Magnesita is a fast paced, high stress environment, The machinery is old and not maintained or repaired, making meeting your production goals that much more difficult. Managers are appointed without any knowledge of the department they are taking over. Overall, a high paying job in a terrible work environment that relies on fear and threats to maintain employee discipline.

Accounting Coordinator (Former Employee) – York, PA – 3 February 2016
Too much work for people employed. Company keeps downsizing. Co workers were fine. Management does not listen to their employees. Hardest part of job was the point that they were always changing the way things were done. Most enjoyable was people I worked with
Engineer (Former Employee) – York, PA – 9 December 2013
Worked here for a short period of time. Pay was good, hours were reasonable, and the people were especially nice. They have a number of vacancies because they're located in a remote area, and their expectations can sometimes be unreasonable and turnover somewhat high.

My typical day begins with doing inventory and meetings. I then do 3 different reports during the morning. The rest of the day I usually am working on orders to suppliers and setting truckload shipments up.
I have learned a great amount of the steel industry. I never imagined learning so much about the chemistry and how steel is made.
