    Pros

    People are great. Pay is great. ($28.00 an hour after probation/ $22 an hour for first 6 months). You learn a lot here.

    Cons

    Long commute, about an hour from Vegas. Union isn't very strong. No emergency aid on site during night shift. And it's bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to budget better. Your spending way to much money. Prime example leach 2.0 tanks. Save $700,000 buying steel tanks, then spending 4 million repairing them. Someone needs to be held responsible.

Don't look for any mollycoddling of the earth here. Molycorp mines and produces lanthanide and molybdenum compounds, concentrates, and oxides using open-pit mining techniques. Lanthanides (which include cerium, lanthanum, and yttrium) are used in everything from cell phones and computers to X-ray film and television glass. The company, however, is staking its future on the production of rare earth oxides (REO). Molycorp went public in July 2010 with an initial public offering (IPO).
