If you have no self respect and like being treated like trash work here.
Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJanuary 6, 2016
A typical day. be ordered to show up 30 minutes to an hour early(unpaid) worked beyond scheduled hours(only paid for hours scheduled)
Safety standards were actually good. Depending on the location and requirements.
Management is a Joke.
Hardest part of the job is doing the set up and tear down, you have to be 10% smarter than the material you're working with.
Co-workers bring personal drama into the work environment
Being a junkie is a plus in terms of getting hired.

Walmart starts their employees out at a higher pay rate.
Pros
Plenty of hours to get.
Cons
Treated like trash

Hard work, no life, and not competive pay.
Office Administrator (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 5, 2015
Typical day at MPW for our techs is a very hard, hot, and very life consuming. There is no set hours, guys are required to just at a command. Favoritism is very big in this company.

Technician (Current Employee) –  Middletown, OHSeptember 8, 2014
When arriving to work I attend a daily safety meeting. To discuss what our safety goals are everyday. Then proceed to our job for the days location. I am Currently working in the Coke Plant cleaning the coal belts. The hardest part of my job is having to work with a Respirator mask. This mask makes my job difficult because it is harder to breathe. The most enjoyable part of my job is that it is for the most part set hours.

horrible
Technician (Current Employee) –  Dravosburg, PASeptember 8, 2014
hard work low pay,machines and support vehicles are barely operatable,you can do very good at the job and youre lucky if you get a thank you or pat on the back.poor management the only thing they care about is if the job is done and the money.negativity all around. the hardest part of the job would be minimal help some jobs are very physical and require a big crew and you can end up with only 3 people. the only enjoyable part of the job is traveling and perdium although you have to wait for pay day to get it and if you dont have money to eat on and youre unable to go they will keep you off the schedule for awhile.its hard to get fired because they just wont work you and force you to quit so you are unable to collect unemployment if needed. it is in no way shape or form a suggested job for ANYBODY except if you just got out of high school and simply need some type of job.
Pros
traveling to different states
Cons
no immediate perdium

Senior Dispatcher & Logistics (Current Employee) –  Dravosburg, PA 15034August 22, 2014
typical day is 8-12 hours, then on call at home 24/7. I learned a lot about a role as a dispatcher. The management, other than H.R, was very sneaky and deceiving. They bring you in with a basket of promises, and give you a basket of dirt to show appreciation for all of your hard work. Management & co workers here, will toss you under the bus & pass the buck every chance they are given. the hardest part of the job, is seeing how they treat their backbones. The most enjoyable part is getting to know all of my laborers & techs.

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
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.
Pros
getting trucks loaded and golf outings.
