Production Worker (Former Employee) – Shelbyville, IN – August 11, 2017
A place to apply proven skills and learn new ones. Not climate controlled and is very Hot in the summer and very Cold during winter. Steel work is heavy, hard, dirty, loud, and always dangerous. Lots of required PPE....High turn over.
Had good benifits if you could handle to work
lots of injuries & benifits continued to shrink for the workers
Machinist (Former Employee) – Shelbyville, IN – December 18, 2017
The company did not pay well but they treated their team members very well. Time off for the holidays. A Holiday ham for every team member. It may not be a lot but they did little things to let the team know they were appreciated.

I mean, come on, bottom line is you need a job…they have a job they need filled…it’s basic math, right?!
Actually, it’s not, and like any and all questions an interviewer is asking you, it’s not as simple as it might seem.
In fact, this question is far from simple and while it seems like they’re asking you for just one straightforward bit of information, they are actually asking you for two very complex answers…and therein that complexity lies the stumbling block.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Shelbyville, IN – July 12, 2017
The co workers were pretty awesome, but management left a lot to be desired, I was terminated for serving my country by taking on a temporary assignment in the Indiana Army National Guard by a manager who retained their job after wrecking the company truck while too drunk to walk let alone drive.
Inventory Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 11, 2017
* A typical day of work obviously depends upon position. Lots of time on the computer. * Great training program. Very well rounded. * All managers are very friendly and have an open door policy. Willing to help with whatever you need. * The culture is great. Very family friendly atmosphere. Always doing holiday parties and office parties for Birthdays, new babies, etc. * The steel industry can be volatile based on the economy. When it's great it's great. When it's bad it is really bad.
Great compensation and benefits and work/life balance.
Foreman (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – May 31, 2017
They always wanted more work, I was working through my lunch breaks trying to appease them and every day they complained more. They give you people who have no experience and expect you to lead them like a proficient crew. The managers there talk to you like you're a dog. My entire career i have never had someone so unsatisfied with my work and at the same time gotten paid so little. Not a good place!
Bad pay, people with no experience, will want to punch the salespeople because they will make your job harder for a buck with no qualms
parts cleaning is a hard job but fun at the same time. I learned that you can cut metal. Management is bad. workplace is good environment. Hardest part of the job is getting production on time. I enjoy my co workers at work.
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – April 1, 2017
there closed now. it was fun when i worked there. we screwed around and got alot of work done which probably isnt a good combo to get work done but we really did bust our humps there. and we made the company alot of money in the process.
sales/operations (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 30, 2017
I put in a good company to work for, it was up until 2010, they hired new management from the outside instead of seeking within the company, they decided to down size and a lot of good employees lost their job. I really thought at one time that O'Neal was the place were I was going to rest my hat when my working days were complete. Over all a very good company to work for back in the day!!
Management will forever you if you even question their decisions. All management are on the "buddy buddy" system and the ones that advance are totally unqualified. The pay is ok and the jobs are not hard and they have pretty good insurance. My coworkers are the greatest. They are unfair and tell lies right in front of your face. Don't work here. Point blank
