E-Commerce Administrator in Minneapolis, MN
The day to day tasks are a bit monotonous. Management is encouraging and wants to see their team succeed. I really appreciated the paid volunteer days and the multiple opportunities to help the community. The company spans the entire US, but still feels tight-knit. I worked for two different teams while employed with Ryerson and the dynamic was different for each branch.
Inside Sales Account Manager, Fabrication Division in Coon Rapids, MN
The culture in the Columbus Ohio sales office is toxic. Sales manager lives in another state providing minimal support. Training is limited to making mistakes and learning the hard way, trial and error.
Billing/Production Specialist in Norcross, GA 30071
I worked for Ryerson for roughly 6 years. The job culture there is great. Never any drama, everyone treats you like family instead of just an employee number. Great benefits as well as job training.
Inside Sales Specialist in North Kansas City, MO
They are a solid and well established company but dont except them to care to much about your success. Took the job having inside sales, sales support, customer service experience but no knowledge of the metals industry. Was told they would teach me and train me into being a long term inside sales agent. Over all it could have been a great opportunity if the direct supervisor was willing to do ANY sort of training, coaching and one of one directing. I was basically given a full desk of clients after sitting with my coworkers for a couple months and was excepted to learn everything on the job. Very much a learn as you go job but needed more training and care from management in order to succeed. Direct supervisor was cold, unhappy and no where near a leader. never reached out to me for how I was doing, to teach me anything extra or put forth any extra effort towards my success. Then I was let go for "not being the right fit".
Code Welder in Houston, TX
They hired myself and at least 4 others while i was there to a position under which we applied for to "get you in the door" then leave you there. No advancements, in position or pay.All complaints have to go to the corporate HR cause the only person in the shop that comes close is tasked with QC, Procurement, and Environmental, Health, and Safety.You won't se the production manager but once a month and will typically be him coming out to pull someone aside and scolding them with out ever involving their manager. A mom and pop shop backed by big money. All suggestions fell on deaf ears until someone actually from Ryerson showed up, then it was done such half-assed it only cost more money. Ryerson - go to the source they are much more informed then management.
