    I worked at Johns Manville part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employees (at least in my division) were given a clear view of what was expected and were provided with the tools, equipment and training to be successful. The company culture places a high value on hard work, and recognize those that give the extra effort.
    Salary was well above average for the industry.

    Cons

    Valuing hard work is at times is at time obsessive. The saying went “If you can’t be bothered to show up in Saturday don’t bother coming in on Sunday. When the work load was high working in the field over the weekend, and putting in evening hours was the norm. Some the best workers burned out and left for jobs that payed less but offered better work - life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your staff is highly motivated and works very hard - consider awarding additional vacations or comp time for all those evenings and weekend they put in.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Johns Manville.

    Interview Details

    Interview process included a screening interview with the JM recruiter. This progressed to a phone interview with the hiring manager, and concluded with an in-person interview on site. The process was fairly lengthy, with little feedback during the process regarding timing.
