Over all great place to work.
Overhead Crane Operator, Order Puller (Former Employee) –  Grand Prairie, TXOctober 11, 2019
Typical day at O'Neal clock in get pick list. Start pulling orders on 2nd shift for 3rd shift to load outbound trucks. I learned how to use a overhead crane to pull orders and load/unload semi trucks. Work place culture is Fast pace, intense, hard work, and long hours. The hardest part of the job is the long hours in open door warehouse. If it is hot outside it is hotter inside, and same for the cold just as cold inside. The most enjoyable part is the paid breaks and ability to bring small speaker( no headphones).
Pros
Great pay. Great benefits.
Cons
Long hours shorter time with family.

I never like working at oniel ... The temperatures are harsh... The PPE wasn't reliable... They have no compassion for personal life issues. They will fire u on the spot with no fair reason at all.
Pros

Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCSeptember 15, 2019
Good pay, horrible work environment. Work to life balance...yea right! Pretty much slaves there and Ill be glad to speak to anyone who wants to know why. HR and upper management dont care about the workers. You have to pretty much die for them to understand anything.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
10 minute break, 30 minute lunch. Forced overtime. Horrible management. They look to fire you, you come to work not knowing if you will make it through the day.

Saw Operator/Forklift Operator/Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Shelbyville, INSeptember 8, 2019
Oneal Steel was a great learning experience. Their supervisors were always handy for questions and eager to keep teaching you more and more. Certifications were easy to come by. Moving up was a reachable goal.

If you can over look a few things i.e. respect Then great place to work
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 21, 2019
A typical work day starts early if your on 1st shift , but if on 2nd shift your work day starts later . The work day will consist of a meeting to were any an all Q.C. issues of production parts can be addressed . You will also be given an up to date status of your own personal production percentage ,as well as the overall percentage of the various work production stations i.e. welding ,Burner ,Parts cleaning stations etc. . So what ever the percentage is that's set forth based on overall production Needs you as part of the production crew will need to be ok with very high stressful ,and demanding conditions . Over all the company is a good company with good benefits . The safety program is on par as its taken very serious . The hard portion of this job however fall to more or less not so much the actual job task ,and or assignments performed. As the various position comes with their varying degree of difficulties based on experience an time doing. The hardest part oddly enough falls on the lack of respect common courtesy an basic decency that you would expect in any employment situation were close working conditions an long hours , would make even the hardest of jobs appear much easier overall if respect was more on par with the high production percentage that's demanded of the production floor! Any enjoyment found would be quickly snuffed out from repeated negative interactions from supervisors. So moral of workers basically is a thing in constant term oil , although the co-workers relationships formed their in are very good .. Things learned was how not to interact  more... with any person on the leadership or supervisor team's unless absolutely needed.
So in closing this job although not perfect will keep you employed even when the job market slows down , your guaranteed 40 an just so long as you don't get safety violations or late for work ,and don't mind conditions to were your not treated with the upmost respect etc. then this may be a good fit for you ..

Not a company I would recommend.
Corporate Employee (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALAugust 20, 2019
It was a very closed culture with the majority of employees with a tenure of 25+ yrs. They were very controlling of how things were done, not accepting of new employees or new ideas. It is a "we do it this way" culture. Very old school. Depressing environment of old green cubicles, dim lighting, and a good ole boy network that is thriving.

They will also cut a well performing employee to bring in a friend who needs a job. Not the company that Craft O'Neal had originally founded.
Lots of back stabbing.

Apply to another company.

Loader (Former Employee) –  Chickasaw, ALJuly 16, 2019
Oneal is a nice place. I enjoyed my time there. Management was great except for a certain supervisor. The team was a nice group of people. Most employees have been there for 10 years or more

Most of the people there are great to work with, those who've been there awhile, not the new ones.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCJune 10, 2019
I loved my job and my coworkers there, but then they started hiring criminals
and escorts and that's when things started getting bad! They hire in escorts
for their own personal pleasure in management and they don't have a clue how to do the job they were supposed to be hired for and are allowed to sit in quality lab and do nothing but hold down a chair! They keep firing all the experinced ,hardworking, dedicated employees and replacing them with lazy,criminal, immoral people!Used to be a good place to work, but not anymore, but if you like walking on eggshells waiting for an axe to drop on your neck, then O'Neal is the place to work!
Pros
Coworkers, pay, benefits
Cons
Job security is a joke.

I was a credit manager. I reviewed orders and credit requests on a daily basis. It was a really good company to work for. I'd work for O'Neal again if given the opportunity.

wharehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Shelbyville, INMarch 16, 2019
Work there for 20 plus years! New managment doesnt care about employees! No advancement unless your in good with management.

Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Management just plain Dirty!
