not a good place
Temper Mill Operator (Former Employee) –  South Bend, INJune 17, 2017
You r treated unfair at this place. people in charge have their fav. workers and let them get away with everything. and write other people up for same thing that their fav. workers get away with doing. also if you are related to the union president then you can get second and third step probation when they get in trouble to many times but regular workers just get fired. worked here for 6 years
Pros
none anymore they took them all away
Cons
50-60hrs a week with no appreciation, everyone in charge plays favoritism

great place to work for with excellent benefits
Materials Assignment/Inventory Manager (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNMay 15, 2017
This is a great place to work for. The benefits are excellent. The owners care about their employees. It consists of steel coils that get flattened down to make different things, like trailer beds on 18 wheelers, etc.
Pros
Bonuses, benefits, owners are great people, competitive wages
Cons
None

The job was fair
Supervisor/ Manager (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHMay 4, 2017
Typical day at work was coming in making sure everyone was at there work stations, while making sure everyone was working safely.

management was there very rarely, most of the time I made the decisions that concerned the shop or determined the shipment, along I personally inspected any parts that were questionable about shipping.

Be prepared to be stabbed in the back.

Terrible company culture.

Cheap and unsafe
Mill Operator (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHDecember 7, 2016
My experience with Steel Warehouse was mostly negative. Their business plan, at least in Cleveland, is to hire inexperienced people in order to pay then well under the industry average. Bad management all the way around. I'll be surprised if the Cleveland plant makes it to 2020.
Pros
Close knit, promotes from within
Cons
Unsafe, faulty equipment, under average pay, poor leadership

Great Place to Work
IT Department (Current Employee) –  South Bend, INJune 8, 2016
I have never worked for a company that was so in tune and concerned with their employee's family life as well as their work. The owners and managers at Steel Warehouse seem to truly grasp the fact that work is only a portion of a person's life, and work to balance that with employment requirements. I have honestly enjoyed my employment here and am eternally grateful for all of the help, support and understanding I received from management and staff through some pretty trying personal times.
Pros
Flexible, good pay, good benefits, great people
Cons
not as much advancement opportunity for women
