High energy, warm and friendly environment workplace
Administrative Support (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 14, 2018
A typical day would start 30 to 45 minutes early before business hours, to prepare and ensure the daily vendors and guests were greeted and received with a warm friendly pleasant atmosphere to start their business day with Positive energy. The management team supports the same positive energy which makes my job and the workplace Team oriented.

Throughout the day I completed various administrative duties with multiple departments, increasing daily productivity companywide. On high volume days with clients and vendors -increases the work responsibility which calls for multi-tasking and prioritizing to save the day.

The enjoyable part of the job was through strong customer service, developed relationships were maintained and retained for repeat business with the company over the years.
Pros
Free lunches and breakfast daily, meeting people, and great benefits
Cons
Downtown parking

Always pushing for production , then safety.
Mill Operator2 (Current Employee) –  Morenci, AZJuly 12, 2018
Love working here it takes care of all my family members. Love working with people, love training people but in morenci I think they lack on training , they don't let you work on equipment they you work with. They don't let operators due their job they are always telling you how to run tour equipment, and supervisor can't make no decisions they have to ask upper management if you are on shift you should make that decisions wether it's wrong or right you have to make an executive decisions . The supervisors have a lot of favoritism, they arw5 not equally fair to all employees.
Cons
Good health care, nice breaks, lack of training people right.

great place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sierrita, AZJuly 10, 2018
Sieritta Mine, if you love the mine you will enjoy working there. It is a little poorly managed in the Planning Department, if it was better managed in that area it would be a great department. Overall, Sierrita is a great place for retirement.
Pros
great benefits, great pay absoltely
Cons
poor management in Planning department

An ok place to work
Mine Engineer (Former Employee) –  Morenci, AZJuly 6, 2018
take it if you have no option. Good for a career starter but look elsewhere for career advancement if you are competitive and care about your career. Not the best of job culture and management style. Pretty archaic

Productive, busy place to work
Arizona- Support Equipment Operator I (Current Employee) –  Bagdad, AZJuly 1, 2018
Great team leaders. Company offers great benefits. Company housing is very convenient due to it being in a rural area. Kept busy all day which makes the days go by fast. Working 3 days a week on average but making money that someone would make in a 50+ hour work week.
Pros
Benefits are great

Productive and Marcomanaging style of leadership
Operations and Quality Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 26, 2018
The Upper Level Management was setup as an Marcomanaging style management. Which allowed me to have a relaxed work environment. This style of upper management would assign project then let you work without question until you present the finished project.
Pros
Free lunch relaxed work schedule
Cons
High profile projects long hours high stress

Production comes first
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Morenci, AZJune 12, 2018
Normal work days include line out, along with a safety conversations. I learned a lot about different types of ore extraction and procedures. Unfortunately i have nothing to say about management. Culture is ok. the hardest part of the job is getting upper management to allow you to do your job. I enjoyed training my personal to be the best they could be with a lot of care and building a great foundation.

Not a team enviroment.
Sr. Buyer (Former Employee) –  Norwich, CTMay 22, 2018
I really enjoyed my job. It was the management that sided with one over the other. It became a very depressing and dark place to work. If one person didn't like the other, it became " Lord of the Flies" leadership.
Pros
Great Job experiance, learned a lot.
Cons
Completely almost no communication. If your not in the click, your gone no matter how hard you work!

Very Industrial environment
Instrument Technician/Diagnostic Electrician (Former Employee) –  Morenci, AZApril 27, 2018
Mining is not for the faint of heart. It is a very dangerous and challenging environment. Production is above all else. Pay is excellent but would not recommend this company unless you have experience in an industrial setting

Long Hours, Low Development
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bagdad, AZApril 23, 2018
Work place is unique in regards to engineering challenges, like buckling and dynamic loading. Unfortunately the development of engineers in-house is limited to more of a project manager. I feel that this place hurts the development of engineers and focuses on project management. This is shown in the fact that P.E.'s are not required for senior engineers with new engineers to work under. This then slows the development of the new engineers.
Pros
Safety Culture
Cons
Long Hours
