    I have been working at Nyrstar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nyrstar has an excellent benefit program with a lot of vacation, a very good medical plan, a 50 % 401k match.

    Cons

    Mining segment is currently for sale and some of the mining operations have suspended operations for an undefined time. Will start up again however.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the excellent benefit program with a lot of vacation, the very good medical plan and the 401k match etc

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clarksville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Nyrstar (Clarksville, TN) in June 2009.

    Interview

    This was the easiest interview I ever went on. Talked to three people separately maybe. Very easy. But they took so long to offer I had completely forgot about them....

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I negotiated extra vacation should of negotiated more pay, they will be desperate for a good engineer in the future, they have none on staff now and will need somebody to do the sticky gooey hard jobs successfully in the near future...
