Quality Manager (Former Employee) –  Council Bluffs, IAJuly 23, 2015
I was employed for just over 24 years at Griffin Pipe Products in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Although times could be high pressure and stressful, I loved every single day. I began as a probationary laborer in 1990 and worked upward into management over the course of my tenure. It has been an honor and privilege to work with the many managers, supervisors and people employed at Griffin Pipe.
Pros
Diversity of people and product lines - everyday an adventure
Cons
I can think of nothing. If they re-open the Council Bluffs facility, I would be happy to return.

Casting Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VAFebruary 17, 2015
The workers at the griffin pipe plant in Lynchburg VA were great to work with.
The best thing to happen to the workers at griffin pipe was that U.S. pipe bought it from Amsted.
