Wonderful company, but unfortunate disconnect between branches and corporate
Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Bremen, OH – June 26, 2019
Let me start off with Worthington Industries (WI) being a wonderful place to work. It has absolutely wonderful policies for both hourly employees (who are actually on what they call "salary plan") and salaried employees. There's a wonderful culture there, and everyone is treated so well. The Golden Rule is actually one of WI's policies.
The one thing I will say though is that I started in October -- and was actually moved down there -- and was let go the next May. WI decided to stop doing business in the value stream for which I was hired, and several employees were let go without warning. No one at my branch knew until they were given packets with everyone's names on them. I was given an excellent severance package, and was told to please pursue other opportunities at Worthington, but it felt a bit hollow because I hadn't been given warning and there was no effort to place me elsewhere, despite the praise from several executives in the company. So now I am living here after they moved me, and got let go within a year of employment.
Excellent pay, transparency, salary plan for everyone
Average healthcare packages, only corporate really benefits from bonuses
