Overall, not a bad place.
Heavy machine operator (Current Employee), Petersburg, VAMarch 13, 2014
Pros: ability to move around with in company.
Cons: poor pay and poor advancement.
All in all, it is definitely a learn as you go company, as the training is concerned and you learn to repair as you make mistakes. Pay isn't anywhere near as high as should be for being qualified not only on mobile equipment, but also over head cranes and driving/switching locomotives and the hours are short. Better than most jobs in the area, but compensation – more... needs improvement. – less

Challenging & Fun
Plant Superintendent (Current Employee), Dallas, TXFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: safety, good people, great culture, benefits
Cons: pay is a little low for what my job entails, being so far from home
Everyday is a fun and exciting day. Recently, we just concluded a 2.25 million dollar expansion at my facility that brought several challenges each and everyday. These range from ensuring that the contractors we used met our safety requirements as well as stayed safe while on our facility to recruiting and hiring in another 20 employees to work in various – more... departments that report to me. Once the above was completed, then we were challenged with training our new hires to our culture, our safety programs and finally our production processes and practices. This is one of the most rewarding parts of my job in looking where we started this facility in 2009 and where we have now been able to bring it. We are still faced with many challenges ahead of us but have laid down some great groundwork. The most important job that one can do as a manager is to make sure that everyone of his employee's goes home at night in the same shape if not better than when that employee started off that day. I can proudly say that we have not had a LTA since we opened these doors and have gone over 3 years no pushing on 4 without an OSHA recordable.

All this and we still lead our Region in 80% of our KPI's as well as put ourselves up there with the best in the company. – less

Empty promises
Operator (Current Employee), Knoxville, TNFebruary 15, 2014
Pros: fair pay for unskilled labor, safety is important
Cons: certain benefits unattainable, lack of internal opportunity.
Certain benefits are made very difficult to receive even when employee is well qualified. There is a lack of internal opportunity due to repressive tactics of shop upper management.

Tundage Worker/ Slide Gate Technician
Technician (Former Employee), Vidor, TXNovember 22, 2013
Pros: excellent work schedule. decent salary and lots of overtime. five minutes from house
Cons: in house union, making it hard get promoted. promotions made by seniority
This was the job i was going to retire from. I loved what i did. I was a tech for the company. I was in charge of slide gates at the bottom of furnace ladles that controlled the outflow of liquid steel. My job was to monitor controls and prevent malfunctions. Also do any maintenance or rebuilding of addles, slide gates, and tundishes.

Due to the instability – more... of the economy at the time, unfortunately they had to shut down the mill and go back to Brazil where their company was based out of. – less
