Senior Oil & Gas Marketing Scheduler (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – September 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.
Employees treated as most valuable assets.
Volatility of minerals markets made for some uneasy times.
Mechanical Engineer I (Former Employee) – Silver City, NM – September 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.
X-Ray Operator (Current Employee) – Chino – September 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 Chino mine horribly outdated with production over safety.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.
Planner II - HDTS (Current Employee) – Safford, AZ – September 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.
Technical Support Coordinator II (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – August 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.
Geomechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Morenci, AZ – August 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.
Planner 1 (Former Employee) – Morenci, AZ – August 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.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fourchon, LA – August 20, 2018
On a daily basis I would track shipping and receiving of equipment. I would log crew boat hours worked, liquid tank volumes and condition of tanks for scheduled clean out and restoration. I interacted and was manager of 5 dispatchers. We had a very cohesive and positive working relationship.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Morenci, AZ – July 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.
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Safford, AZ - CASC – July 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.
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, AZ – July 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.
