Pros: good benefits, flexibility with pto
Cons: lower pay for the industry, bonuses are subjective, not based on performance
This was a great job to break into the metals industry. This company is very innovative in the products they offer and the training is extensive. I did not come with a background in this industry, but learned so much during my time.
The sales branches are more like call centers and can be very busy. The expectations are a bit much but the effort to meet expectations are acknowledged if if you didn't meet them.
The hardest part of the job was to keep up with customer calls and all the parameters given in order to perform stellar service on every call.
The best part of the job was the customers. Most of them were enjoyable to talk to and easy to form relationships with.
