Very Productive and Stressed the meaning of safety
Summer Intern/Laborer (Former Employee), Kearny, AzJuly 15, 2014
Pros: polite, nice people, good company overall
Cons: the heat
Being at the mine during the summer gets very hot because most of the work there is done outside. It is hard labor but it is never boring or unpleasant. Most of the buildings are open and there is not a lot of closed air conditioning. The conditions there are very dangerous but the company is very keen on safety and train people very well in a nice environment. Co-workers are nice and welcoming. They were always willing to help me if I didn't know certain things about my job and would always help me to get better. They are also very polite. The hardest part of the job was the heat but my supervisor and co-workers always made sure I had water on hand if I needed to take a break it was never a problem. The most enjoyable part is being able to be around machines and experiencing the work of a lab technician. It was all very interesting and fascinating.

many challenges as work was quite diverse as far as knowlege required
Master Electrician (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJune 3, 2014
Pros: job security, challenging
Cons: extremely hot and dusty
Management was not knowledgeable at all as far as what was required to complete a job. Many of the workers were totally incompetent and no one was held responsible. A true craftsman should be proud of his work but most did not care. It was a real bad environment to stay motivated to do your best.

decent pay and benifits. Management is rookie
Pipefitter/Welder (Current Employee), Hayden, AZFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: medical benefits
Cons: poor management
Overall the pay and benefits are good. It's a typical maintenance job, and I like the guys I work with. Management is on the friends and family plan and have very poor relations with the employees. If this company would run this business like a business instead of a charity for managements' family members it would be great.

Loud and Noisy...
Mill Worker Helper (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJanuary 10, 2014
Always something different to do everyday. Coworkers are very affable. Management doesn't care about any feedback from newbies. Make sure you always have your PTE on. Work OT when requested and especially within the first 90 days... which is the probationary period...and be on time Lombardi time! 15 minutes early...

Great job, excellent benefits.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXAugust 22, 2012
Pros: excellant benifits
Asarco is a very good company to work for. I was given the opportunity to advance from a general laborer to a machine operator, overseeing the processing of raw copper and the cleaning and processing of pure copper. The co-workers made a great atmosphere to work and the strict safety procedures led to a peace of mind. The main downside was extream heat conditions, however even that was dealt with by the company as well as possible.
