Excellent mentors

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Some excellent mentors to help adjust to BHP systems of operation.Unfortunately management focused on own personal KPI'S to advance their careers and not focused on efficiency, schedules or budgets.


Relatively autonomous


Stuck for 14 weeks at a time in WA through Covid pandemic

A great workplace with a fantastic team.

BHP are very good at setting the standard and bringing you up to it. I had a great crew to work with, never felt left out or ignored and always felt appreciated for my work. I learned a lot of skills that have been important for my future career growth and felt like I mattered as a colleague. The work crews can be a bit insular, but management encouraged cooperation and rotated staff to gain broader skills and experience. Good food at camp and machinery and plant was well maintained and safe.


Great crew, great facilities, always have the tools to do the job, support from senior leaders and job satisfaction.


extreme weather conditions, isolation, working away from home.

Ethics and culture are words not theirvway of conducting a business. Lack of support and communication. Management is clicky and constant turnover

Studied at FFA which was a disaster. Safety and lessons were done last minute and unorganised. Lots of down time waiting for equipment or tooling. Big lasses and training wasn't supervised as it should be


Options of sites. Big company. Foo4d was good.


No support. Equipment and tools were issues. Politics was a joke.

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at BHP?

If you’re wanting to develop skills this isn’t the place. They give false promises and never meet them. No advancement unless you’ll fill a quota.

Good to work there if you’re just chasing money and NOT after advancement or development. If you’re wanting to become a better and more skilled professional then I’d recommend looking else where which is now what I’ve done.Pretty much just a number here. Now they’re bringing in untrained and unskilled Maintenance Associates at a cheaper rate to take over from any diesel fitters that’s leave. It’s a hazard/death in the making.

Great camp ammenities at Spinifex, Yandi used to be a great place to work. I met some great people and made lifelong friends.

I learnt so much at OHP3 OHP1 and OHP2 I had a fantastic Supervisor at OHP2/3 with a mostly awesome crew and when moved across to OHP1 also luckily got a fantastic Supervisor and Crew in the beginning. I loved working on the plant and enjoyed being trained up as a Step up Supervisor.The last 8 months of my 4 years there however was rather unpleasant due to a few people.

Productive and friendly place to work

Spent five years with BHP as an operator all ways something different to do truck loader dozer excavator or face shovel, not just the same machines day in and day out some like it some don’t but it’s never boring and never asked to do anything without a plan and with a safety first approach to everything would highly recommend any one to give them a try if you go to work with a good attitude you will get it in return,


Great roster


Can’t think of anything maybe 12 hrs a day but that standard in mining

Overall good experience

Collborative and diverse

BHP offers an enjoyable place to work which promotes flexible working and a diverse workforce. BHP expects hard work from their employees but you are rewarded with a good competitive salary, a good work culture and work collegues that become your family. There are many opportunities within the company and lots of room to move around from one role to another which means that many employees stay with the company their entire careers.
