Good place to work but lacks the resources needed to be efficient.

Excellent place to work depending on your position. Sims Metal Management is culturally diverse which makes for a good place to grow as a team player. The company is very safety wise. Maintenance department is lacking in resources. It is quite hard to do your job efficiently without the tools needed to complete a job in a timely manner.
Operator (Former Employee) – Chesterton, IN – September 9, 2015
It started out like being part of a family but then realized all too late that everyone was disposable. It was hard work that was mostly unappreciated with poor equipment. Always looking for shortcuts even if it neglected safety. Personal friends of the owner were more important than longtime everyday clients.
A lot of experience in a short amount of time in a wide variety of fields.
The owners would sell out anyone to get ahead even an inch.
