  1. "Good pay, better benefits"

    I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time

    Pros

    The pay is the better than I could hope for with my current education level. Also due to the fact they oprate in mostly rural areas, I'm got a position that I wouldn't be qualified for in a larger labor pool. Also, the company puts 10% in your 401k and offers a Roth 401k option, one of the best retirement programs in the country

    Cons

    Shift work, hours aren't flexible at all. Mostly in rural areas

    I have been working at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I get lots of time off. I'm out side in nature most of the time with little to no supervision.

    Cons

    Working for the mine, most people have to work night shift or rotating shifts. Not good for family life or to plan events out.

    Advice to Management

    Try to figure out a better schedule. Make it so people are not rotating from nights to days so often. Better yet Have the people that like nights work nights, and have the people that like days work days.
