Rock Duster (Former Employee) – Jasper, AL – January 29, 2018
I worked the evening shift from 3 to 11, always get to work at least a half-hour early in order to get geared-up with the self-rescuer, headlamp,hardhat, boots, etc...dropped down the 1100 feet to the '' Bottom " which is the coal seam, then walked about 1000 feet to where the diesel powered rock-dust machine was parked. Would do a pre-shift inspection of the machine, check all the fluids and safety equipment, add fuel, then water for the '' Scrubber '' which filtered out most of the diesel contaminates. Then went about a mile to the rock dust hole to get rock dust forced by air down a 4in pipe from the surface to load the machine, after loading we would go several miles underground to a return course of air to blow the rock dust on the top, sides ( know as ribs ) and bottom to make the coal dust that was coating all these surfaces inert, when finished we would go back to the area where we obtained the equipment and park it and return to the elevator for the ending of the shift. Dragging the 2 inch flexible hose through water and mud was the worst part of the job, the best part was just being with your co-workers, male and female, joking and having fun while doing hard work. Management would mostly just let you know where to dust, then ask how much work was done, knowing that conditions determined how much could actually be done, working underground isn't like any other job because you know the danger is around you at all times so you must really be aware of your surroundings in order to be safe

Like I said, a very professional organization. I felt I was underpaid but to be a staff accountant there you must have your CPA. They are very encouraging about furthering your education and management was great to work for. Overall, it is a great company.
