I have been working at Johns Manville full-time (More than 10 years)
There is a lot of growth potential here, but you have to fight hard for it. Employees are encouraged to learn all aspects of the business and get exposure to everything. Compensation and benefits are well thought out and generous. The recently renovated work space is inspirational.
If you have a degree in engineering, you can write your ticket at JM - an endless source of frustration for everyone else. In many ways, creativity and innovation a stifled by too much linear thinking. The company is a little old fashioned, but they're working on it. There is "old-guard" leadership at the director level throughout the company, so a lot of "that's how we've always done it" and demanding that up and comers "pay their dues" - totally detrimental to knowledge transfer.
Advice to Management
Give credence to employees with degrees other than engineering. Look for and foster real leaders - not just the loudest. Lead the pack in terms of innovation - green building, etc. Don't just wait for someone else to do it - even if the market isn't ready, it's coming so have a plan on the shelf.

I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Manville (Reno, NV) in September 2015.
This was a phone interview with a maintenance supervisor and engineer. They were both very courteous and professional. However, I didn't bring enough to the table for this opportunity. I was asked some questions on my skills and qualifications. My skill set is more mechanical than electrical.
