SUPERIOR, Ariz., Jan. 28, 2014 – Resolution Copper Mining is beginning a Worker Trainee Program as part of its commitment to develop local employment opportunities. To launch the program, the company is offering three trainee positions that will last six months and pay $15 per hour. One position is in the mine’s water treatment plant, a second is in core-handling operations, and a third is in Resolution Copper’s administration offices.

The water treatment plant trainee will gain an understanding of water treatment operations and design, learn water laboratory best practices, and acquire basic data analysis skills. The core-handler trainee will be certified in forklift operation, gain warehousing experience, and learn how to work with tools such as grinders, saws and scrubbers. The administrative trainee will work with Microsoft Office programs, learn letter writing and formatting, gain filing skills, and work as an office receptionist.

“Our objective is to provide trainees with skills needed to succeed in a modern workplace setting,” said Andrew Taplin, project director for Resolution Copper. “Beyond the job-specific skills, trainees will learn techniques for resume writing and job interviews, workplace etiquette and ethics, communication skills, and the ability to be flexible and adaptable on the job.”

Acceptance into the program is not an offer of permanent employment. To be considered for the program, an applicant must be at least 18 years old, have a high school diploma or a GED certificate, and have a valid Arizona driver’s license. Before final acceptance, selected applicants are required to undergo a background check, a physical fitness test, and drug and alcohol screening. Trainees also will undergo safety training as required by the Mine Safety and Health Administration.

Applicants can email resumes to Monica.Denogean@resolutioncopper.com or apply in person at Resolution Copper’s office at 402 W. Main St. in Superior. More information is available by calling 520.689.9374.
