    Great pay and benefits. Safe, relaxed work environment. Safety is primary! Excellent people and fun to work with. Highly recommend. Exciting environment.

    I worked at Goldcorp as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good place to work, the people are very nice and the lunches very good. The lifetime of the mine is more than 20 years.

    Cons

    It needs more communication between the departments. I wanted more technical projects during my internship but it was ok anyway.

    Advice to Management

    They have a good overview for the company but they have to check specificly the mine site. It needs more coordination between the departments.
