    A Long History of Providing Opportunity

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsEnergetic, High Expectations, and Great Benefits. International travel was very exciting and great opportunity to learn from very smart people. Great respect for contribution of the individual and team.

    ConsAt times, challenged by the nature of politics surrounding natural resources and license to operate. Nature of the beast...

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider work from home schedules to reduce commute at corporate office as well as to attract the younger workforce to mining.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Structured and well-managed internship

    Industrial Hygiene Intern (Former Employee)
    Morenci, AZ

    ProsI enjoyed my internship and had the opportunity to learn quite a bit. I also was given opportunities to cross-train and even have a few experiences that were just for fun...such as riding in a haul truck and train (while still doing work). Very neat opportunity to see the full scope of the mining process at Morenci and I took a lot away from it. People are very friendly and there is definitely a good safety culture and family atmosphere.

    ConsMorenci is a fairly boring town and being older than the other interns I didn't really have much to do. Weekends were spent driving over two hours to Tucson. Housing was limited to I found myself living in a hotel all summer. No complaints about the company or internship itself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive information on career opportunities within the company post-graduation for those who aren't engineering interns.

    Best Internship and work experience I've ever been a part of!

    Field Engineer (Former Employee)
    Empire, CO

    ProsGreat people, great pay, and big jobs! An eye-opening experience to help learn new skills and further develop skills in mining/construction/engineering. Freeport provides all the necessary training to step foot on site of some of the biggest operations you will ever see. I highly recommend applying if you like to work hard and start a serious career.

    ConsI loved every part of my internship experience. There wasn't one bad thing about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. Mgmt was very motivating and supportive throughout my entire internship. I honestly enjoyed every minute of every day working for FCX. I did not want to leave and now I can't wait to get back to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
