Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Grundy, VA – July 14, 2017
was an ok place to work, until the Australians bought it then it went down hill and ended up going out of business here and moved to ohio. management in grundy sucked. but the work was good and so was the employes
At a typical workday I would spend most of my shift making cable bolts for mining companies. The co-workers were easy to get along with as well as management. The hardest part of the job was the repetitiveness. The most enjoyable was working the day shift hours.
Working the Forklift was a great experience for me. I enjoyed working with other employees too.
Laborer/Helper (Former Employee) – Marion, IL – November 24, 2013
I had one bad day at work and was aggravated, but moved away from the situation to cool down and get my head in order. Having a job is important for me because I can't always depend on my parents to pay my way through life. I got along with everyone. We did our job and had fun too. The hardest part was learning how to work the forklift. Being away from home so I didn't have to hear my dad gripe at me.
Lunch and break time makes me relax to finish the rest of the day
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Proctorville, OH – January 18, 2013
In the summer a typical day at work is a lot of sweat, lots of water and gatorade. In the winter, depending on your job, it is more sweat, but walking into the cold for breaks to get to the break room.
I learned a lot about the process of preparing roof bolts for underground mining.
While I enjoyed working with most of my co-workers, I found that management left a bit to be desired. I found that consistency in enforcing company policies was seriously lacking, and communication was pretty bad.
The hardest part of my job was the job itself. It was hard work from start to finish.
The most enjoyable part of my job was the end of the day, looking back to realize that although the work was hard, what was accomplished was pretty cool.
decent pay, excellent benefits package.
poor communication, management appears to lack knowledge of the processes, and inconsistencies in enforcing company policies
