BHP Employee Review

No experienced workers left to learn from.

22 years around and with BHP in various leadership and front line roles. Not a good work place for males of any age. Too many people trying to get out of there current job role so no accountability and no experienced workers left to help with on job coaching. Great place to learn how to get out of work and no leader support for help because they have no experience doing the tasks. Imagine going to school to learn how to rebuild and engine and your teacher is a qualified hairdresser. What you see on the posters, ads and public propaganda is far from what the company does for its people. The pay and stability were the only things BHP had going for it now both are gone. Pay has slowly dropped to not even competitive and stability has gone because leaders discipline workers for speaking up out of frustration for having no direction or competent senior people to get training from.


It’s a job if you can’t get another one.


No support, no one to learn from money is terrible for how long your away from home, long work hrs for anyone outside of an office.

Good company, but only if ok working for natural resources company

Large, well established company based in Melbourne, Australia. Decent pay and benefits. However, only pursue if interested in working for a natural resources company.

Going Down the Hill

BHP has been a good company with procedures and principles. But that has been changing in the last 5 years. The experienced people are leaving and its getting filled up with talkers and not dowers. To get promoted you should be a talker and a woman. Degrees, knowledge and experience. They don't count. The gender balancing campaign have plagued the company. As ratio of men to women in the trade and Technical schools is almost 80 percent. To fill up the positions equally the positions are being filled with the women that never been to technical or trade schools.


Good food
