Great place to work
Production Foreman (Former Employee) –  Mt Lake Park, MDJuly 18, 2017
They shut down my operation, and I was forced to find a new job. It was a great place to work, with a real awareness for safety and the employees. I wish I could have worked for them longer.

Its what it is to be expected
Pit (Former Employee) –  Gillette wyomingJune 9, 2017
The mine is big It has good pay but that's about it the days to nights could be hard on your body know what your getting into before hand but that being said there really is nothing else going for it other then that. For one the management don't have a clue and most of them don't know even know how to lead and have poor people skills and also there is no advancement out there its just who you are related to or who you know its what gets you places out there. Worst years of my life glad that chapter is over.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Poor management, no advancement, hard on body days to nights.
