Long commute, unreliable management and irritable coworkers. Very clicky. Too many nerds. They do have food trucks come in once a month and a gym. Probably the only pros (food trucks are mostly garbage though).
My experience with this company was good..however some days I wanted to say F this and quit on the spot but I worked with some good guys and have some funny memories working here I left on good terms in case I ever decide to return.
Get to travel often, decent pay, good coworkers
Management will play with your hours if you make them mad
great job to start out to gain experience in operating or tech field but not a career job.you will learn a lot about different ways certain steel mills operates.management is terrible and need change.hardest part of my job as an operator are the trucks themselves because there not in the best shape.
you work within the steel mills and this job are located in other cites
you have to call between 5-7 to see if you are on the schedule for the next day and that is everyday
MPW is great and I would happily have continued working there if they were able to composate as well as other jobs in the Columbus, OH area. Note, you must wear a long sleeve shirt and tie, everyday except on Fridays; that includes in the summer.
It is a drama filled environment and will stress you out bad. And supervisors are dating people on the same shift plus management let people get away with threating other people and dont fire them they don't follow policy it's all politics.
A company that hires mostly felons with a long list of criminal records was not the company for me. Often times you have people coming and going, I had people who only seem to know how to talk about drugs and drugs only. It was bad! I had people showing me where they had heroine track marks and I also had a man offer me suboxone over and over to telling him “No” over and over again to him saying he would put it in my water to writing out a statement on this man to him then getting away with it because he denied ever saying it and the next day he got a job promotion and with that job promotion came a big pay in crease by over $4.00 making way more than me. Too much drug activity at this company and too many people higher up with too big of criminal records for me to be around including a team leader that was charged for robbing a store att gunpoint
I started of being a technician,and in four months,I became a crew leader.Because of my ambition to do better in life and to make sure,everyone on my crew stayed safe.I gained more knowledge and experience!!
You start out at $12 an hour. They say if you want more money, you have to learn more. But if you get stuck doing a job. That they can't find nobody else to do. Then you're stuck in your stuck at that pay rate. There's no growth. Everything is petty. And if you're the low man on the totem pole It's just a matter of time before they push you out.
I worked as a supervisor and witnessed unethical behavior almost daily. They will terminate employees for reporting harrasment/discrimination or claiming an injury. They pay management well but the technicians are overworked and paid minimum wage even though the work is very dangerous.
