When I started the office was a start-up and coal bed methane drilling was a new and innovative extraction technology.
We worked hard and became like a family. I miss wokring for the team I worked with.
I enjoyed my internship everyday. The employees are kind and helpful when new people arrive. I worked on many different types of projects that helped be better understand the company. My work was appreciated and feedback was frequently given to keep me on the right path.
CPKelco. San Diego is not a bad place to work.the problem comes from management. The most corrupt people I had the displeasure of knowing, they lie and make false promises to you so that you fall into their web of deceit. Beware of HR and those who can’t look you in the eye when speaking to you!!
Dusty environment but tons of money is being spend to on safty and lower the amount of dust in the air. You can wear a respirator but it is only required in one building. The dust levels are low in most parts of the plant. You sweep every shift.
Pay, benefits, fantastic work culture, profit sharing
Can be a great place to work. Overnight is difficult but day shift is very enjoyable. They deal with many conveyors and auger troughs. There is a high concentration of silca dust so can be potentially hazardous.
JM Huber has a great working culture, unfortunately it is too good. They have high retention which limits opportunities for upward mobility. Would re-consider working at JM Huber if young and looking to move up in a Company.
The company removed rock from an underground mine. Then grind the rock down to a powder which was then packaged and loaded onto rail cars and trucks to ship to customers. I have worked in all areas of the mine from underground miner running heavy equipment to above ground running the milling process. We worked 12 hour shifts. I learned to run most of the equipment at the mine site and enjoyed working by myself running the mills I was responsible for but also helping and working with others when it was called for.
Most enjoyable part of the job was everyday the seem to be something different going on and no two job task were the same..
Hardest part of the jobs were working outside in all weather conditions.
I worked with a great staff. Senior management however, was always in a stage of flux, which made it difficult for middle management to operate effectively. I was a member of middle management and it sometimes made my ability to function difficult due to the constant changes of who I reported to. Often times, those to whom I reported were clueless as to what were the job responsibilities of myself or my staff.
Company did not favor any kind of working remotely.
