Very good Employer
Technician (Former Employee), Hebron, OHJune 5, 2014
Routine work every day and learn to work with a team with good management and nice people to work with but the hardest part of the
work is it comes to dip cleaning. Breaks are most enjoyed.

Wouldn't Recommend
Tech 3 (Current Employee), Essex, MDMay 19, 2014
The schedule is very inconsistent, so you never really know when there is going to be work or not. The management does not care for the employees, and the pay is way below competitive. The co-workers for the most part are alright to deal with but there is a lot of politics with this job.

Three stations that come together to make four products. Those four products create city water into deionized water.
Technician (Former Employee), Newark, OHApril 26, 2014
Pros: getting trucks loaded and golf outings.
First, you attend a safety meeting. Second, you go to your work station, do your job, and update other employees what you need to complete the job or vice versa. Finally, you update the next shift where you left them in the process, in an end of the day safety meeting. Most of the co-workers advised me of potential hazards and worked well as a unit.

Just not for me anymore
FIELD TECH (Current Employee), variousApril 11, 2014
Pros: paid travel time, decent wages, potential to make a lot of money
Cons: extremely erratic hours, staying out of town
I am currently a Field Tech at MPW Industrial Services. We are contractors who go in industrial plants such as steel mills, power plants and so on and clean them. I did learn a lot here; I learned how to operate some of the heavy equipment like our vacuum trucks and waterblasters, and I learned how to drive a standard transmission vehicle.

Most of – more... the people that work here are great to work with. Teamwork is essential in this line of work and it's a great day when everyone works together to find the easiest and safest way possible to do a job. I've been doing this for a while and I enjoy when I'm being counted on to do a job and when someone in supervison looks at it and tells me I did my job well.

The job can can be hard at times... sometimes something doesn't go right, or we're under a lot of pressure to get something done quick, or sometimes the job is just plain hard. It can be a very dirty job too... especially steel mills, I've been in all sorts of grease pits. The work never bothered me though.

I am now in a committed relationship and have a family of my own and this job just doesn't work for me anymore. The hours are erratic... I never know when I'm working, where I'm working, how long I'm working for or when I'm coming home. I can make 800 dollars one week and nothing the next. I need something that's going to be a stable source of income, and something where I can just go to work and come home every day. – less

No chance of planning anything ever
Plant Technician (Current Employee), Port Arthur TXFebruary 9, 2014
Cons: working here.
If you enjoy not being able to make plans for the weekend because you do not find out whether or not you're working the weekend until friday.

If you enjoy being over utilized and underpaid then this is your place.

There is no incentive to work hard, because the weekend work will persist.

Low pay is their way because they do not take into account – more... the area in which you live in.

There is a 97% turnover rate, meaning that 97% of employees that get hired end up leaving.

The work is not hard but monotonous, and mind numbing. – less

Mechanic (Current Employee), Hebrron OHIOJuly 2, 2013
Pros: people
Cons: benefits and compensation
They provide a very safe work environment it always comes first.
Middle management is good but the upper is questionable due to the fact they make decisions about our job not truly understanding what we do by implementing new safety rules that makes our job even more difficult but having an understanding they don't want injury but getting them to understand – more... to much is just as bad as too little – less

Fast paced ever changing work environment
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Dravosburg, PAJune 28, 2013
Pros: friendly environment. helpful coworkers and management
Cons: ever changing work environment.
I love my job. I have become very good at what I do. My co workers are all fantastic and I have nothing bad to say about them. The way the company is run however is a little different. I have never worked for a company like this before. It is a small company, not nationwide, owned by one man. The hardest part of my job is keeping up with the changes – more... day to day. I am in charge of creating the work schedules for the field employees. When an account manager calls a job in to me I must fill it. Sometimes the details of the job can change and I must change the schedule. Other times jobs can cancel all together. The most enjoyable thing would be the amount of information I learned. I never knew what an industrial service cleaning company did and now I am extremely knowledgeable. – less

Incredible people, tons of traveling, and just an over great learning experience
Account Manager (Current Employee), Dravosburg, PAMay 13, 2013
Pros: building close relationships, satisfying customers
Cons: pay, benefits, poor attitudes
Most of my days of work were spent out in the field rather than in the office. Thats how I liked it though. Typically my day stats off with a daily meeting with the plant manager and maintenance manager. We discuss what needs fixed plant wide. Usually when something needs worked on MPW is called on to make sure that the area is cleaned and ready to – more... be worked on. This is where my relationship with the customer is important because the information he relays to me is then relayed to MPW dispatch by myself. I schedule the required equipment and personnel. Next I wait for my crew to show up and hen coordinate the job. I cannot begin to explain how much I have learned since I started with the company. As far as industrial cleaning i've learned astronomical amounts of knowledge. More importantly I learned how to speak and not to speak to people. There are a lot of managers in this company who have little to no people skills. My co-workers were over all unhappy with their career path which in turn is the reason why I am seeking new employment. The hardest part of the job is being in an environment where mostly everyone in it obtains an attitude that doesn't help to motivate. The most enjoyable part of the job is just being able to excel as fast as i did and basically show off my fast learning talents. I was able to catch on very fast which made people shine around me. This was also enjoyable to see my coworkers become proud of their work. – less

I learn a lot daily about business and computer programing, my co-works are always a blast to see and – more... work with very down to earth people,the hardest part of my job would be the email flow I inbox daily just because it seems that everyone in the industry is trying to get ahold of me, the most enjoyable part of my job is the respect I get everyday for being a positive leader within the corporation – less
