    I worked at Mine Safety Appliances as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent Wages for temps, high pay for regular employees.

    Cons

    You will temp forever, and unless you know someone in HR, you won't get hired full time even with qualifications and experience temping for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Temp to Hire employees. 90 day temp then hire on full time. Don't save positions for full time employees relatives.

    I worked at Mine Safety Appliances full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Of all the manufacturing plants I have worked in, MSA Cranberry was one of the cleanest and most organized.

    Cons

    Many levels of middle-management ensure the staff employee will be doing a lot of updating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful not to overlap the responsibilities of the departments.
