Probably the most laid back factory job I’ve ever had
Electrician (Current Employee) – Lebanon, KY – February 8, 2019
I’ve been employed by joy mining/komatsu for 14 years. When I started, I was a mechanic, I was trained by other mechanics that had been there several month before me. Basically I’ve been there from the start of joy mining, lebanon. I was getting paid 12.00, give or take, in 2005. It’s now 2019 and I’ve completed an electrical apprenticeship. I’m now getting paid 22.95. Basically I’ve received .78 cents a year. Not bad, but not great if you include the ever increasing health insurance and cost of living. Compared to other factory’s in my area, electricians are making 30.00 plus dollars an hour. Overall, management doesn’t know what they are doing. Thus, falls upon peon employees to make up for their short comes. Meaning meaningless overtime for the employees.
Great characters to work with
Never ending overtime, up until market crashes and your laid offf
