Good at the beginning with the potential for advancement opportunities. There were a lot of good people who unfortunately lost their jobs. It was an interesting place to work and I learned a lot about the steel industry.

The job itself is challenging and exciting. The management is by far the worse I have ever experienced. They work their hot end employees to their breaking points causing them to quit and find other jobs. Will not hire anyone ahead of time to fill the spots causing schedules of all the hot end employees to be screwed up. They call you every day your off to try and get you to come in and help out. They will never let you know ahead of time. Certain employees get special treatment and get to play the system with no consequences also causing all of the other employees to get screwed over. I would not recommend working for harsco of blytheville unless you feel like being screwed over time and time again and would like to work 7 days a week with phone calls of being asked to come in on your days off. Also every piece of equipment at the blytheville site is junk. Maintenance will not fix the issues just put bandaids on everything which in time is going to cause someone to get hurt.
nice place to work, a place were u can advance youself..
Helper/Laborer (Former Employee) – Channelview, TX – October 11, 2016
I learned how to multi task my work, my coworkers look out for each other,and working in a safe and clean environment... there is really no hardest part of the job, the most enjoyable part of the job is we will get rewarded by doing a job or task well done..
Requires a lot of safety thinking before taking any action
