Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Have worked under BMA with Downer Mining. Downer keeps thing simple with a lot of discipline. BMA make a lot of changes to policies and over complicates matters. Over all I enjoy working in the mining industry I have done so with working for OEM,s and directly working for Contractors over most of my life.

If it wasn’t for the camaraderie among workers the place would be intolerable

Management have a bully response to any real and genuine concerns as they find it easier to shut it down and belittle people with their arrogant attitudes rather than try to actually resolve real problems and issues. Lots of friends and relatives make it into roles that would have been better suited to other more qualified and experienced people. It is quite a depressing place to work and the staff turnover and absenteeism directly reflect that.

Pros

It pays the bills

Cons

Some of the management only have a position because they have a mate in a higher role, Some are just terrible and sad people that are way out of touch and lack basic people skills.

not a nice crowd

management have no respect for the real workforce and is made up of supervisors whome are overloaded with unrealistic exspectations by higher management.This is then transferred through the workforce,where the hypocracy of safety is only superficialy relayed through prestarts meetings to appease the major client.This company uses peoples fear of not being able to pay their morgages to enslave them in a workplace with less respect then being in prison.

Pros

nil

Cons

unrespectful
