Lot of time in. Not enough pay increase or advancements

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If your looking for a non-union job( why)this for you. While I worked there(Porter) we tried to get the union in and Worthington successfully ‘busted’ it. The lower pay and little advancement will continue as long as they keep the unions out. I was unhappy working there because I was just a number. Employees were pent against one another through peer reviews. Totally unfair. Someone else trying to get ahead of you or holding a grudge give you bad peer reviews keeping you from the maximum meager raise. Lots of people were maxed out on there pay scales for years. Not a bright future

Pros

Work under your supervision mostly

Cons

Poor compensation, very slow progression of raises.(sqeeze)

how i felt working there

management Is terrible, the older employees get away with working less , taking longer breaks. too much chatter about rumors. not enough togetherness or team work. cant trust management to actually look out for you. they aren't honest about everything far their needs for employment which is why they have a turn over rate. management operates without including the council which is a joke. nobody is actually clear on how to advance and be successful, it's a lot of paper work and not enough action. it's most definitely not a place for anyone black. its very few blacks that work there. in my opinion that place needs better leadership

Very Stressful place to Work

Had to band steel coils so that they would not come undone. They were a very fast paced plant slitting steel coils down. Some of the steel was very hard to bend, due to the thickness of the steel. Had to use an overhead crane to move some of the steel coils around and to band them.

This was once a great company.

This was once one of the best companies in the country to work for until the founder retired and handed the keys to his son. Everything went down hill from that point. People started leaving in massive amounts and the company thought this was a great thing because they could hire people for less money. They did not understand that the people leaving had the knowledge to keep them profitable. It quickly turned into a company that is looking for ways to save money instead of how to make it.. While there is nothing wrong with saving money the idea is to MAKE it.

Cons

Poor employee relations, low pay, reducing benifits, "don't care" attitude

Productive workplace with a indoor fitness area

Worthington Steel is a nice place to work. Management is always willing to help as were my coworkers. Here team work is a big part of the job. More than anything, here I leaned to work as safe as possible, due to the danger level.

Pros

great wellness program

Cons

very dirty and dangerous place.

Everyone is dedicated to complete customer satisfaction.

The advantage to Worthington is that the management gives you the ability to make decisions to satisfy the customer and are willing to help you follow through doing so. My co-workers were never to busy to lend a hand and were always willing to set aside what they were working on to help.

Pros

flexible work schedule.

Cons

cross training.
