Not ideal workplace
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee), Clinton, WINovember 29, 2014
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
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.

Current Employee (Current Employee), Spring Grove, ILJanuary 23, 2013
Pros: benefits, bonuses, retirement plan, the people
Cons: none really - hard honest days work for good wages
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!

MACHINIST (Former Employee), Clintion,WiOctober 22, 2012
Pros: each month the company provides a free lunch
Cons: long hours
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.
