    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (more than 5 years)


    Great pay and benefits- unlimited sick days, free health care, 9/80 every other Friday off. If you're just looking for a nice paycheck you'll love it.


    Long term outlook for the business isn't good. Too many processes. Systems get in the way of accomplishing meaningful work. Too much change for the sake of change. NO RAISES, just COL. HR arrogance. Deadbeat employees not held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvements are great but too many changes keep employees unsettled and unsure of what's coming next. Walk the Talk - reward hard workers and eliminate those that don't. This isn't Socialism and hurts morale for the high performing workers.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BHP Billiton.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview via campus recruiting procedures at my university. I didn't get a lot of information about the company upfront- BHP knows it holds a competitive environment and it expects people to seek information for themselves. My interview was more cultural than anything else- the interviewers just wanted to get a feel for my personality and see that I was confident enough to be relaxed throughout the process.
