      Pros

      Good group of people to work with day to day. Not by any means a difficult job.

      Cons

      Poor shift Schedule, Union is not that great, they dont fight for what you should have. No work clothes, and they only give you $100 a year for clothes which isnt enough to buy anything of quality to work in. Poor wage for the Job, and management doesn't have a clue how anything runs.

      Lots of opportunity to learn. Pay is fantastic compared to other local companies.

      Pros

      Good money, good colleagues, essential business

      Cons

      Supervisors should not be hiding information from company management about the conditions at the Goderich Mine. Supervisors should not walk away from problems that were reported to company management and recorded in the maintenance log book. The union should not interfere in engineering decisions if they have no relevant technical education and experience.
