Make it work for u
Ups and downs.With all large businesses, there are some amazing experiences and those not so great. Most importantly in this business is to stay positive.
Since initiating a woke business framework they have promoted a number of women into management positions who are exceptionally inexperienced in management and the work itself. To accommodate bullying, lying and manipulation by this "charming group of ladies" accepted by upper management. Don't be fooled by their "code of ethics". They don't abide by it and will threaten you if they have to. You will be surprised by their antics, as those who reside in the upper echelons are frightened to lose their overpaid positions. In some teams - not all - you will encounter what can only be described as a highly toxic environment. Dysfunctional, incompetence, mediocrity etc. It blew my socks off as to how bad it was. Waste and bureaucracy was everywhere. HR as well - so don't bother going there.
Above market salary
If you want to see how truly bad a corporate can be go to BHP. The waste, the incompetence, the bullying by people who claim to be oh so woke!
I enjoyed working with BHP and excelled my skills. Management is cooperative and colleagues are helpful. A typical day starts early morning and finishes by the evening. Mostly it is a very busy day with dozens of tasks to be completed. It gets busier during the shutdowns but then gets a little slow once shutdowns are over. Best place ever to work at Roxby downs Mines.
On Job Training
Some times challenging
The people were helpful and supportive at all times, workmates are great and work as a team. I'm very happy to be apart of this company. The days and nights are long but in the mining Industry that's the name of the game.. don't do it if your heart isn't set on it.
Good pay, workmates, love operating the equipment
not really much to be honest..
Typical days start early which is refreshing! I learned it is your word versus the immediate supervisors in this situation I had a poor supervisor who I would not recommend. Otherwise, they treated you well but didn't seem like any room for advancement. Challenge was minimal, very 'woman' driven workplace which was a different experience for me.
I enjoyed my time at BHP, however, the culture needs a drastic overhaul. More than 80% of workers are contractors, and to me, that is purely disgusting in today's world. There is no security at BHP. None whatsoever. The 'us vs them' mentality is permeated throughout the culture at BHP and needs to be changed if they are going to attract a loyal and dedicated workforce. The world's biggest mining company posted a US$12b profit in the first quarter of 2020, and then proceeded to make over 2000 employees redundant. What kind of message does that say to you?
Working remotely 'culture'
Massive amount of contractors. They do not value their staff.
My experience with BHP has been most rewarding. Challenging documentation to prevent plant operation failure. Liaise with engineers to produce quality maintenance programs and make decisions with other BHP personnel to keep large mining equipment in operation. The hardest part of the job is making the correct dissensions to prevent breakdowns as high cost if the plant shuts down. The results with major breakdowns is sufficiently less and site management have reviewed and are more at ease.
13hr days working a week day shift, week nighshift then week r n r, strict safety procedures, great training and advancement opportunities. Pay was great and share matching program
Fifo lifestyle takes a toll
