    I worked at Nyrstar

    Pros

    A small clique of people are good to work with and are supportive.

    Cons

    Management is completely incompetent. They complain about not enough work being done while they sit in 4 hour meetings every day or take 6 week vacations. If you do good work it’s simply not good enough. Place glances over environmental issues with an attitude of we’ll just pay the fine. Overall felt very unsafe and financially unstable. The highest employee turnover I have ever seen. Don’t bother learning names. They’ll be gone in a couple of weeks.

    Pros

    People you work with in Clarksville TN are great, a real family

    Cons

    Management is all new and struggling to make the plant operate. EPA should look hard at this place, acid everywhere, above and below ground. Structural issues plant wide, even hand rails are paper thin.

    Advice to Management

    Continue as you are, corporate will be changing you soon

    I worked at Nyrstar full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    24-7 operations so a lot of hours available.

    Cons

    It is a very hot and dusty environment.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that your most important resource is your employees. If you give them what they need they will produce and your turnover rate will go down considerably.

    I have been working at Nyrstar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good co-workers. and good times. the work can be enjoyable if you let it.

    Cons

    Management has their head up their butt. And lies to employees daily about the desperate situation at the mines. This company is going under soon. TODAY on the same day they DEFAULTED on a massive loan interest payment, they also DEFAULTED on paying their employees.. NO check for us.

    Advice to Management

    Go somewhere else and let those who know how to run a real mine run it. Or just close the damn doors. mMay as well since no one will work there without a check. Not one person went underground today as a protest over not getting paid. Heck we were even told they couldnt write us paper checks because there was no money. THEY ARE DEAD BROKE AND CANT PAY EMPLOYEES

    I have been working at Nyrstar full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay for area but could be better

    Cons

    Individuals in positions that they are not qualified for just by holding a degree in "whatever".

    Advice to Management

    Your production teams know the mines better than management so maybe communicate with production
