Most dangerous company ever.
Too many under qualified personnel I've ever experienced. Yelling, screaming and belittling is the normal at the morning supervision meeting.

I learnt a few things here, yet management let staff down. They get rid of you after a few months so they don't have to hire you permanently.
Mentoring wth the hands on tools for me was minimal, they always made me spotter rather than teach me things on the tools.. The buddy and bully culture needs to change, people who wanted to learn were overlooked for people who sucked up to the boss
Pros
Tickets and experience
Cons
Manager bully

Days were demanding,12 hour shifts and for the 4 months at Wodgina it would of been over 40 degrees every day. Didn't have a problem with upper management (always fair with me),with supervision i thought there was a dog eat dog culture, maybe that was coming from upper management. But all that i enjoyed the job,liked the workers in the crew and thought the camp excellent.

Don’t bother working there you ll regret it
Sorry to say but this company is the most reactive company I ve worked for and I ve been with a couple of the biggest miners.

They copy all the big mining companies policies trying to be better but make a mess of everything.

Some really good people at lower levels until you get to management level then there all useless,no pay rises either

I worked at on site as a Maintainer. The Culture was Toxic the Supervisor in my opinion was very controlling the whole crew were afraid of crossing him. The supervisor breached Safety rules and was Protected I walked out after a very short time with no job to go to due to serious Safety Concerns. It was a big waste of time for all concerned, I relayed my concerns to HR and upper management who were going to investigate it but never had the common decency to get back to me.

Never have I worked for a company that values massive egos at GM level, We left great jobs to work at Wodgina and were treated poorly when it folded.
Complete lack of professionalism in a lot of areas. The teams were poorly resourced.

Mine Surveyor mt marion.
Good mine life good technology equipment I.e.drones GPS diggers

Management is lacking. This does give growth opportunities though.

Planning is very reactive I.e. pocketing ore I stead of conventional mining method. This just mean your time management is top knotch. People are good generally and remuneration is fair 9/5 roster monday fly out 9th day home in Perth by 730 am

Good camp food
Pros
Security, development, listened too
Cons
Lack of management reactive mining methods plans change

4&1roster no good ,rdo days nothing to do ,food terrible, camp terrible, superintendents show no respect for the workers ,answers to questions at tool box meetings is always NO ,toxic environment to work in no wonder they have a high turnover of staff , people on the ground really nice most of them .
Purple circle around management and supervisors .

Knives in the back if you speak up about anything .

Promises and lies about everything that goes on

A good tip if you have to work at Wodgina keep your mouth shut and look after yourself because management WONT and be safe because they won't care DONT WORK FOR MRL /CSI WODGINA if you don't have to
Pros
None
Cons
Managment, camp, food everything

Been in the engineering industry for 30 plus years. Worst place to work. Managers are incompetent very much a reaction management style. Dont listen to staff on recommendations. I had to simply walk out as it was a TOXIC environment. I cannot write my true feelings about this awful place. They do not know how to spell professional. Noone smiles...ever. You work extra hours all the time and no time off in lieu. Wont let you leave early even when you do on the average of a day extra per week and the list goes on.
Pros
Free parking

In my stay in Mineral Resource Limited I have learn so much things most specially on teamwork. The management really cared about the safety of us. Workplace culture is good because I did not experienced bullying. The hardest part of job if there are many samples to be processed. The most enjoyable part when I finished the job quickly.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Sometime have many samples

You have to see it to believe it. Unrealistic expectations from Head Office stretching workers to their limits. Burn and Churn environment. Treated as a number not a human.
Pros
Good camp and food if your not working ridiculous overtime.
Cons
Don’t be fooled by the sugar coating.
