Plant Operative (Current Employee) - Bugle - 24 February 2020
Blokes on the ground are smashing, most managers don't have a clue. treat people like dirt. Difference in pay grades between older guys and younger guys creates a lot of tension as the younger ones are expected to do more
Great place to work if you live with parents or have no children. Bullying atmosphere acceped as the norm by management, pressured to take holiday when it suits them. denied holiday when you need the time off as "your not the only person who wants that day off" When you can see the diary is empty. (higher management are told by lower management that everything is running fine in our department) when they know the issues and do what they can to hide it.
Imerys is all about the people. The company is going through large changes right now but the people who work for Imerys are supportive and positive. I learnt alot about engineering and as their system is unique I learnt alot about mining
I was well trained in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical maintenance, Plumbing, Welding, the using of chemicals, First Aid, working with mobile cranes, slinging and lifting, manual handling and working in confined spaces.
Hose Operator (Former Employee) - St. Austell - 30 December 2016
Brilliant company to work for. shame it was only temporary. Would of enjoyed the stability of the job to become permanent but no one was sure it would be. So had to make the decision to leave for more job stability.
Interesting and enjoyable job in a company that has a good culture. The environment is generally relaxed and positive, leading to good productivity. Although large amounts of international travel is common. However, a huge downside is that advancement is heavily weighted towards French nationals - senior management is almost exclusively French, leading to a clear glass ceiling. One that appears to be lowering by the year.
Electrical and engineering in laying electrical cables and preparing them to be fitted for switchgear. Tried to start up a diesel powered generator but found out that it had run out of diesel. Observed an employee wiring up a control panel for a jet engine.
This period was spent being introduced to working in a major employer involved in mining operations in Cornwall. The opportunity to work here gave me experience of working in both an office environment, and in heavy industry.
