Great job to learn new or more skills
Operator c (Current Employee) – Magna Utah – October 14, 2015
A typical day of work at the power plant includes: Blowing soot on the boilers, Running coal, Shoveling, Dumping out the rock traps, Performing rounds (inspecting equipment), Slagging the molten coal out of the boiler, Inspecting the boilers. When the boilers are offline for maintenance you use a vacuum truck, shoot plugs through the condensers tubes, Perform housekeeping items (sweeping, moving debri, ect).
At this job I learned a great deal about boilers, forklift/dozer operations, coal, and coal quality, Some Physical labor techniques.
Management is great and willing to work with and for you.
Co-workers are good but can be prone to childish behaviors.
Hardest part of the job is slagging out the boilers. Or trying to catch up if a malfunction occurs in the plant.
Best part of this job is what is available to be learned. The skills and qualifications they give freely.
