If you are part of the "clique", meaning the party team, with the managers including the GM, you will rise, even if you know very little about anything. It's a buddy and bully system, if you're a buddy, you'll move up, if you're a threat, you'll be bullied. HR is a joke!!! The only one that wasn't part of their corrupt clique was terminated, perhaps because she had morals, ethics and integrity.
Its great, until someone else makes a mistake and you have to take a random drug test for no reason. Cannabis is legal, but don't do it on your days off, NO NO NO, they will punish you for you Saturday night legal behaviour 2 weeks later! and laugh and smoke a join when they get home avoiding their own issues.
Pay is great. Many company events, family oriented. Fun group of co-worker. But it all comes with a high cost of very poor Management skills.
Depends on the role. Many head office employees can work from home when needed, just not full time.
Need a union and some bullies to leave.
Other then that mining will pay it way to keep it open for a long time.
