I worked at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Great people, great pay, and big jobs! An eye-opening experience to help learn new skills and further develop skills in mining/construction/engineering. Freeport provides all the necessary training to step foot on site of some of the biggest operations you will ever see. I highly recommend applying if you like to work hard and start a serious career.

Cons

I loved every part of my internship experience. There wasn't one bad thing about it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. Mgmt was very motivating and supportive throughout my entire internship. I honestly enjoyed every minute of every day working for FCX. I did not want to leave and now I can't wait to get back to work.

    I worked at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits and ok schedule! When the Sx/Ew Plant was first started up they choose and hired the best in the industry and took care of their workforce Management at that time cared and showed and received the utmost respect.

    Cons

    As the first year concluded management changed hands and then the work enviroment turned hostile and reclusive, Upper management let go of the reigns and then the click mantality took over and then backstabbing and childs play ensued, supervision had alot to be desired lots of unsatisfied exempt employees and it trickled to the non exempt workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None to give i understand it is still the same if not worse! Management and the Company do not desire change!
