Wide array of clerical and administrative duties for FIFO and residential teams. Extremely varied tasks - travel, PPE, HSE involvement, reporting, etc I learned what teamwork really is Management is great, with a progressive attitude Workplace culture is professional yet casual and inclusive Hardest part of the job was probably trying to juggle so many tasks that related to people on rotating rosters. Required good use of personal notes and a sharp memory Most enjoyable part was the camaraderie
Pros
Great place to expand skills and get paid well to do it
Cons
Mining and resources sector can be unstable

Departmental infighting, constantly looking over your wondering who's gonna stab you in the back, any excuse to pin you for trumped up safety breaches, toxic workplace on all sites, management looks down at you like you're vermin, too busy focusing on paperwork and not the job. Would not recommend rio tinto to anyone, its not a place of employment its suicide watch
Pros
Like what?
Cons
Being dehumanising

This place was run both muppets. Internal fighting between departments and a lack of understanding of basic principals of management by this place was a sorry and actually sad think to see

My team are nice to work with. Some of the team work harder than others. But I have found that in every Office that I have worked. There is always a select few that go above and beyond.

Rio Tinto is slow in the pass out process on machines and some of the material is not easy to decipher . An RPL does not mean anything to them even when you give them proof of prior operation and provide skill tickets . Their processes are rediculous.

Working at Rio Tinto, Bundoora was an incredibly fast-paced ordeal with 60-hour weeks, but it was also a highly rewarding role where all team members were constantly updated on the progress of the project and how their efforts were being well-received. Staff morale was also very high because everyone was encouraged to look out for each other's mental and physical well-being. Overall, it was not a role for the faint-hearted, but it was one I would recommend to an ambitious graduate seeking a fresh start in a chemical engineering role.

Not a good company to work for. Even worse if you're a female. The culture in some areas is the worst I have ever endured. Don't get me wrong, there are some great people there but there are far too many 'old school boys' still there who are more in 'protect their job' mode than want to do the right thing. HR will listen but does nothing. If you want to do the right thing and wanted to be treated fairly, this is not the company for you. Some of the behaviours I have seen towards colleagues is disgraceful. Persistent bullying and discrimination. If someone wants to go after you, they can all will only stop when you leave.

Good pre work information and job descriptions. Information was always available from supervisors and work colleagues. Rio allowed me to advance my career with training and job opportunities. Workplace culture changed with sites and experience. Hardest part of the job was due to isolation of sites and availability of equipment. Most enjoyable was the opportunity and challenges.

The challenges of driving a major project through an EPCM proved frustrating, with a lack of accountability across the project causing frustrations and a lack of job satisfaction. The root of the problem lay within the EPCM management team coupled with a soft RTIO management approach.

Good company with poor managers as there is no real leaders at this company. All employees are constantly worried about their jobs !! Could be a lot better with great leaders.

Be ready for the challenges that exist in any large organization. Very driven organization to succeed and include diversity with people. Great personal development opportunities and you'll work with some of the best and brightest in the mining industry. A great place to learn and grow as a result.
Pros
Great perks. Allowances health care, employee share scheme, bonus
Cons
Can be politically challenging with more senior roles
