John Munro Longyear, Sr. (April 15, 1850 – May 28, 1922) was an American businessman and noted developer of timber and mineral lands in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan who became the central figure behind the Arctic Coal Company, which surveyed and mined coalfields on Spitsbergen, now Svalbard, from 1905 to 1916. This company developed a settlement on Spitsbergen able to accommodate up to around 500 people which became known as Longyear City, now Longyearbyen, adjacent Advent Bay.

Drillers Offsider (Former Employee) says

"Would never recommend for anyone to work at this company. Extremely unprofessional underpaid. Management hiring and firing tactics are on point. You will regret working for this company."

Sample Catcher (Former Employee) says

"Not worth working for them when all is said and done there is a reason why this company can't hold onto employees the pay scale is trash the task training you'll receive will probably be sub -par expect to be thrown under the bus by the driller / lead to make their life easier Cons: You live at work visit home sometimes"

Driller Helper (Former Employee) says

"Management is horrible. H.R. is horrible. The drillers are horrible. No one at this company has your best interest at heart, they don't care about their employees and will fire you on stupid grounds. They will also take your last paycheck from you if you haven't worked over four months with them. I had to go through the labor board to get my last paycheck from them."

Driller Assistant (Former Employee) says

"Would give zero stars if possible. Was given a job and told to quit the job I had at the time, completed all training and requirements only to be let go without reason before I could even start."

Heavy Equipment Operator/Drillers Assistant (Former Employee) says

"Working here is great, but you are away from home a very large portion and if you put that you are available you can and most likely have to move residency to the mine in which they station you. Its not a great place if you have a family to take care of."

Payroll Assistant (Former Employee) says

"Did not explain or justify hiring method! Fired employees in the office enviorment or forced them to leave with unjust and racist acts. Cons: non-equality employer"

Senior Accountant (Former Employee) says

"I honestly learned a lot from working at Boart and I even enjoyed my job at first. But by the time I left it was too stressful and I didn't feel I was compensated fairly for the time and work I was putting in. Upper management didn't care and while some managers would listen, they weren't able to do anything to help or just didn't care to try and help. The company was not run well when the economy was good and as a result when the economy went down, Boart went with it, hard. Mass layoffs resulted in one person having to do multiple people's jobs and being expected to still complete it all in the same time frame. As an employee I did not feel appreciated. Cons: No support from management, no appreciation"

Driller Assistant (Former Employee) says

"You make decent money if you can deal with getting bullied by other employees ( Driller and driller helper ) Cons: You will get bullied and harassed on a daily basis."

Quality Control Officer (Former Employee) says

"The closed forrestfield (WA) office was ruled by one south Asian nationality. others will not simply survive there. Options are that you either join them or suffer and be gone. Cons: Every negative thing that co-operate environment can offer."

Accounting (Current Employee) says

"Poor management and no career progression. Once hired for a position, you have no chance of getting promoted. Moral is poor and most people are looking to leave. I have wasted too much time waiting for them to figure out how to run a successful business. Cons: Management doesn't care enough to know what you do each day."

Driller Assistant (Former Employee) says

"A typical day working for boart is at least 14 hours most likely 16. At the kennakott mine there was supposed to be three employees on site. But One driller would work a week while his brother also a driller would take a week off and have the other driller clock him in all 92 hours that week. They would switch off leaving the assistant doing all the work. Management does not support newer employees. Good pay just because overtime. NO work life balance at all. Cons: No breaks, underpaid for duites no support from managment"

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) says

"I worked for this company for 3 years at a branch in a small town. Management was sorely underqualified. Two managers acted inappropriately while "on the clock" and broke up 2 marriages as a result... meanwhile the corporate office knew and looked the other way. So, what the rest of us saw was special treatment towards one person, while the rest of us didn't get raises, were worked half to death, and were grossly underappreciated. Cons: high health care premiums, few in-network providers, poor management, low pay"

not entry level - dont want to say (Former Employee) says

"Good company ONLY if you are a driller or a helper. Otherwise you should pass. No job security at all. Laid off 2500 people in the last year and kept some that made no sense at all. Do a web search and see for yourself."

Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) says

"0 on the job training, the people that work there all fight with each other and are constantly stressed out, can’t ask questions without getting yelled at, very disorganized. All in all a very chaotic and stressful work environment. Wouldn’t answer questions when I asked how to do something and then got yelled at for doing it wrong all the time. Cons: Everything else"

Assistant Driller (Former Employee) says

"Ok pay. Very dangerous line of work. You have to be able to teach yourself by watching. Get use to been away 20 days with 5 days off. 16 hour days. Trust your driller if not you gonna get hurt. Company needs better training and safety, I recommend this for hard working felons who love near death experience."

Field Mechanic- Technician (Former Employee) says

"I seen some really grade school mentallity. Bullying, ridicule, and belittlement is all that shop has, NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY will ever be as good as the leaders. Pathetic, and lacks proper etiquette IN EVERY ASPECT of a leader. Its rather sad. Anyone with equal, or MORE experience doesn't stand a chance. SAD, for such a worldwide company!"

Labourer/Equipment Operator (Former Employee) says

"Definitely didn't have a good experience here. Got a Repetitive strain from doing the same thing over and over each day with drilling. Supervisors and management treated me poorly. till I quite my job. (there is no standing around with this job) Cons: didn't have any work breaks"

Assistant Driller (Former Employee) says

"Drove heavy equipment through the mines and with heavy equipment traffic. Handled 200-40 ft. long rods and core sample tubes, boxing the core samples."

Driller (Former Employee) says

"The company promotion goes to the one that chews the most crayons an is the biggest yes man Cons: Exactly that the company is a con"

Driller Helper (Former Employee) says

"Where to start with this company. They don’t care about new employees and are only focused on their drillers and profits. 20 days on 10 days off but no rest days. Working almost 14 hours a day for 20 days is strenuous on the body especially when you barely get six hours of sleep. No job security if you question what they do & how they do it you’ll be punished because of it. had me working 12 hours a day for two weeks straight with no days off I could barely wake up and walking yet they still wanted me to work the long hours I understand you’re not required to give your employees a day off in that amount of time but good practices to make sure you’re better"
