Now hiring.

It’s an unfamiliar phrase to many Iron Rangers, especially those in the Hoyt Lakes area. But that could change with PolyMet Mining jobs created through its proposed $500-million copper-nickel mine, currently in the late stages of environmental review, which forms the basis for the permitting process.

The project is also expected to generate around 600 indirect, or related, jobs. In fact, construction alone will require 2 million hours of labor – that’s the same amount of time that went into building Target Field.

A positive place to work

PolyMet employees will work in a safe and friendly environment that challenges individual strengths and rewards achievements. In addition to stable, family-sustaining salaries, our employees will receive an excellent benefits package, including health and dental coverage, 401K and paid time off.
