Great company if you are in the job that you want to be in. Sometimes employees are moved to other positions that the employee does not want to be in and they are stuck.
Pros
Monthly luncheon is great
Cons
Compensation is lower than most places, but the overtime helps to even it out

Terrible Company to work for
CNC/Manual Machine Setup/Operator (Former Employee) –  Clinton, WIAugust 16, 2015
Terrible place to work for they work you like a dog 60+ hours a week. Pay is not within national range, They say family is number one and most important when you get hired. But what they fail to tell you is Scot forge is your new family. The Clinton office is run by a bunch of idiots that do not know what there doing.
Pros
Retirement is supposidely good but who knows in 10 years
Cons
Everything

Very demanding and stressful job.
Metallurgical Lab Attendant (Former Employee) –  Spring Grove, ILApril 28, 2015
I worked at Scot Forge for three years and was laid off in 2009. I would prepare metal samples for analysis. These pieces would be used for submarines, barrels for tanks, and other military equipment. It was very stressful because the paperwork being signed off has to be 100% accurate or there could be potential fatalities involved if your calculations were incorrect.
Pros
Free lunches and minor bonus every month.
Cons
Only one review and raise took place in three years.

Not ideal workplace
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Clinton, WINovember 29, 2014
Long hours, hot in summer cold in winter. Little to no opportunity to advance. You will work a minimum of 60 hr a week. Most departments work 5am to 5pm or 5pm to 5am with 5 to 12 hrs on saturday. If a loved one dies n you miss work or just miss for any reason it will be brought up on your review n you probably won't get a raise. They hire new employees at gift wages than the 10 yr employees training them. I know several people that lost their lives young due to breathing in the polymer from quench tanks and the aluminum/titanium and various metal dust in the air. Company could be great if employee owners had a say in anything. they will hire new employees straight to day shift over 5 yr vets. This is a company that will do whatever they want with no consideration to you or your family. Good luck working for this company.
Pros
good retirement
Cons
cold in the winter, hot in the summer, no advancement opportunity / not family oriented / long hours, ma and pa mentality with logistics n production in general

Great Place to Work!!
Current Employee (Current Employee) –  Spring Grove, ILJanuary 23, 2013
The Forge is a great place to work, everyone works hard and puts the customer first. Great benefits, bonuses, and retirement plan.

If you work hard you will be rewarded, if you don't you won't be there long - that's employee ownership at work!
Pros
benefits, bonuses, retirement plan, the people
Cons
none really - hard honest days work for good wages

MACHINIST (Former Employee) –  Clintion,WiOctober 22, 2012
Scot forge runs 12 hours on 12 off. A high tech machine shop and forge plant. The other employees are friendly and fun to be around. Managment is great but every department varies. Each job has its ups and downs there.
Pros
each month the company provides a free lunch
Cons
long hours
