Correctional Industries Supervisor | Kitimat, BC | 9 juill. 2013
Productive and supporting company allowing me the opportunity to complete my Master's of Business Administration degree in Executive Management
Typical industrial working environment with production and safety being number one priority. Work starts at 7:00 am and ends at 7:00 pm with four half hour breaks. During my tenure with Rio Tinto Alcan,
I have learned how to work and manage within a large union environment. In addition, being a heavy industry I have learned to watch out for the safety of my co-workers and my own safety.
The management of Rio Tinto Alcan lists safety as top priority followed by productivity on their agenda. The management is also very supportive and are accommodating to its employees.
Teamwork is very important to get various tasks done and therefore, most co-workers are cooperative and work cohesively.
The most difficult part of the job is working near furnaces on extremely hot days with temperatures exceeding 700 degrees Celsius. In contrast, the best part of the job is being trusted and treated with respect. It makes the employees feel responsible and results in better productivity.
Points positifsRecognition of achievements and employee contribution to safety and productivity.
Points négatifsLong working hours with every alternate weekend off.
Était il y a quelques années une entreprise agréable avec un climat d'équipe et de défis, aujourd'hui, suite aux nombreuses coupures les rôles sont très mal définis, la charge de travaille est impossible à accomplir en 40 hrs (les cadres ne sont pas payés sur l'heure du diner contrairement aux syndiqués). Coupures après coupures il faut toujours en faire plus avec moins sans aucune aide ou formation continue. Chaque semaine une nouvelle démission d'un employer cadre (superviseur et planificateur mécanique entre autre). La transition avec le système SAP à été un échec selon moi et le simple fait de vouloir acheter un boulon est un embuche de plusieurs minutes et celui-ci arrivera 4 semaines plus tard... Nous ne discutons pas beaucoup des salaires mais sans donner de chiffres exacte on voit rapidement qu'il existe des différences majeurs entre nous pour un même poste. Nos dirigeant cherche des solutions mais oublie de revenir aux bases... Personnellement j'aime la région donc je compte rester encore mais je n'ai pas de plan long terme avec cette entreprise.
Points positifsGrande entreprise, ressource externe et projet interessant
when I first started it was June of 1979, we worked 8 hour shifts ,6 days on 2 off and we worked dayshift 7 am -11 pm,afternoons was 3 pm-11 pm and nights was 11 pm-7 am for almost 20 years,Summers were very hot and we had to wear heavy wool protective clothing. Had not much of a family life because it was hard to plan anything being on call for overtime. we never had weekends of for 6 weeks. I did not like that. Coworkers were generally ok,sometimes difficult but you learn to work together when you can.Then we went on 12 hour shifts , I liked that better, hours were 7 am-7 pm for days and 7 pm-7 am for nights. we had every other weekend off. The hardest part of work was working environment it gets extremely hot and humid. The most enjoyable thing was making the most of being there,some of the co workers would organize things like on site get togethers for lunches like pot lucks and everyone would bring something in and we would all share a meal together.
Points positifsGreat pay and benefits
Points négatifswork environment was hot and dusty.
Wornderful environment to work in, learned alot of new skills.
- Data Entry, reconsiling, talking on the phone, ordering railcars, switched being on call every second weekend.
- I gained more experience with Microsoft Office, worked a bit in AccPac, Learned alot about being in a corporation vs. when I worked with a small business.
- I got along very well with all the managment as well as my co-workers
- Hardest part of my job was picking up where the person I was filling in for left off, not having them here to explain certain reports and emails. It was a process but eventually it all works out.
- I enjoyed how involved the corporate office is envolved with our operations, as well as being able to contribute to making improvements in certain aspects of the office.
Points positifspizza lunches, had a great relationship with everyone.
Points négatifslong hours for month end, not being as involved with the hr aspect of the business
Terrible place of employment. Very high turnover in management. Management treats hourly union employees disrespectfully. Extremely stressful place to work. Rio tinto constantly attacks employee benefits. Most managers are hired off the street with zero experience and are clueless. It should be a huge red flag to you that no experienced long term employees want a management position. Locals with many years of experience and knowledge get no respect. Supervisors run this smelter to the ground, it’s often in an emergency state and on the verge of shutting down. Dirty and unhealthy environment full of toxic carcinogens. The only pro is there is a good strong union to protect and stand up for the workers. Do not recommend working here.
good paying job, lots of time for family, very poor management. disrespectful to the exteme with little to no consideration for their employees.
Good pay, lots of family time, pension plan. Unfortunately, like many large companies, people are not a priority. Production over the safety (circumventing safety rules for own purposes) World class smelter my butt. They forget about their people. The plant is definitely not built around people. People are to be exploited and disrespected and there is little chance for moving up not that you want to go into management as you seem to get brain washed when you do become a foreman. No one is willing to stand up for sensibility or the good operators. Doomed to fail.
Points positifsgood pay
Points négatifsdisrespect and poor equipment to complete given tasks
Échange de sécurité avec mon collègue qui me précède discussion des travaux non terminé. aller me vêtir de tout mes (EPI) faire un idée 5 avant de commencer un travail. Prendre des notes clair pour faciliter la continuité.
Prendre contacte avec le contremaitre pour toute autre travaux à éffectuer durant la journée.
Donner un coups de main a mes coéquipiers en travaillant en équipe.
Le plus difficile est de tout planifier car en mécanique ce son plutôt des urgences que des réparation planifié.
Le plus agréable est de travailler en toute sécurité et sans raccourci.
Points positifstemps supplémentaire payer temps 1/2 et temps double aussitôt sortie de notre horaire de travail
Excellent company to work for. Very interesting and challenging work.
Typical day starts by checking and reviewing the work with the project manager. At 11 am there is a daily meeting with the project manager, the design team and upper management. In that meeting you outline your progress and highlight any problems you have or see the potential of developing. After the lunch break you return to your work station and continue with your design activities as per instructions from management and the agreed plan of action.
Points positifsSenior management is very involved in the design process providing instant support when needed.
Points négatifsUnfortunately due to the poor economy they can't offer a permanent position.
Proud To Work And Be A Member of A Group Of This Company.
Every day was a very pleasant day when we were driving to the Gate house.The safety that i was feeling just before I enter the plant and
even at the end of the day.They all kept us safe.
I leaned how to minimize my risks for any accident me and my group of workers.The EHS personal kept us updated daily for any Hazards in all areas.Had to have our eyes open for any slip-trip hazards and any spills around our work place.Most enjoyable part for me was to understand the progress and working in all the areas of the plant meeting new operators and CEO personal daily.
Points positifsBeautiful location, nice people, good total of safety.
Workday starts with a Pre-shift meeting which may include safety items, I was tasked with repairing old equipment often requiring very frequent "Emergency" repairs. Management people under a lot of stress to "just Make Do" until smelter is rebuilt. Co-workers very hardworking and helpful and eager to accomplish assignments in as safe a fashion as possible. The hardest part of the job was doing the same "emergency" time and time again because too much of the machinery was far past its economic service life. The most enjoyable part of the day was the end of shift wrap up meetings.

