I started in 1996 when Omni was a family owned business.it was a great place to work. since 2007 Omni has been owned by steel dynamics. at first it was great. but the last few years, business has gotten more competitive. we have slowly lost work and respect for sdi.
bonuses and stocks.
it seems like the more work you do, the more they want out of you.
Dock Worker/Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – December 17, 2014
Morning meeting to see what was needed at the time. Types and grades of metal. I learned packaging of products. Management was helpful and willing to teach. Co-workers learned how to come together to work hand in hand, The hardest part of the job was winter time. the best part of the day was when we knew that we accomplished the day.
My job at Derby was like any other day. I punch in at the time clock about 10 minutes before it was time to start, because it took about 5 minutes to walk back to the area where I had to work. I learned how to train others that were having trouble remembering what to do. The guy that was in charge over everyone in our area was great. Every day was different but fun, he always made you smile. Of course everyone had their off days when everything seemed to go wrong. Sometimes co-workers didn't show up for work and it made it harder on the rest of use, however we all got through the day. I liked the job mainly because it was really easy, and my co-workers was one of the reasons it was easy. I enjoyed working with and around then, and yes I do miss some of them. Any time someone needed help in catching up on their pallet, someone was there to help.
The ONLY thing I did not like about the job is that there was no air conditioning, and it got really hot.
Every now and then Derby would provide Lunch for everyone, and when it was really hot, someone would bring a HUGE jug of tea for everyone to stay hydrated.
Challenging environment involving travel, ever-changing environments, and diverse people.

Buyer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 30, 2013
I was the supervisor over the non-ferrous retail buyback center. A typical day consisted of a steady flow of retail customers. I learned how to identifyn stolen material brought in for sale and what steps to take.
Management was not good and lacking ethics.Support was available but many times ineffective
My peers were for the most part a pleasure to work with. My staff under me were hard working,agreeable and learned procedures quickly. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving.
The hardest part of the job was the enethical upper managment.
*mostly data entry, purchase order processing and service calls to suppliers for contract work *I've attended several training classes for learning safety as well as Microsoft programs. *Management is different in each area. *I am one of only two females in our department. *Sorting invoices for work I wasn't aware had been performed is challenging. *I enjoy company functions where people who work in all areas come together.
