Good company to work for

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good company, I worked for them for 23 plus years before the merge between Newmont and Barrick in Elko Nevada. They made you feel like family did a lot for the community


Listen to their employees and respected them


Merged with Barrick

Sense of belonging. Bosses always micromanaging you

Good pay and benefits, your job is always on the line. Bosses lie to get bonuses.always being watched. Felt like job vould be easily replaced if you disnt fit in or do the job they wanted you to do even though it wasnt your job.


Good co woworkers

Certian clicks that if you dont fit in they make it dificult to work there (highschool drama)

High-school drama. The days off are nice but the almost stretch it to long so you don't want to come back to work. And the MTC scholarship is wonderful for the students at the college. It's a good program just alot of entitled employees running around out there.


Good money, 5 days on 4 days off.


Short breaks, crotchity old men, 12 hour days

Favoritism rules Supreme here

They bring in staffing company guys just to use them up and make false promises, bad work environment, especially with management, only really hire family and friends for the permanent positions

Summer temp job

Work was hard, but other summer students made it worth it. I did not like the lottery system they used to choose summer students. Most supervisors were great, others were not. If you have respect for others, most likely it will be returned. I enjoyed my summer, and would recommend it.


Temp summer job


Some people were difficult to work with

Is one of the good company everyone should gave the opportunity to work with.

Is good if you work with Newmont it self than working sub-contractor company. Because the contractor's dose not take good care with the workers and also pay less salary to employees.


Good food


Improvement on health care

Bad work environment

Management is a joke, plays favorites and pushes everyone to be against each other, no one is there to help you, management just ambushes you daily. I wouldn't work there until management is corrected

Great Crews/Terrible Management

Great crews to work with, the management is rife with nepotism. During my interview I asked about the work culture, they said they are trying to change it. However, the lower level/mid-management is very oblivious to behaviors that contribute to worker dissatisfaction and high turnover in the weld group. They don't tell you they want someone who is a mechanic. They expect you to have your own tools for working on the mine trucks. I didn't know this until after I started.

Great benefits management is horrible

Spent many years working for this company, once was considered the company to be at. Now horrible management has driven away most of the good folks. It's a shame you have to walk around and wonder who's about to stab you in the back! They preach work-life-balance and then send you off to a site for months with travel on weekends on YOUR time. Where's the balance?


Great Benefits

Great benefits, local management lacking

Newmont health and investment benefits are the best I've encountered in 20 years of working experience. The local management team is very "good old boys" with many people being advanced because of who they know.


Great benefits


Rigid work schedule, poor middle management

Great Organization

I was only with the company for 2 years but I really enjoyed the work I did in the Business Excellence division. Unfortunately I got laid off with 300 others.


Great professional growth opportunities

Union job so it is pretty good benefits and pay but good luck having a positive attitude at work all management thinks they have to prove there job daily by writing hourly employees up


Great pay/ Benefits

Underground Miner

I thoroughly enjoyed working for Newmont. The pay is excellent and I liked what I did. The benefits were very good and I also liked the work schedule. The mining schedules have a lot of built-in days off.

Terrible Manager

Not enough work in my department while other departments were flooded. Manager was terrible, first time managing an employee and it showed. Company pays above market.

Well-run company with a long record of success

The people that make up Newmont are truly the company's competitive advantage globally. Lots of room to advance, learn new things, and contribute in a meaningful way.
