Luke Kroeker 3 years ago 0.0 Your rating: My wife and I stopped at this mine today. We walked into a nice gift shop and were greeted by very friendly staff. We had just paid our admission when an older gentleman (we later learned that this was the owner) asked me what I did for a living. I work with computers, and this excited the man a lot. He told me that he “wanted to give me a job” and then handed me the debit machine, which he was having trouble setting up. I helped for about 15 minutes, doing basically what I might do at work. During this time the owner was nice (if somewhat demanding) to my wife and I, but we both noticed that he was rude and curt with the two staff present. Afterwards, one of the staff went to ask the owner if they could refund us our admission as payment for the help, and we saw the owner take her aside and get overly upset at her for the suggestion. We had been planning on buying some souvenirs, but couldn’t bring ourselves to do so after such a display – if this is how the owner treats the staff when there are customers watching, we can’t imagine what must happen behind the scenes. He wasn’t that great to us either, getting me to essentially work for 15 minutes without compensation, but by far it was the rudeness and clearly awful work environment that he created that spoiled our time at the mine.