Une équipe Achats au top
En charge de > 12 sites entre l'Islande et le Cameroun, je me déplace à plus de 50% en France et à l'étranger.
Mon bureau est basé à Paris la Défense mais mes équipes sont présentes sur les sites opérationnels
Donc en général c'est : Départ pour un site en France ou ailleurs de bonne heure le lundi matin et retour le vendredi soir. Il m'arrive de rester le week-end sur place suivant la distance.
L'ordre du jour est très rodé :
- Plan maitre de la direction Achats locale (adéquation de la stratégie Achats avec la stratégie du site)
- Revue des KPI et plans d'amélioration
- Participation à un kaizen ou projet
- Revue plan de développement des équipes locales
- 1 ou 2 MOR
- Echange avec les clients internes critiques
- CRM avec le GM du site
- SRM avec les fournisseurs stratégiques du site ou supplier event
et nous avons traditionnellement un repas d'équipe + activité team building (immersion avec les communautés locales)
En 8 ans, j'ai évolué professionnellement 3 fois.
Embauchée comme Directeur Achats pour un site de 650 personnes et 350 sous-traitants, j'ai rapidement pris la responsabilité des sites français.
Et en 2011, j'ai pris la direction Achats Europe / Afrique.
Jusqu'en 2013, un management du développement très suivi qui m'a permis une belle progression avec beaucoup de challenges notamment sur l'amélioration de la performance industrielle et financière des sites. Avec de beaux succès à la clé avec mes équipes.

I have worked for Rio Tinto almost eight years and delivered many projects successfully. Some projects were very challenging due to many operational staff with personal empires. As a project manager you get to know the traits of many stakeholders across the business and find the best way to get things done. I enjoyed my time with Rio and I have learned so much about the business and the job really developed me too. I have gained enormous experience and were fortunate to meet very senior stakeholders during the time I delivered key projects. In my role as Principle, I was responsible for the governance of the mine operations and expansion projects IT and technology requirements. This was a serious challenge since everyone was trying to do their own thing with little understanding why we try to control things. The governing part was mostly around standardization and cost. My role was to prevent people from spending. It teaches me to learn to work with diverse people and diverse operational areas. I have gained enormous people skills during my time at Rio which was needed to work with a large portfolio and many leaders with a budget that they can spend to get done what they want done. In many areas business rules were completely ignored which is probably a standard thing in a large organization.
My overall rating is only a 3 Star purely because of my knowledge I've gained with my MBA. There are little attention paid to the quality of managers and how they apply succession and a

