Good Place to work
Vale is one of the biggest mining companies in Canada. I worked at the Port Colborne refinery; they are all nice people. As an intern, I expected to have received more guidance, but I guess the covid situation made things quite different for the management. Overall, Vale is a great place to gain mining experience and grow in your mining career

Ok workplace
Days are long, schedule isn’t ideal and sleep deprivation can be a real thing especially after a day shift, and the bus ride is very long and dragged out.

Nepotism at its best
Questionable ethics in management. Lots of backscratching and back rubs. Pay is good but you need to "play" to move up. Lots do. You can still keep your nose clean and ignore the management cults, long lunches and business trips and collect your bonus and earn a good coin. The Brazilian bosses talk a good game about ethics but ignore the behaviour here in Sudbury.

Decent place
Good place to work. Home at night. Pay is lower compared to contractors. Workers are good to each other for the most part.Union politics can get a little much.

Not the greatest corporate culture. Lack of opportunities to progress or learn other roles. Enjoyed my co-workers, but didn’t often feel valued as an employee
