Temporary Job (Former Employee) –  Salina, KSJanuary 12, 2018
You sure don't have time to stand around. You are always busy and if you do finish your job, there is always something else t do. The managers will listen and give feedback to your concerns.
Pros
Fair managers
Cons
Casual conversation is horrible.

CNC Machinist (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 11, 2018
this is a good paying job. but a real cheap place to work. expect employees to do a 2 man job at a fast pace. this makes the experience here horrible. hostile.. but they pay well and the benefits are also good

MATERIAL HANDLER (Former Employee) –  Valley, NEJanuary 3, 2018
A typical day for me was usually working alone on a specialized task. I worked in a separate building in charge of minor maintenance on product(s), data logging/data entry and making sure it was ready for shipping. I learned quite a bit of information, however, most job specific knowledge isn't applicable outside of the workplace.I did on the other hand gain vast experience with various tools and machinery. The culture of my workplace changed drastically within the few years I was employed from relaxed to immensely oppressive and depressive. The hardest part of the job was definitely working up at the 834 degree kettle area, where product was coated with molten zinc, or the weeks on end without time off. The most enjoyable part of my job to me meanwhile, was the workplace relationships/ friendships that I have made in the process.
Pros
Great pay and benefits, and job security.
Cons
short breaks, over worked, mismanaged.

Helper/Material Controller (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKDecember 29, 2017
Good overall, just have to be aware of your surroundings. And always play it safe. The atmosphere was not the cleanest, but that's normal with a machine shop.
Good leadership, and friendly co-workers.

Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  West Point, NEDecember 28, 2017
it is a decent place to work. Good people, excellent benefits, and good work hours. If there was a Valmont in Lincoln I would simply transfer but that's not the case.

plant manager a joke
Class Welder (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKDecember 23, 2017
Valmont was a great place to work when i first started but so many changes in the last 2 years in tulsa plant i see a decline maybe even a lay off. The new plant manager doesn't value hard working employees ive seen him fire one of our best fitters for checking the time on his phone. This fitter would often work through his breaks stay late or whatever he had to do to get poles fitted to be welded if it was a hot job. Now we have a replacement fitter in his spot who cant do the job. This plant manager has a chip on his shoulders and if upper management dont control him its only a matter of time before he brings the plant down. Ive also heard him tell guys "im not sure if i shoukd keep you" management shouldn't talk to employees like this. Now moral is down and so many people are looking for new jobs including myself.
Pros
coworkers, decent pay
Cons
plant manager and no bonus

Intern (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKDecember 5, 2017
The work is of course difficult and often repetitive. If you keep your head down and don't create drama with other employees its a fantastic place to work. The middle and upper management teams are often very understanding and show respect towards their underlings. I would suggest this company to anyone who seeks to make decent wage and

Worked in the department of accounting
Accounting Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Valley, NENovember 15, 2017
General billing duties, typing, use of the copier, fax machine, computer, phone

Learned the basics of doing journal entries and how the billing system worked.

Quiet office environment, but friendly atmosphere

Hardest part of the job was when the computer system changed.

The most enjoyable part of the job was having office parties with potlucks.

Staff (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 9, 2017
The Los Angeles site has a lot to evolve still. Management is not so great, great people not so great supervisors. Supervisors need to take some classes on how to treat general workers.

Quality Assurance Inspector - Utility Division (Current Employee) –  Jasper, TNOctober 26, 2017
If you're in Quality, they don't care. They are about production. They have no integrity. The management is horrible. They work you to death and it seams day by day it gets worse. They wont live up to their promise on paying people. The only thing positive is there is much work as you can handle.
Pros
work constantly, as much as you want
Cons
management, work environment

Not the greatest place, but pay was great.
Sales (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 23, 2017
Only upside was compensation with benefits and random free lunches. Loud, busy and smelled at times. Not a fun place to work, but depending on your job title, it was either always a busy and fast-paced day or the opposite. Supervisor was kind but seemed to be doing his own thing. Balance between job/life was okay because earlier hours allowed to go home early.
Pros
Compensation & Benefits, luncheons
Cons
Work environment
