Material handler, Welder (Former Employee) –  Franklin, PAJune 21, 2017
The work was fun and entertaining , co-workers all got along and love the mining machine , and the heavy moving of parts through the shop. Didn't have to worry about what to do , just do what ever it takes to get the job done.

little to no advancement opportunities
CNC Machinist (Current Employee) –  Franklin, PAJune 5, 2017
Although the pay is good, you hit a dead end fast. when you reach the top of the union negotiated pay scale, you're done. Additionally, there are absolutely no tracks for an hourly worker to advance into management, regardless of his/her education or work ethic.
Pros
good pay
Cons
good work ethic is not rewarded

Joy Global was the best place I have ever worked. Due to changing markets and slow economy, I was laid off. If not for that I would most likely still be working there.

Site Quality Manager (Current Employee) –  Longview, TXMay 8, 2017
Joy Global was a great place to work and offered a lot of opportunity. Due to the decline in the mining sector the future was a bit shaky, As well as the sale of the Steel Mill and the entire Company.

Downhill Business
Manager (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaMarch 23, 2017
Retrograde thinking and very poor people skills. They don't have progressive culture required for growth. Poor understanding of business and maintaining relations with customers and employees.

Current employee (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 21, 2017
Joy Global takes care of their employees, and you won't be over worked. The opportunities for grown and advancement are a bit limited. The company's global presence and decentralized management structure makes changes difficult to implement.
Pros
Work Life Ballance

Product Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHFebruary 6, 2017
Travel the world, meet interesting people.
Lots of former military working out in the field with a can-do spirit and a commitment to excellence. You will go thru a few pairs of steel toe boots and you can be afraid to get dirty.
