The job was relaxed if you were a butt kisser and stayed in the management's faces.It is a good boy type of business.
Packing,Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Murfreesboro, TNDecember 26, 2017
The management acts superior and if you are not in their circle,you will not get overtime or hired on full time.Great paying job,but most of the supervisors tell you to ask questions if you have any,but give you attitude when you ask...not a very good environment for a person with a backbone.
Pros
Free Lunches and they somewhat carry a family settting.
Cons
Long days, Short breaks

If your not in the inner circle, your not going to last long.
Employee (Former Employee) –  Catoosa, OKDecember 20, 2017
More product out the door with no regard for employees safety. Injuries are a no no due to safety procedures but if one occurs, your let go and it's swept under the rug to protect the bosses bonus. Raises, dinners etc. are promised for good numbers but never delivered.

Relaxed, just show up on time and everyday you should be fine
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 9, 2017
Relaxed environment, probably not a long term job for somebody with little experience. For somebody with a lot of experience or a certification of some sort, it is definitely a great job.
Pros
Management doesn't breathe down you back
Cons
Its cold in the winter

No raises
Logistics / operator (Current Employee) –  Calvert, ALOctober 5, 2017
Your yearly raise is basically a cost of living raise. Set monday-friday work week 7-3:30. Overtime is rare and there aren't any production bonuses. Start out with 2 weeks vacation but no sick days.

Productive and organized enviornment
Accounting Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sharonville, OHSeptember 18, 2017
A typical day at Kloeckner would consist of several administrative duties that one can refer to my resume to review. Management had clear requirements that were enforced on all levels of employment.

The hardest part of the job was completing the daily tasks while making progress with back logs and files. The most enjoyable part of Kloeckner how the team communicated and adjusted well.
Pros
Communication

ok place to work
Maintenance Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKSeptember 13, 2017
Worked there for several years. Loved the job when I hired on and things went down hill from there.
Hired on to maintain the machines for production and have to fight with management to get downtime to do minor preventative maintenance, that turns into major breakdown that could have been avoided and the huge cost of the breakdown.
Pros
global company can move to another facility
Cons
break times monitored and only 8 minutes

I dont like this company
CTL Operator (Former Employee) –  Huger, SCSeptember 11, 2017
They don't care about no one but themselves. Work more and get paid less then what you put in. Don't work for this company. They don't care about you they just care about their bonuses.

Good industry---- bad company
Quality Assurance Manager (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaAugust 28, 2017
This company is the skeletal remains of what used to be a good company in a good industry. The Managment from the GM on up is an absolute joke. They are barely around and actually act like they know what is going on, when in reality, they are seen as the village idiots. I hope the shareholders wake up and make the needed changes near the top before it is too late.
Pros
Good equipment
Cons
No leadership

Seems like it may be a good company to work for but this location has been run nearly all the way into the ground.
Plasma Operator (Former Employee) –  Amarillo, TXMay 20, 2017
The equipment at this location needs some attention, management seemed interested in helping in some areas and are headed in the right direction but it is going to take a long time to make a turn around. Especially since they seem to continuously loose good employees.
The communication and organization was sickening. Working long hours was never an issue because I was near getting my benefits and would be receiving less per paycheck than through the temp agency. But last-minute decisions and getting blindsided by customer/salesman demands was ridiculous.
In the end, the pay was not worth the headache.
Pros
No layoffs due to high turnover
Cons
No organization/comunication

Early morning start to a hard days work
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 4, 2017
your work day starts off at 5:30 am so you have to have to wake up before the sun.You get there have a meeting and they will send you to different areas depending on what they need you to do for the day. It could range from working the crane cleaning the floors all day doing some inventory grinding metal pieces down with a grinder and etc. the possibilities are endless. They will make sure you keep busy until they don't need you because production is going down.
Pros
good pay
Cons
tough work