Working 12 hour shifts 2 days 2 nights ,Working in a team environment operating equipment from the crusher via 17 km of overland conveyors with 4 transfer stations to the stockpiles which have 4 main stacking areas.We have a bucket reclaimer on the North stockpile which reclaims up to 2000tph and a barrel reclaimer on the Southern stockpile which reclaims up to 700tph .Both reclaimers feed the plant either in tandem or solo. We utilise an emergency stockpile which feeds the plant via a dump hopper fed with a 992FEL. My area is also responsible for the Export system which is made up of 3 alumina silos, 1 hydrate silo and 8 export conveyor belts via 7 transfer stations that feed the shiploader.
As a control room operator it is my responsability to manage and monitor all the above systems to achive safe daily production targets write end of shift reports, shiploading reports, log all downtime into the ampla downtime reporting system, relay any relavent information to the operator on the ground, ie blocked chutes ,faults, conveyor offtracks, high temperatures, hatch changes, fault finding, answer phones and dispatch information to all levels of the organisation, Manage the stockpiles and pile numbers as well as Submitting work orders into the system.

Points négatifsmechanical breakdowns, working with old equipment
Disappointing/For Information Technology Resources only
Corporate culture around profit control rather than market share and new products. IT model is offshoring at all cost. In previous life, once did an SAP support job supporting 250 users, Rio's requirement was for around 10k users. This corporation shed a lot of people in the past 10 years so lots of friends got some intermediate manager roles. Result you will likely have to answer to a large number of individuals and spend a lot of time in meetings and yet you must meet deadlines. Rio's IT operation runs around the clock since on all continents. This means you will likely have meeting at odd hours to catch up with Australian and Indian folks. Their business solution was built by Indian low cost junior resources and by so called contractors that for the most part could not get a contractor's job in the current market conditions. User acceptance of the solution can be labelled as spotty. Conclusion, this solution is extremely complex and worthy of a complete rewrite. You can easily expect 6 months before being comfortable with such a custom solution and it does get very frustrating since so much has been Zed. If you happen to be very proficient, you will make lots of friends fast and Office Communicator will drive the number of interruptions through the roof.
All in all mining is in a terrible situation at the moment and this is not a place for the faint of heart. The above reflection might have been influenced by local realities and may not be generalized through

Rio Tinto is an excellent employer offering many hard and soft benefits
It would be difficult to pinpoint a "typical" day because each day was very different. My days consisted of full cycle recruitment from resume review, to desk screens, pre-screen evaluations, salary and benefit discussions, and candidate interviews, assessments, scoring, and evaluation. I also had the opportunity to discuss the benefits of moving to Utah and the benefits of working for Rio Tinto with some of the excellent candidates that were sourced from out of state.
Because of Rio Tinto's safety culture, I adopted some of the safety shares and advice practices into my personal life.
I appreciated the manager of our team, as he listened to all input from the team before moving forward with a decision. In addition, when a team member made a mistake, fingers were never pointed, it was "chalked up" to a learning opportunity. This created an atmosphere of growth and unity.
My team was pulled together as a group of contract workers with no history of working together. It was an amazing opportunity. We worked together like a true team! When the contract concluded, we exchanged our personal contact information to assist each other in job referrals, and to keep in touch.
The hardest part of the job was following "sourcing blitzes" when I was inundated with emails of interest. I found an excellent way to manage the emails by creating a follow-up "script" that I could e-mail out to interested candidates.

Cada dìa es un aprendizaje constante con situaciones nuevas y retos interesantes. Una empresa que me diò la oportunidad de crecer personal y profesionalmente tanto en el àrea de Administraciòn como en Recursos Humanos y Gestiòn de Personas, con una excelente cultura organizacional. La seguridad es un eje primordial para todos los colaboradores, el trabajador es lo màs importante para la empresa. Cultura de puertas abiertas para la comunicaciòn con los lìderes, directorio y gerencia general. Los equipos de cada àrea trabajan con responsabilidad, respeto, integridad y trabajo en equipo.
Dado que el proyecto està situado en la provincia de Chota, Distrito de Querocoto en Cajamarca es un trayecto de difìcil acceso. Es difìcil enfrentar los incidentes que pudieran haber ocurrido con nuestros compañeros.
Hay posibilidad de promociòn sin embargo la estabilidad laboral no es del todo segura. Enfrentamos varias reorganizaciones durante los ùltimos 8 años.
Lo que màs me gustò es la importancia de las pesonas para la empresa, el apoyo constante al trabajador en situaciones de diferente ìndole como el apoyo al crecimiento profesional, el apoyo en situaciones de riesgo a la salud del colaborador o un familiar directo, la evaluaciòn de la seguridad en forma diaria y constante y el empoderamiento al colaborador de parar una actividad en caso de riesgo.
