very stressful and disappointing
Assembler/ Quality inspector (Former Employee), florence scMay 5, 2015
Pros: n/a
Cons: na
At Worthington industries, we worked for long hours for very little chances of advancement or any compensations. The overtime wasn't a problem because i actually enjoyed the extra money. the problem was working 10-14 hours a day, 6 or 7 days a week and never making a profit.

good company with free coffee
Welder (Current Employee), Wooster, OHMarch 20, 2015
Welding on various piping and pressure vessels. I have learned quite a bit while working there I am now certified in 2 types of 6G and 2g spray for the company. Not much faith in the management It seems – more... the place is going downhill from my point of view tho I could be wrong. There is a lot of good workers there all around great people. Everything there is pretty simple tho some of the jobs welding inside of 24 inch vessels is pretty tough. I enjoy welding on coil pipes it gives me a challenge and makes me feel fulfilled at the end of the day. – less

it was like shuffling crew never knew from day to day where you would be
torch asembler (Former Employee), Chilton, WIFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: having potluck that was intersting, different cultures
Cons: lunch should be at least 20min instead of 15
The typical day would start out with a meeting, to work safe, and to do your best. I learned to have more patients with others, working with people that accept you instead of juging you, the management – more... was very friendly, if you had a problem you could talk with them.My coworkers were friendly. sometimes we enjoyed the oldies station together. We always got done in a greatly manner. The hardest part was figuring out if you had enough parts and enough materials to run for the night. The most enjoyable part of the job was you could always laugh when you and your coworkers are joking around, they would include you. – less

Typical Day
Machine Operator/Packer (Former Employee), Chilton, WINovember 7, 2014
I enjoyed learning a new field of work, especially on products that are high demand and the factory runs 24/7. Supervisors, co-workers, were pleasant to work with. Hours (my shift) typically were 4:55am – more... till 3:00pm and every other Saturday. Sunday work was available as well and voluntary.
The first day or two of course, were usually the more challenging ones, being new and trying to learn the job, but again, Worthington was a great company to work for. – less

HR Assistant (Current Employee), Chilton, WIAugust 18, 2014
Pros: i get to meet new people every day and and the employees there are very positive.
Cons: the job i have is temporary.
A typical day at work for me at Worthington Industries being incharge of orientation for new employees. Before the new employees can go through orientation I enter their background check and make sure – more... that i check new employee records. I make sure that two other test results come back before they can start at Worthington. I collect the new employee paper work and identifications for the I-9. I also set up interviews with the HR Respresentative at Worthington, I update all new employee information and all new applications.
I learned a lot of information that I could not be taught from school. I learned more about the different cultures that live around me, and how important it is to be very detailed orientated in this position. The most enjoyable part of this job is meeting different kinds of people throughout the orientations and other employees. – less
