Scale Operator (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 7, 2018
The benefits and pay were decent but they over work you and treat each other like garbage. I was told a different pay rate when I interviewed than when I got the call letting me know I got the job. On the first day of employment I was investigated by management about two other employees that had got into an altercation in which I played no role in. Management was not flexible when I encountered a serious family emergency and then went back on it after I put my two-week notice in. The guy whom I took most of the direction from there would erroneously tell me to do a task and then come back and chew me out after that task had been completed. He would come into my department yelling and throwing doors as if the job itself wasn't stressful enough, much less his mistake. You are expected to do a fast-paced job on a time sensitive schedule for a job that was originally designated for two people and you are belittled if you make a rectifiable mistake, even if that mistake isn't your own. On your final day of your two-weeks they will let you go before the shift starts as a "we let you go, not you quit on us." I was there two months after getting hired on and while the job could have been suitable for me, I felt that I had compromised far too much for the pay and the treatment I was receiving there. Management focuses too much on what employees do outside of work and not enough on what happens on premises --> and no I never came into work hung over. Would definitely not recommend this place until they let some bad apples go.

Supervisor choose who he wants to give points too. He shows a lot of favoritism towards different race... I don't think we are being treated fairly.. it's really sad when you have to go to work unhappy.. I really don't think he needs to be a supervisor. Lots of decrimination going on .. really think it needs to be looked into....
The culture changed from being friendly and collaborative to political and elitist. As in every company the department that you work plays a big part in the culture so ask questions during interviews to the hiring manager.
Driver/Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Dallas, Tx – March 6, 2018
As I was told by the Branch Mananger when I applied to a supervisor role. “When I give someone a job, I expect to get something out of them.” Seems more of a place to advance if you know the right people.
Company has great intention and a vision to become a leader in their field. However company does not do a very good job of recognizing and cultivating employees strengths or have career plans for employee growth.
Class B Hydraulics Mechanic (Current Employee) – Seguin, TX – February 28, 2018
Very safe place to work, very family oriented with friendly faces all over the plant that want to get to know you. Although it's a steel mill, I would recommend anyone start out with Commercial Metals.
cashier, product ordering, daily cash report (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – February 19, 2018
I enjoyed working at CMC because of the work environment and management. They treated you like family and really cared for their employees. I was taught a lot about inside sales and how to maintain inventory and the ordering process. I also had a big hand in maintaining good relationships with some of the accounts. Product knowledge was very important so I learned how to study about the products and apply that knowledge to the sales part of my job.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – February 11, 2018
A typical day at work is loading and unloading semi trucks with rebar and support other departments. What I learned from CMC was how to operate in a safe manner various forklifts, semi truck, and propane torch. The work place culture was fast paced and easy-going. The hardest part of the job was the 60 hour weeks. The most enjoyable part of the job was all of the benefits and overtime.
The company has recently passed its centennial mark and is still moving forward in its industry. They have various business world wide. The culture is growing and that is what will continue to make a world of difference in its growth.
