Underground coal miner (Current Employee) – Waynesburg, PA 15370 – July 24, 2018
decent place to work, it pays the bills, but you never see your friends and family, you work 7 days a week all year round with little time off. you get treated horribly, your bosses are awful, and your coworkers act like they're five years old. I don't go to work to put up with it and have to baby sit. would not recommend, only good for your time needed. no healthcare, 5 days vacation after you have been with the company after a year, no sick time, fmla, and the worst part is the company makes more money off of you working than you get paid.
constant hours and decent pay
you live at work and have nothing to show for it with no benefits

Terrible pay, terrible benefits, terrible communication, terrible and inconsistent hours, and terrible work/life balance. The only plus about this company is they'll hire anyone, so you can get your foot in the door, if they actually have you work at all. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

GMS is a great place to work. It is fast pace and your are given the opportunity to better yourself. Very proud to work at GMS. I would recommend this company to anyone that wants to better there career.
GMS is a VERY untruthful company. what they advertise and what you actually receive are two different agendas. They bend the truth when in reality you can NEVER make the amount of money that they claim.

Only thing I really have to say is that it's a great place to learn the about the coal mine . Pays should be better for what they ask for us to do . You can learn great deal if you get lucky and work with someone that once was hired on some coal mine.

Labor intense to kicking rocks , best way to advance is to start in your early 20's because of the timing/schooling it takes to get your certifications. This is a contracting company best advise is to get your black hat and get hired on company.
