Business Improvement Specialist (Former Employee) – Brockman WA – 30 November 2017
Great company to work for with excellent salary and benefits. Corporate exposure helps you to increase your strategy and financial skills. The workplace culture is good. Something to improve is the tolerance to non-native English speakers which makes difficult to these people to step up in higher positions (management positions) - this is the hardest part of the job. In the minesite, and depending on the manager, there is a bias to judge sooner than later to introvert people - this is not welcome in a competitive environment like Rio. You have to invent jokes and just pretend to be extrovert - this is a success factor to step up (apart from your English skills). Most enjoyable part of the job is that you have challenging objectives to reach which makes you exploit your skills and knowledge in a collaborative environment.
Company to grow professionally and personally
Not an inclusive culture, lack of tolerance for non-native English speakers
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) – Karratha WA – 9 August 2017
The salary and benefits were amazing, it was my first taste of a high paying job, especially for my young age. But the work I was doing can get repetitive extremely quickly. Even though the pay was good, it was not the type of job I would make my career.
Process Improvement Advisor (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 10 February 2017
Safety culture is a focus at RTIO and they spend any amount of time needed to stop and focus on safety - not only on site, in the CBD offices as well. My Manager was very professional and approachable and, if the opportunity arose, I would definitely work with him again. The benefits are very good and include Incentive Bonus, time off to volunteer, flexibility arrangements and excellent remuneration. They even provided fresh fruit and Nespresso Coffee pods - an easy way to my heart!
controller (Former Employee) – Perth Airport WA – 29 February 2016
I worked for Rio Tinto for 3 years and they were a very good company to work for, I worked 6 days on and 6 days off, sometimes requiring me to FIFO to and from Cape Lambert in Karratha.
A typical day at work consisted of answering calls on the radio and monitoring screens to make sure the remote controlled machinery onsite was working well, I also was loading trains with iron ore and moving heavy machinery via remote control.
My work colleagues were very genuine easy to get along with people. the management of the particular department I worked in were very much the micro-management type.
good work life balance, good benifits, friendly, helpful colleagues
Safe environment and sufficient company to work for. Management ensures that every body work safe and knows what is expected of them by having weekly meetings. Training is a big part of Rio Tinto's vision
Rio Tinto is a leading global mining and metal company who focus on finding mining and processing the earths mineral resources
