Overall Reviews at Rio Tinto

3.0
Rio Tinto Site Safety Representative - Koodaideri Rail Project | Perth WA | 26 Feb 2020
A challenging role but something that I enjoyed doing
The challenges of driving a major project through an EPCM proved frustrating, with a lack of accountability across the project causing frustrations and a lack of job satisfaction. The root of the problem lay within the EPCM management team coupled with a soft RTIO management approach.

Superintendent | Pannawonica WA | 16 Feb 2020
Great environment if you want to achieve results
Be ready for the challenges that exist in any large organization. Very driven organization to succeed and include diversity with people. Great personal development opportunities and you'll work with some of the best and brightest in the mining industry. A great place to learn and grow as a result.
ProsGreat perks. Allowances health care, employee share scheme, bonus
ConsCan be politically challenging with more senior roles

No
Purple circle, boss’s bully , bosses put their mates on. Intimidating culture with supervisors. No empathy. No chance of moving up with bosses mates on crew

Plant Superintendent | Tom Price WA | 5 Feb 2017
Maradoo was the best
Maradoo was the best place to work for so many years, the team was energetic and proactive. We grew with an expansion into wet plant and below water table mining while i was there and the new members of the team became a core part of the site.

Equipment Maintenance Technician | Tom Price WA | 28 Jul 2016
Exciting challenge with the opportunity to inject and add value to the business
Developing, understanding, and implementing robust systems ensuring part availability for production operation for the business was exciting and challenging. Love building relationships and networking, providing and or inputting constructive ideas to staff. Love working with people and overall management and co-workers were great Loved identifying, planning, and implementing developments in order to close gaps, cost saving to the business unit. The hardest part of the job was the management of staff personalities rather than the actual job. Love a good challenge. To know I put systems in place for anyone to be able to pick up and know what to do in my absence was a great feeling. Saving the company a ton of money was the icing on the cake. Great feeling.
ProsGreat benefits and management very supportive to the voluntary work I did.
ConsWould like to have done rostered duties rather than 5 & 2. For e.g. 14 days on 14 days off.

Senior Field Supervisor | Pilbara WA | 10 Jun 2015
Exciting forever changing workplace. Where good friendships are made.
12 hour work day, with varying activities. Including, data entry, inspections, training, auditing, collecting drill samples, driving, trucks and machinery and processing core samples. Just to name a few. Gained a lot of new qualifications while working there. A place where good friendships can be made. The worst part about the job was spending more than half the year away from home. The best part about the job was getting out into the remote outdoors, seeing some beautiful country, and the benefits that go with a miners salary.
ProsGood pay, food supplied, fun job, lost of training and education
ConsLots of travel to and from work, being away from my family. Long hours.

Apprentice Electrician | Nhulunbuy NT | 21 Dec 2013
Safety oriented company with great training opportunities
Rio Tinto provided a safe work environment with an abundance of training opportunities. I was provided with an enjoyable workplace and a large variety of different work with the only downside being the constant lack of job security due to the market situation and low alumina price
ProsTraining, safety
ConsJob security

Great benefits, but the job security is not great

Maintenance Supervisor | Boron, CA | 21 Mar 2017
Fast paced heavy industrial environment
Has been a great company to advance in my career for over 18 years; it has been challenging, fun for the most part and taught me a lot about working for a world class mining company. The people I have worked with over the course of my career is the most enjoyable part of the job and the work as there are many directions you can go in Rio Tinto.
Pros4 day work week with 4 weeks vacation and holidays-good benifits
ConsMine is in the middle of nowhere and its a commute to get there

Reliability Engineer | Washington State | 16 Dec 2015
Great company, amazing people, friendly all around.
A wonderful company that is very much people oriented. The focus on people goes beyond the words, and reflects in the culture every single day. My years here have been nothing but fun. Good pay for the role you do, and enough flexibility to make you feel cared for. Not much structure for a new person to gain varied experience, especially for a grad. You start in one position and unless you fight your way out, chances of an easy transition into another department or commodity are slim. BHP does this part much better, but Rio does have a much better focus at keeping its people happy.
