    I have been working at Barrick Goldstrike

    Pros

    Great pay, extensive training, great emphasis on safety. I'm only scheduled to work 14 days out of a 28 day rotation.

    Cons

    The town of Elko. It's got NOTHING going on. If you don't mind a small town with nothing to do, and you can get by entertaining yourself, this job is excelent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Barrick Goldstrike.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a career fair on the university's campus. Barrick was holding mock-interviews in preparation for full interviews the following day. The interview was performed by a recruiter and lasted about 75 minutes. It was mostly behavioral. They asked why I'd chosen my major and why I wanted to work at the mines. A few safety and personality questions were mixed with the typical previous experience inquiries. The overall feeling was extremely amicable and professional. The interviewer was personable and friendly.
