I have worked for Joy for over 21 Years and have seen alot of changes, some good some bad but over all its been a good place to work. A typical workday would begin around 630am. I would arrive slightly early begin my day reviewing what had to be done for the day and deciding on how I was going to do it. Most of the day was spent welding and fitting, assisting coworkers , finding parts ,reading prints and conferring with management.
My coworkers came from different backgrounds and different localities around pa. Most were easy to get along with a few were not, but like anything else you take the good with the bad and find away to make your day productive despite any set backs.
The hardest part of my job was waiting for parts which I seemed to happen all the time. The most enjoyable part of my job was problem solving.
Management always had their hands tied else where , which left us doing alot of the problem solving ourseleves.
working with good people
