    I worked at Nyrstar full-time


    High salaries and good benefits. Intelligent employees at management level and below.. Lots of potential in the future if cons can be overcome.


    Poor cash flow performance and financial instability. High turnover and frequent layoffs. Highly political at executive level, leading to unsteady direction for entire company.

    Advice to Management

    First, admit failures in operational strategy and debt financing situation. Next, remove those who were actually responsible for those mistakes, the executives. Stop covering financial mistakes up with short-term cuts to personnel, and focus on long-term strategic pillars of the business, your customers.

    I interviewed at Nyrstar in October 2014.


    There were two interviews in the main office in Zurich. The office facility is nice and in a very good location. The interview went well. People interviewing were easy going and mainly focused on the personality aspects. There were no tests or cases.

It also produces lead that is sold and used in batteries. Nyrstar processes more than one million tons of zinc per year, with more than half of its global production sold to Europe.
