Benefits and Policies Don't Go Together
Plant Services Clerk (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, ALFebruary 2, 2018
The insurance is expensive but the problem is you can't plan to be sick. So if you have to call in, not only do you have to use any vacation or PTO that you have, you also receive an occurrence.

Used to be better place to work than most!
Operator (Current Employee) –  Cartersville, GAJanuary 24, 2018
Pay cuts in 2015, and again in 2018, when does it stop.
Corporate greed at its finest! Worked in many jobs here, and like what I do, but would tell anyone looking to look at other places, gerdau used to pay well, but that is all but gone now, can get a job that is less hazardous and with the same perks and comparable pay elsewhere, the only reason I stay is the comfort of being here for a while.
Pros
You will be happy at first
Cons
Then you learn how crappie gerdau really is

Treats employees like family, close knit group of employees. Management is fair, in treatment of employees. Terrific benefits, safety focused. Are involved with community improvements and continued education for employees.

Company is downsizing and outsourcing, which is dramatically altering the morale of the workforce. Some dramatic changes within the organizations executive management has created an uneasy environment.
