Not a fun work placegoing
A Operator Roller (Current Employee) –  Elmore, OHAugust 1, 2018
Going to work and making sure that my partner and myself stay safe wear the proper PPE. That the machine stays running it's a good day! The hardest part about the job is when we don't have coils to roll, don't like not working. The challenge of getting a perfect flat coil out is the most enjoyable part of my job!
Pros
Get lunch vouchers for safety procedure.
Cons
There are none!

Poor Management!
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Shoemakersville, PAJune 21, 2018
Poor Management, they don't care about there employees, and there is strong favoritism toward certain individuals. All employees are not treated equal. You can get terminated at anytime without just cause, or because someone else wants you to get fired and has connections with upper management. Overall awful place to work!
Pros
None!
Cons
Where should I start=:^(

Good entry level job
Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) –  NYJune 17, 2018
For recent grads this place offers low but decent pay for areas in chemistry, management and other business related degrees. Upper management is the only area in this company that seems to pay well while the workers who make everything happen get paid next to nothing to work very hard daily.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Low pay

Master Planner (Current Employee) –  Elmore, OHJune 13, 2018
Not a bad place to work despite the many safety precautions. The pay is generally good and the benefits are okay but getting worse. I have a great boss which is the reason I have stuck around for so long. He understands work life balance.
Pros
Great Boss
Cons
Showering at the end of the work day

Overall Pretty Good
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, RIMay 30, 2018
Company was a really good fit for the majority of my time there. Career advancement was excellent but due to personal reasons, including a difference in opinion with management, I felt it was time to move on.

"do more with less" attitude
Lathe Operator (Current Employee) –  Brewster NYApril 9, 2018
Management does not care about employees. Will do whatever it takes to get responsible off their shoulders and pass it off to the next person. There is no accountability between managers and the equipment is 15+ years old. Management and sales do not spend a second on the floor and have no idea what it takes to run and support the technicians/engineers and operators. Safety features on machines broken.

If you want to make a few bucks more than minimum wage for unfair work conditions, this is your place.
Pros
"free lunches"
Cons
Micromanagement

Customer Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYOctober 20, 2017
Working here wouldn't be bad if it wasn't for miserable people and terrible management. Management is moody and isn't afraid to show it! Rubs everyone the wrong way. The office is super caddy, including management. Micro-managing at its finest.
