    I have been working at Goldcorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    By far the best wages and benefit plans of anyone around. There are plenty of opportunities for career advancement for those that seek it and work for it.

    Cons

    Too many contractors that do not have the same training that we have in safety. Communication is lacking from mining managers to workers.

    Advice to Management

    We have plenty of injuries that come from contractors yet we still hire them. Why do we hire contractors with poor safety records to work for a company that has safe production as their number one priority? Better use of Conveyor on a quarterly basis at least of each mine and their direction and results from the mining manager.
