Pros: decent starting pay, overtime
Cons: terrible medical coverage, horrible leadership, bad work environment, sub par benefits, freezing cold, do not provide welding jackets or hoods, inept management system
Sabre Industries is by far one of the worse places I have worked at. Ever. The work itself wasn't bad by any means and some of the lead men and supervisors actually knew what they were doing. The worse part about the job is upper management, especially the plant manager. I worked there from the months of December 2013 to February 2014, and during that short amount of time, they moved me from Fitting to Welding then to Material Handling and cut my pay.
The one thing that really makes this job terrible is the management. They play favorites, have no idea what their talking about and generally pester you all throughout the day then blame you for not getting much of anything done.
Sabre Industries has a terrible working environment, being freezing cold during the winter months as they're too cheap to get proper heaters and they don't provide you with welding hoods or jackets nor compensate your expenses. My co-workers were friendly at least, full of knowledgeable people who share their experience and help you out when you have a question that needs answered.
The hardest part of the job was having to put up with the plant manager incessantly hounding me throughout the day like he had nothing better to do with his time. The only truly enjoyable part of my job was clocking out at the end of the day.
If you get a job offer from Sabre Industries in Ellwood City PA, turn it down. Trust me, you'll thank me later.
