Pros

People have flocked to the Elko Nevada area, the Carlin pit mine in my case, to be thankful to have a job. It's a secure thought and has benefits included.

Cons

The management, supervisors especially, are basically treating people like slaves to the lowest point, and have a mixed bag of reasons to fire you.It's ok for one person, different for the drinking/fishing pal. They need a standard of acceptance, cut the crap on female harassment, be aware of it, from supervisors to workmates.Supervisors need to follow trained procedures, have a brain, not be a family member of past and move in progression, or an eager idiot who wants a name tag and shove people around.You are losing good dedicated people over ignorance in supervision/policies.They never explain a workers rights in a situation, because most supervisors don't even know them! Profits are #1, safety always #2 until after the fact, they put on a good show to cover their butt first ALWAYS! Train supervisors and HR to today's standards, not make their own as see fit, continuity works great in a workplace!

Advice to Management

Get your head out of the sand, it's 2013, not 1935. There is a need to treat workers right, with reason for cause. I would NEVER invest into this outfit, just to line corporate pockets, slavery was supposed to be abolished years ago. If you have a large turnover of workers, maybe look down the line and see really why you're losing them.You spend a fortune on training, why lose them over ignorance on your part?

    Pros

    I worked at their smaller MTF lab and the people there were great. It is a pretty big company, fortune 500 and 46,000 employees, so there are the benefits of the big company. I worked at a 200 person lab, so there was definitely also the feel of a nice homey place to work. Very good work life balance working 9/80s.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, job was easy.

    Cons

    Rotating hours, and the junior high type atmosphere that is probably normal for mines.

    Advice to Management

    Getting rid of the rotating shift would probably be possible, despite the groaning of the work force who had to go on nights. This would help the health of the workforce imo.
