It was an employee of Minco but not at accident. He had a heart condition and was flown to the hospital to have a stint put in. Please pray for him and his family. He is a great guy that has always talked to me and everyone else. Oh and Greenville Goblin we do have a dangerous work environment but we have put lots of procedures and equipment in place to help ensure that our guys are safe.

Theres three of those "dust holes" in this area, not much of a retirement plan in any of them if you know what I mean.

On the contrary O wise one. CE Minerals pays $17.00+ an hour plus they are unionized by the steelworkers which contributes a very good 401k.

Agreed, I spent nearly a year in Minco. I don't care who comes on here and defends the work environment. The head of HR, Mike, referred to DTR as a hospital when comparing it to Minco. He could not have been any more sincere.

Well Greeneville Goblin, I can probably tell you why you didn't make it for a whole year at Minco. You couldn't do real man's work. Look at my name on here, I'm sure you have seen me there. I'm sure that I didn't bother taking the time to learn your name....since you didn't even make it a year. I have a great job....not in the plant though. I make good money for a college educated woman in Greene County. I'm not saying that it isn't cold in the winter and hot in the summer, but those guys bust their butts everyday for honest money. Hard to find someone in Greeneville doing that anymore. Oh and Mike isn't over HR anymore, we are now owned by 3M Corp, keep up with your facts.
