  1. "Light at the end of the tunnel"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Goderich Mine Employee 

    I have been working at Compass Minerals full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Goderich is a nice place to live and work ,pay is good and for the most part have really enjoyed working here until the past few years.

    Cons

    Company is being micro managed by a leadership group who won't take responsibility for their poor planning and choice's that took this company from being highly productive to barely getting by on a daily basis. They treat their staff terribly and are currently using scab labour to run a mine with untrained people and risking lives instead of working on a contract with their unionized workforce for whom the have put out on strike with unrealistic contract demands.
