Richard O'Brien, WAKE UP to 2013!

Slave (Former Employee)
Carlin, NV

I worked at Newmont Mining full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPeople 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementGet 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?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
