    I have been working at Rio Tinto full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rio has a very strong safety culture and for the size of company they work very hard to take care of all of the employees

    Cons

    With a company this large it is almost impossible to avoid corporate politics. While it certainly exists, I think Rio makes an effort to avoid it or mitigate the negative consequences as much as possible.

    Senior Mine Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Rio Tinto (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    They had an HR person follow me around all day and not say a word, but just watch me and how I interacted with their employees at the site where I was interviewing.
