouvelle démission d'un employer cadre (superviseur et planificateur mécanique entre autre). La transition avec le système SAP à été un échec selon moi et le simple fait de vouloir acheter un boulon est un embuche de plusieurs minutes et celui-ci arrivera 4 semaines plus tard... Nous ne discutons pas beaucoup des salaires mais sans donner de chiffres exacte on voit rapidement qu'il existe des différences majeurs entre nous pour un même poste. Nos dirigeant cherche des solutions mais oublie de revenir aux bases... Personnellement j'aime la région donc je compte rester encore mais je n'ai pas de plan long terme avec cette entreprise.
Grande entreprise, ressource externe et projet interessant
Operator (Current Employee) – Kitimat, BC – 2 July 2017
As a shift worker it's always diffult to have proper rest. The work environment is challenging but it is then multiplied by the poor management in place. They don't respect any of the front line workers. They don't honour collective agreements and feel like they can do whatever they want without consequence. They disregard health and safety in favour of production and put workers at risk. Fortunately, it is a Unionized work place and we enjoy great wages and benefits. If they keep treating their workers poorly they won't have any left to do the job.
Wages, benefits and Unionized
Disrespect towards workers, bad management, profits over people
Engineer (Current Employee) – Canada – 25 June 2017
Working at a large operation, there are several technical challenges which makes the work very interesting. Being part of a large organization, you have numerous resources available in which you can tap into when you come across problems that the operation has not previously experienced.
Operations - Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Yellowknife, NT – 10 June 2017
Management and operations were very helpful and accommodating for QC testing. The only limitation was what you would be willing to do, or learn, on site. Overall the people on site, at all levels, were a lot of fun to work with.
Support Staff (Former Employee) – Canada – 31 May 2017
Higly intellectual staff but treat people as mechanical object. Very cost and production driven company, which find it difficult engage people. They are loosing touch to the very heart of the business - their people. Work life balance is hard to achieve. It's a very stressful work environment.
