only work with them when jobs are short there supervisors were very short on communication skills they seem to under the pump then they passed in on to the work force,a great deal of safety aspects were ingnored.even though they pushed for safety but at the same time they had a dead line to keep hence the double standards BHP are top heavy to many chiefs to many people walking around doing nothing trying to justify there salary .




yes long hrs on flat rate wage theft

Productive and collaborative work place with opportunity to grow up the ladder. If you are with the right team and location and also with required STEM.

Collaborative Engaging Constantly Changing

The culture is the biggest difference about working at BHP. When you first start, you can tell something is "off" to what you are familiar. Colleagues truly believe we are in a place where we can accomplish more in a few years than a decade elsewhere. Senior Management are friendly, and even VPs sit out on the floor with everyone else. It is a true egalitarian environment. BHPs commitment to innovating, gender parity and community are the reasons I stay and hope to stay for many many years to come.

I will never work there again for the period I was there I didn't do anything work. My experience there was bad and to make things worse the contracting company I was working for there didn't want to pay us so we took the matter to the union in which they had sorted it out for us.

Poor culture

Very poor culture and unsupportive. Always looking over your shoulder in fear of getting knives in the back. Poor management who are threatened by people with ideas. Over complicated systems where the supervisor is merely a puppet. Worst culture I’ve ever experienced

Competitive and striving work environment, the company supports personal development and work/live balance. Promoting reasonable values and inspiring objectives.

Great Experience

The role at BHP is just perfect for me as it uses my basic knowledge of managing a department with little to no issues whatsoever. Communication with various other teams is somewhat staggered but then who is perfect? All-in-all, grateful for the experience into the industry

Flexible, forward thinking workplace

BHP is a great place to work. The company recognises that people are their greatest asset and employee safety and welfare is at the core of everything they do and every decision made. Diversity & Inclusion, Employee Engagement, Competitive Remuneration practices and Employee Development are key business initiatives given support from the top down.

Latest technology

I work as a contractor for BHP while i do enjoy my work time with this company i am only contracting to them. 8/6 roster is one of the best rosters that can be found and i currently do this roster.

So much politics

Great place to work with some amazing talented people. The pay is great, but the endless day to day politics grinds you down after a while. Some good managers, but like all big companies, lost of useless ones too.

Very regimented and strict code of conduct

Tasks are very delineated and a strict code of conduct enforced. Many meetings and collaborative reporting tasks involved. Very strict safety rules. Management continuously track performance. Good opportunities if hired directly. Most employees are contractors though.
