Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have been with York for over a year. Anytime I needed to contact anyone for any reason, there was no hassle. They’ve been very understanding and professional since day 1. I would recommend York to anyone that’s trying to get their foot in the door of the mining industry, you’ll have a great team behind you.

Pros

Great pay, awesome support

Cons

None

Good job placement and paid well

I’ve been with York search group for 5 1/2 months and I have been able to convert to full time with hard work and good support from the York search group management team.

Pros

Reimbursements for travel

Cons

They won’t actually driving to the airport lol

Great company to work for

I worked at York for just over a year and have absolutely nothing bad to say about them. They are very friendly to deal with and answer all questions you have almost immediately. I worked in a position where I had to travel regularly and never was there a problem or issues with travel money. Even with regularly travel changes due to Covid. Just send in receipts and no hassle at all. I have not heard a bad complaint from anyone I have worked with from York.I would highly recommend them.

Pros

Work life ballance

Cons

Travel

Working with York Search Group

I am grateful to the entire team at York....They did everything in their power to accommodate and support their on site staff. They were available and engaged with the employees whenever they were needed...I was proud of the way we were seen by our client and I have never really seen a contractor/ primary relationship work this seamlessly. Make no mistake... it’s a tough environment, but it’s a rewarding job.

Pros

Good co-workers, good wages

Cons

Long travel days, harsh winter weather

Great place to get your foot in the door

YSG was a great company to get your foot in the door. Communication was on point and they where able to answer any questions right away. Pay was good very friendly staff that will quickly go out of their way to help you with any issues if they where to arise. If anyone was looking to get up into Baffinland I will absolutely recommend them to go through YSG.

Pros

Good pay, well taken care of

Cons

Long travel days long but to be expected working in the arctic

My oh my where do I start

Well I had thought this would be a great place working at baffinland. These are the most inbred incompetent people I have ever met. Hands down. I had an issue with a broken seat in a 25 year old grader. I was told to lose weight by the maintenance supervisor. I’m 5’11 300 pounds. So yeah I know I could shed a few pounds but there was no need of saying that. I go home on days of come back and they said it was fixed. It wasn’t. I ran it for 2 shifts and then had a lot of pain and refused to run it. I got let go because of this. If you are going to work there you are not expected to work through your breaks but it may mean you keeping your job so...... my mine ops foreman had a grade 8 education (34 years old) and ran the job exactly like someone with a grade 8 mentality would. The full time baffinland employees on my shift would cut your throat in a heartbeat but the York guys were pretty nice. If you have no respect for yourself or others then this is the place for you. Peace

Pros

Free flights

Cons

Unsafe and ignorant

So easy to talk too and entire York team is on your side

There aren't enough nice things I can say about the YSG team. All are very intelligent, know the businesses in which they provide and place their candidates in the best rolls as possible based on YOUR QUALIFICATIONS.Very knowledgeable, easy to talk too and always willing to answer any questions ( even at 12:30 AM )10/10 hands down

Great company to work for

York is a great company to work for. They are helpful and truly care and want you to succeed and be hired on full time wherever your placement is with them. They always are quick to reply to any questions or concerns you have day or night. I would strongly recommend to anyone who has the opportunity to work for York to do so.

Middle man company

York is contractor for Baffinland, so it is depends on the Mine if you get rotation or not. If there is not rotation you can wait even for months prior get another one.

Pros

Contractor for mine

Cons

if is there not rotation you will not get excact date for return....even for months
