I find that this post is all most a fake or something. People will do about anything to get a job with Mach Mining Company Sugar Camp Mine. I personally know people who are working at some bad places like American coal just so they might have a chance to get a job with a better company. You must not have any mine experience at all if you donít know the difference. A few people like American coal but I have worked there and many others and I will tell you it is a bad scary place with some very mean management they treat people like they are slaves. My advice is to leave American coal alone. I heard it said once that American coal was the starter mine, this is true cause that is what you do you go there get started and hope to get the hell out and move on to a place like Sugar camp. I hope this helps and you are not just putting people on by saying which is better Sugar Camp or American Coal. Am Coal SUCKS> God bless the people there but I am telling you just drive right on by that place. Was the best mine ever before Murry Got it.

no offense but If you think it would " be cool to get dirty" you probably have never worked a hard manual labor job be4 and probably couldn't handle the caliber of work that is done in the coal mines, and Rick if I where you I'd go to sugar camp rather than am coal but I have herd from a guy at my mine that used to work there that alot of the bosses are dickheads to redhats just for the sake of being dickheads, and if you get the chance to go to mach take it over any other mine it is a great place to work and is ran by good people who know there shit

I worked at mach for five years, they are from west virginia and treat everyone like its 1950. Threats scare tactics and everything you don't wanna be around every day. You gotta suck their cocks to get anywhere with them. Damn straight you'll make the money but you won't see your family or have a day for yourself. They lie cheat and take every last bit of dignity you got cause they know you ain't gonna go anywhere else. MSHA knows they break every rule known to mining but they stuff their pockets and their employees pockets to keep it hush hush. I know from experience with these dickheads. Big steroid problem there too. I can name names
