Really great benefits ruined by a toxic work environment.
Dump Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Boddington WA – 3 July 2019
A typical day at work was pretty much a carbon copy of a day at work on most mine sites. It's all pretty generic these days.
What I learned from working for Newmont was don't ever work for Newmont or any other mining company again.
The management, from the highest level to the lowest, was petty, vindictive, unimaginative and backward thinking.
The workplace culture was pretty much the same as the culture on most modern mine sites - toxic! There is an instilled culture of betrayal, back stabbing, malicious gossip and vindictive and petty revenge for any slight, real or imagined
The hardest part of the job was having to put up with most of the people I had to work with and for.
The best part about working for Newmont was the roster, the free health benefits and the ( mostly ) permanent room. It hardly made up for all of the other negative stuff though.
Even time roster, free health benefits, permanent room.
No set career paths, no chance of advancement, extreme bias concerning who received training and/or promotion, untrustworthy supervisors and managers.
