    Pros

    Intelligent people and interesting problems. Good compensation and opportunities to move up in the company with good performance. And there is free food.

    Cons

    It is not a very team-oriented environment, most people work individually. Communication can be difficult because of the individual nature of the environment.

    I worked at Potashcorp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Pay, Bonus, unionized, unique work environment. The company is keen on people who show initiative and they promote from within. PCS Lanigan has a much better shift schedule than that of the competition.

    Cons

    Regular lay-offs make work stability difficult to count on. In the time i was there i was layed off for a month with another one coming just before i quit. The culture is overall negative, and the mining crowd can tend to be gruff and tough. Developing a thick skin is essential!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safety First. This industry has a lot of liabilities set against it, and if you are found neglegant in the way you lead your crews, you could be faced criminally responsible under the Mining Regulations and OH&S
