Some days are better than others. Work can get intense some days, but other days go by smoothly and I feel I can get work done and work on projects. Managers work to ensure you can develop your skills through annual rotations to get an overall feel for the position. Very happy with where I am.
Pros
Benefits, salary, management
Cons
Days can be long, a lot of moving pieces

You only get somewhere if you are a good butt kisser or have a relative in upper management. I have more education and more experience then my management team and could not get promoted due to not having the right last name and not kissing the right bitt.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
The rest

Great pay, fun job.The shift work is fun, more pay on nights than on days. They 401k match and you have tons of days off, 14 off a month. You never know what to expect coming back from days off
Pros
small town
Cons
housing is scarce

I think the company is great overall. If you have a degree there is alot of ways for advancement. If you do not have a degree it seems you are overlooked and undervalued. Some supervisors can be great but most are Subpar. They only care about salaried employees and if you are not salaried then they could care less about you. When a furlough happens they will weed out the employees who have a voice. They will keep the "YES MEN".
Pros
Good pay, benefits, and set schedules.
Cons
Management, No Advancement for non salaried employees

Great company, some talk of safety then turn a blind eye, not Freeport, they will hold you to it. Room to advance within. Overall top notch. Best company I've worked for in 20 years.
Pros
Fair, straight forward, safety positive.

They target the new guys and gals. The older experience workers there can do what they want to your career. Your expected to keep your mouth shut everyday because of your status.
Pros
The danger signs are less missleading.
Cons
They interpret "Emoyment at Will" as an ok for wrongful termination.

The management of the company is very poorly regulated and they have huge power and disregard safety and company rules. The health plans and retirement are incredible though. Very cheap employees contribution for the health plan and excellent retirement matching only when the market is good. Company basis its pay and budget solely on market conditions.
Pros
Excellent health coverage and amazing retirement benefits
Cons
Older management, greedy company executives

Operating a haul truck it’s slides it’s difficult to keep on the dirt road feel like every time operating it I’m going to hurt someone. 75% of the time the automatic retarder is out so you have to use the retarder to slow down then the back of the truck feels like it’s going to come out from under you I have anxiety now
Pros
7 days off in a row
Cons
Long work week 3 days off 1 3 nights

Safety was the number one concern with this company. They make sure you are well trained before you start. I went through a month and a half of classes before I even stepped on site. You’re definitely not going to be thrown to the wolves. They invest in you and want to see you succeed.
Pros
Great pay and benefits. Lots of overtime if you want it.
Cons
Dangerous area. Very stinky, hot, and dirty.

Great place for the most part. But the hours are pretty inflexible, but that is made up for with the generous vacation time. 401k matching is good. Bonuses are hit or miss.
