Great people to work with
Forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Port Colborne,Ont18 February 2013
Was in research department so we were always doing different projects. Had the opputunity to learn new things. Worked with different chemicals. Mixed,weighed and labelled for shipping. Management was great and all friendly.Co-workers were all helpfull and friendly. The hardest part of the job was saying good-bye. We were all on contract and all got laid off at the same time as we had no more funding for projects for the 2013 year. Was the best job i ever had learning and given the chance with really no experience at all working in a chemical refinery.
Pros
had great co-workers

being on contract

A glimps into First Line Supervisory work at Vale
Front Line Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON7 April 2018
Typical Day involves a morning meeting 6:45am with all supervisors and upper management involving the previous days production, safety talk, injury review, IM review, discuss work being performed that day, discuss high priority work required, 7:00am line up the crew with daily safety information followed by specific crew assignments relating to what their task is for that particular day .Field visits throughout the shift to ensure proper procedure's and safety aspects are being followed. Conversations with crew members on the Floor in regards to any concerns or issues they may have on that particular day, input payroll, documentation of daily activities, concerns or issues, discussion with DCS operator and Metallurgical Eng. to produce the highest quality of feed, adjust mill performance and Assays to achieve goals set by upper Eng. Things learned, adjust to worker behaviors and performance, employees are individual in comparison to others, getting to know them in order to be able to help them. Hardest part is not to mix friendship with work ethics. Most enjoyable, everyday is different, no two are the same.
