Bonne compagnie, mise sur la sécurité, productivité et rendement au détriment des employés
Mécanicien équipement stationnaire (Current Employee) –  Havre-Saint-Pierre, QC5 July 2018
Rio Tinto est une grosse compagnie qui veut faire sont profit et ou seule la sécurité prime sur se but. Notre convention est bonne mais ils essaient à chaque fois de nous réduire nos gains. Bonne esprit de travail dans notre équipe et un bon contre-maitre. La direction en place est dans une bonne direction pour amener la mine vers un meilleur avenir. Quart de travail de 8h jour soir nuit pour les plus jeunes et poste de jour pour les plus anciens.
Pros
Repas fourni
Cons
Avenir incertain

very stressfull
Maintenance Worker (Current Employee) –  Labrador City, NL17 May 2018
if you are considering this job please think twice
the work force is on a 8 week old strike right now. so if your interested in being a scab go for it you wont be welcome in this town..
as a foreman there you are the one they will point a finger at when they the mangers do wrong..
Pros
good money
Cons
very very poor management.

Marché de l'aluminuim
Directeur des opérations (Former Employee) –  Jonquière, QC11 May 2018
Avec la conjoncture mondiale, le marché de l'aluminium est en transformation. Pour rester compétitif, les entreprises doivent revoir leur modèle d'affaire. C'est ce qui c'est passé dans les 5 dernières années chez Rio Tinto. Dans ce contexte l'organisation doit compter sur du personnel avec un bon leadership d'impact.
Pros
Milieu très challengeant

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, BC30 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.
Pros
good pay
Cons
disrespect and poor equipment to complete given tasks

Multi Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Nhulunbuy NT22 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.
Pros
Beautiful location, nice people, good total of safety.
Cons
Heat, Dehydration, noise.
