Management ruined what could have been a great place to work. The maintenance manager would not allow promotion from within and would go so far as to lie about positions. The production managers allowed poor work practices to continue and would not bring accountability to operators tearing up equipment. As long as you are a buddy of the supervisor, you could do whatever you want but if not, don't even sneeze wrong. Equipment is falling apart due to management not getting parts needed for proper repair. The company seems to be run by people that either don't know or don't care. Finally had all I could take and jumped on a better opportunity. Seriously consider not working here if you have ANY other option.
Worked at Boomerang since its inception in April of 2010. I learned an awful lot while working there. There are a lot of good people that work there that are very dedicated and great to work with. The best part of the job was that I truly loved working there.
Operator (Former Employee) – Liberty, TX – February 3, 2015
A typical day at work included my daily duties I learned new things management and co-workers were great the hardest part of my job was doing something ive never done before the most enjoyable part was doing it by myself
Very repetitive work day, learned operation of many different machines, Management was very inexperienced and unorganized, Very good coworkers that worked great together' Hardest part of job was poor scheduling and new eqipment, I enjoyed this job because it was fast paced and precise.
Great benefits, great co workers
poor inexperienced management, as new company not very secure place to work
I have learned so much about steel from my manager. He trains constantly and it keeps you on your toes. My typical day involves preparing reports of the previous day's production, communicating and visiting 2 heat treating lines, preparing heat treat run condition, and doing necessary metallography for upper management.

My typical day at work is stressful I learned as much as I could teach my self management will fire over nothing have some good and bad coworker like any other job hardest part being there for 12hr standing in one spot no weekend off
A typical day at Boomerang Tube is long hours and extremely hard work. From the first day I started co workers was very helpful and like to help beginners reach accomplishments. I have to say the hardest part of the job is the slitter department cutting coil banding them and trying to keep up the pace but the job is a wonderful place to work and make friends
