    I have been working at Barrick Gold full-time

    Pros

    The company has a very strong focus on Safety

    Cons

    Training on equipment (Loaders, skidsteers, ect.) is done by other operators rather than through a formal training program.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see a stronger training program that ensures operators are as safe as possible while operating equipment
