Hard work but great opportunities for those wanting to progress within the company
Various Full-time & Contract positions (Former Employee) –  Perth WA1 March 2018
Although I enjoyed working with BHP at the time, I am now looking for something with less responsibility/stress.

BHP demand a very high quality of workmanship from all employees to enable them to deliver the great results they have achieved and offer great opportunities to advance within the company for those wishing to better themselves.

Long hours were often part of the role and flexibility was a must.

Great camp and facilities, solid SME fleet
Mine Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Perth WA13 August 2016
Management are ruthless particularly mining senior dept leaders. Since the down turn their attitude towards their people is there are plenty of operators out there willing to take your job. Upper leadership are hypocritical and untrustworthy, safety is just a word to them unfortunately. Its all about production at Yandi. Worst company I have ever worked for as far as their care for their people is concerned, everyone at that site are fearful for their jobs day in day out and senior leadership seem to revel in it.
Pros
Great camp and pay rates.
Cons
No chance of advancement/ weak leadership/ Culture terrible
