It’s a good local job (if your a miner)
It is a difficult place to feel secure in your employment. There is minimal respect for tradespeople. In their eyes you field fixing a piece of equipment in a hot dusty poorly ventilated heading laying in a puddle doesn’t contribute to production and doesn’t warrant any incentive pay. This creates completely different attitudes between operations and maintenance departments and creates unnecessary friction and makes it difficult to have everyone working towards the same goal.Wages have fallen behind competitors. No post retirement benefits for new hires. No underground premiums or production bonus for maintenance employees. They expect everything to keep chugging along running on fumes. They are setting things up to fail as an excuse to contract out more work and bring in more contractors. They are always in cost cutting mode yet waste an incredible amount of money on silly things that do nothing to increase safety, production or morale. Their always creating new rules and often painting themselves into a corner once implemented.There is very little accountability especially with outside contractors.They are very set in their ways and anyone who’s worked elsewhere who tries to contribute meaningful change is met with nothing but pushback. Minimal interest in industry best practices. Not much changes because most employees have never worked anywhere else and therefore don’t know any better.

Management try to preach the right stuff but often falls to the wayside for production
Very flavor of the month company cannot align on true goals for the company as they implement something 1 month and get rid of it the next month for something new so techs moral is at an all time low as most work gets pushed on them and taking away from office personnel

Great place to grow & learn.
Awesome place to learn and grow. They give you the time to learn the plant and help you along the way. It is a large plant and they allow the potential candidates a say in where they will work.

Great place to work as no two days are alike.
Takes a long time to become a full timer. 12 hour shifts and no benefits until you become full time. Great trainers, always willing to help and great co workers.
