Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) – Decatur, AL – January 11, 2017
Worthington did a good job of training employees. Typical day at work was managing customer accounts from raw material to final delivery. I learned how to earn and ask for more money. Management at corporate was fine, but different at the local plant level. Most enjoyable part of the job was the colleagues. Worthington did focus on health care and built a gym on site.
Worthington"s culture follows the golden rule. It is never satisfied with the status quo. It does not fear change management. Every discipline is motivated to get better through profit sharing and bonus structure
Worthington Industries is a company that values their customers, and is dedicated to their employees.

Mechanical Engineering Internship (Former Employee) – Garfield Heights, OH – September 14, 2016
I successfully completed various projects including the classification of drawings and machine schematics. Daily activities were fairly consistent and involved a project where I was almost solely self-supervised. I was also around the general maintenance team very often learning and assisting wherever possible.
I worked here right after high school and three months in and they wanted to advance me, so they sent me to school and it was payed by them while they had already advanced my position to a Maintenance Technician to learn Great people, great benefits
Good atmosphere with tight schedules. Need to work on your own as the support in very limited as everyone has a deadline. Management is young and still has learning ahead of them but getting the job done.

Worthington Industries has potential for a long term career. However with recent activities in the oil and gas industry there have been several broad terminations throughout this facility. Unfortunately there doesn't look to be improvement in the amount of sales that would be needed to keep the current staff. I believe in the near future more terminations will be handed out due to lack of work. The company is looking to upgrade this facility for when the industry picks back up. They have a decent engineering department that is capable of meeting a much higher demand that what is available at this time. The manufacturing side has 2 departments, steel and fiberglass. Currently Fiberglass is carrying the facility in sales and work flow. The steel side has been dramatically reduced, but the availability of work will undoubtedly create a need for a larger work force that can get the job done.
currently 40hrs week fridays off
lack of work, lack of communication, new ideas and constructive criticism is not well received
Paint Line (Former Employee) – Jefferson, OH – December 21, 2015
I loved working there, even though half the people on the paint line where actually rude and huge drama starters, I mainly kept to myself. The days went by pretty fast, there wasn't really much overtime when I was there. I would love to go back there if I had the chance!!! definitely a great place to work. Oh the main bad thing is you have to wear a jacket every day all day for the first 90 days even in the burning hot weather!!! also the benefits are great the insurance for the health care is also good.
only two breaks. and having to wear a jacket in the summer.
You got through a lot to get on there. And you stay broke for almost a month waiting on the first paycheck. Plus having to buy boots. Some people work very very hard. And others do not. Which is terrible and makes the hard workers burned out. Beware if you get hired for production they will throw you anywhere they want. And if you don't like it there's the door. Very unsafe.
Some very good people. Not all but some. Ok money
management don't want to know how things get done. Not really. Watch your back always.
Machine Operator/Assembly (Former Employee) – Chilton, WI – November 8, 2015
They just don't no how to treat people and don't care anything about the people working there just numbers. They would walk out hard working people that they hired becausethey were not able to keep up.
Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Garden City, KS – October 20, 2015
I accepted a position with Worthington Industries directly out of college. They did a good job utilizing the knowledge that I gained at school while teaching me about their industry and products. The people were great and always quick to help and teach. My position was located in South West Kansas which was less than ideal as there is not much going on in the area. I have moved back home to Minnesota since leaving my position
Worthington Industries is a great company to work for. Daily I handle quality issues with material for various lines and blanking presses. Also I enter quality results for testing and run a CMM machine to check dimensions on blanks and various tooling.
