Crush and Convey Diagnostic Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Safford, AZSeptember 18, 2018
Good place to work with good people. The work schedule was great and management was always willing to work with you for days off. Laid back environment for the most part.

I never wanted to leave my Freeport family!
Senior Oil & Gas Marketing Scheduler (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LASeptember 13, 2018
With the divestiture of the company's oil and gas holdings, my position came to an end. I worked with an incredible group of professionals who became family, not just co-workers. It was a sad day when I parted ways. Management was keen to promote personal growth and saw its employees as its most valuable asset. It was very gratifying to go to work daily knowing that you were going to leave a positive mark on the world.
Pros
Employees treated as most valuable assets.
Cons
Volatility of minerals markets made for some uneasy times.

Safety and Communication is Key
Mechanical Engineer I (Former Employee) –  Silver City, NMSeptember 10, 2018
Every day at work begins with a brief discussion about safety. All work at the mine site is driven by safety and incident prevention. The Company is dedicated, from top to bottom, to making sure everyone returns home from work in one piece.

Engineering work involves both work at the desktop and work at the field. Communication with numerous departments is essential. Every job anywhere starts with a assessment of the task and the area to find and address any hazards.

If you are looking for a balance between desk work and field work with an employer dedicated to the safety of everyone involved, Freeport McMoRan should be a perfect fit for you.

Great Place To Settle Down
X-Ray Operator (Current Employee) –  ChinoSeptember 6, 2018
Its tough work. Not everyone is built for it. Production is the most important thing. Schedules are set in stone. Has some great benefits but it is a working life. Applying for this job should mean that you will be here for the rest of your life and you are comfortable living in a small mining town until you die. Stay away from certain places. Baghdad mine the town is not even a village you will not enjoy living there. Silver City Tyrone mine really small not much there. Chino mine horribly outdated with production over safety. Stay away from crushing and conveying and stay away from the Mill. Also Driving the haul trucks is not that fun you have been warned.
Pros
benefits. good pay. great vacation hours

Working for FMI
Planner II - HDTS (Current Employee) –  Safford, AZSeptember 4, 2018
FMI is a great company to work for. For the most part they care about their employees. Of course there are a few managers that feel the need to micro manage their people. But all in all they are a very competitive and collaborative company. I have enjoyed my 13 years with them.
Pros
160 hours paid vacation can't be beat.
Cons
Micro-managment at its worst.

Great place to work while in operation
Technical Support Coordinator II (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, LAAugust 29, 2018
Management lacked technical knowledge and visibility of remote sites, but other than that the work environment was great until the oil & gas division went out of business. Just to clarify, that is the division I worked in.

Terrible Management
Geomechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Morenci, AZAugust 23, 2018
Management was terrible, HR did nothing to help the situation. I was not even allowed to ask questions on how to do something and I had just started. If I was not an intern, I would have quit on week 3. Boss was verbally abusive and extremely condescending. Absolutely no motivation to show up to work besides getting paid. Such a big company that you are just a number and very replaceable.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Management, lack of communication

Planner 1 (Former Employee) –  Morenci, AZAugust 20, 2018
The job is not bad, but management can be rough. Good old boy mentality in an incredibly small town. If your not liked, then your not liked. Company has good benefits and PTO. Good training program and knowledgeable employee's for most part.
Pros
Pay, Pto, Benefits
Cons
Constant unscheduled OT cutting into family plans

Very strenuous & stressful.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Morenci, AZJuly 30, 2018
Haul truck was like a 3 story building. The 12 hour shifts very tough physically & mentally. The hardest part of the job were the endless hours alone, in the dark on narrow roads. The most enjoyable were the salary & benefits.
Pros
Great pay & benefits.
Cons
Hours unmanageable for the type of work required.

Negative work environment
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Safford, AZ - CASCJuly 25, 2018
I reported numerous issues that were in violation of the company's policies. The investigation that ensued was a joke. Leaders sleeping with hourly employees, HR professional in a relationship with a Sr. Manager. Employees were treated terribly and there was no path to follow to get that corrected.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Zero integrity in the site leadership role or in HR leadership

If you like long hours with decent pay and no advancement-
Mill Tailings Header Operator (Former Employee) –  Bagdad, AZJuly 20, 2018
Yep, this job is for you. If you're a hard worker they'll ask for more and more without any move up other than the yearly Cost Of Living raise. The benefits are top notch and the matching 401k deposits are great but don't go to management with any complaints because you'll just be talked down and told that's just the way it is. This company is stuck wishing that it's people would perform better, but never pay them better. I feel like the performance they demand is off-set by the management that the workers are under. The hours and stress is often made worse by being told that each worker can be replaced within a week by someone off the street. Often, we work may extra shifts with no incentive other than more pay. Advancement and training to move up is slow in coming and only if you have a very good relationship with your supervisor. Overall, its a really good company to use as a stepping stone to get experience in the industrial field. Otherwise, avoid if you're not willing to work long hard hours and many days in succession without time off.

It's all up there.
