Manager (Current Employee) – Penbryn, NJ – July 3, 2018
JM is a great place to work that is focused on core values. It's a company with a lot of history where some plants could improve on communication from the top all the way down to the floor level - an area to improve on. Teams can work collaboratively together even in union settings. JM invests in its people and its processes to safely make products.
Environmental Health and Safety Manager (Current Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – June 22, 2018
All employees are looked after and cared for at this side. Management honestly believes in the statement of safety first. I watched a production line get shutdown to fix an issue rather than try to fix it on the fly like I've seen at other companies.
Very harsh conditions. Pay not inline with experience.
Industrial Electrician (Former Employee) – Winder, GA – June 10, 2018
It is extremely harsh and at time dangerous work environment. Work long hours at times is mandatory. The pay is not in line with the area. You will advance, but it is little morethan a title i.e. pqay raise not sufficient.
Management is terrible. HR is rude and unprofessional. You'll only advance if your supervisor likes you. If they don't like you, they'll prepare your evaluations for your exit from the jump. Harassment is not taken seriously especially if the harassment is coming from one of their supervisors.
Good place to work. I needed a change! The plant is in a weird place. We have no plant manager, no safety manager, and no HR manager. The last plant manager walk out because he was tried of being micro managed!
Electrician (Current Employee) – Waterville, OH – May 20, 2018
When I started at Johns Manville, it was a place I thought I would retire from. In the last 2 years, the Waterville complex has taken a drastic downward turn. The Engineer in charge of the Electricians and Mechanics wants to fire you for anything he can. If you do want to work here, watch your back, because they are watching you...
Was a good place to work, but do to new management has really turned out to be horrible place have seen them single out older employees to force them out just a shame could be a good job. Management is against unions
Typical work day was 10 hours long. Training provided for all position. Management ease to approach with issues. Management provides opportunity for advancement. I would highly recommend this company to a family member.
Is by kissing people's butt I guess that's the only way you can stay full time they're not my working hard and showing up everyday to work I will never go back to that place again hopefully other people get better treatment and chance to make a career out of it
Senior Research Engineer (Current Employee) – Littleton, CO – March 28, 2018
Most of my career I've been in groups where I was sheltered from the old culture at JM. They need to modernize if they truly want to be the employer of choice. Their HR department is told what to do by management as opposed to the other way around.
Lots of opportunities
Depending on your manager it can be a toxic environment.
Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – Scottsboro, AL – March 23, 2018
By far the best company I ever worked for. I only resigned due to a long commute. Great benefits, good pay, but the people are what makes it so amazing! Truly a genuine staff who work together for the common goals of the company.
Maintenance and Repair Worker (Former Employee) – Richmond, IN – March 11, 2018
Med/ Dental benefits were not the best nor the worst. Smokers shack was heated for those that smoke. They manufacture blowing wool insulation that was in the air inside the place. Not the cleanest place to work in some areas
