Excellent exposure to heavy machinery operation and metals recycling industry.
SHREDDER MANAGER (Former Employee) – Kapolei, HI – August 15, 2018
Great place to work for hands-on experiences and exposure to a niche industry. Excellent balance between physical and mental labor. Also a great place to maintain a career, though not too much room for advancement.

Transporter (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 19, 2018
Horrendous management that uses bullying and intimidation tactics rather than actually managing. Zero family or home life as the hours expected to work are unrealistic and so stressful! Very hostile work environment with no team atmosphere or support. Was initially excited about joining the company and the union benefits it came with. I quickly learned that it's very cut throat and no amount of benefits sugar coats how far down they beat you as a person.
Benefits, company paid work boots and equipment.
Poor managememt, truly are a # and not a human being, worked like a dog with constant unrealistic expectations
Management (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – June 13, 2018
worked here for just under a year, pay is minimal, management is spread to thin. Benefits suck pay isn't good. No incentives for staff or management, lots of broken promises regarding pay. High turnover rate training is non existent
its a job
short breaks short lunches, dealing with violent customers every day, lazy co workers
Driver (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – January 25, 2018
I joined Schnitzer Steel for the benefits for my family. I quickly found that my co-workers were unwelcoming. I will only say that my job was in transportation in Tacoma, WA. Essentially, my co-workers (or equals) had talked badly about me so much, and threw me under the bus, that the management fired me for something I DID NOT do. The saddest part about the whole thing is that I trusted and confided in, a certain person of, the management. This was after quickly catching on to the culture of the work environment.. I was never late, never missed a day, and had. Zero prior warnings or offenses. Not to mention it was union lol.

Laborer (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 25, 2018
I have had my fair exchange of experiences working jobs, but none of that I can recall feeling so strongly about to where I feel the need to express myself with a review. I worked at the Portland location through a temp company swing shift in the shredder department for about two months. It was quite the experience working there!!! so much so I dont believe a review would be able to properly describe those experiences, while keeping it short, descriptive, and maintaing a since of professionalism & positivity even if your true feelings differ from that. I will say this (particurly to the managers of the shredd depart) any area that I lack in or may be a bit ineffective I can work on & improve each an every second. Its alot harder to improve Cowardness an lack of character well off into your later years it may just be who you are think about that.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Fife, WA – June 30, 2018
This used to be a great place to work but over the last four years the management has changed multiple times and the head doesnt know what the tail is doing, management has never done the jobs that the workers do but like to criticise the employees.
you have to get permission to turn a wrench, there afraid you might hurt yourself
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Johnston, RI – December 8, 2017
Pick n pull is a fun place to work and everyone on the production team are great guys and all get along Management sucks and constantly lie to the employees and don’t pay never give raises and barely receive bonuses for over working Management just lines they’re pockets while everyone else works hard
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Melt Shop – June 4, 2018
I feel this company has lots of employees that get away with things that most should never get away with who create hostile work environments and there are managers who cover it up. Others will take the fall. Horrible management
Laborer (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – August 16, 2018
Thought it was a great place at first and then realized that the general manager was an uneducated and incompetent liar that was threatened by my formal education and aspirations to become a GM. They will work you into the ground and only point out the bad. Terrible place to work.
Sorter (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 15, 2018
Terrible place to work for. Supervisors weren’t even trained on the lockout tag out process and spoke broken English. Magnet sucks and it’s so hard to get in touch with HR. Complete waste of time. If actually have skills that will benefit a company then don’t take them there.
Lots of gossip,drama, management if they like you you can move up in the company ,they tend to get rid of employees who are older and have been with the company a long time.decent benefits and over time. Management tells you what you want to hear then dissmiss's you .
