    Carbon Setter (Current Employee)
    Robards, KY

    Prosgood pay, benefits,good people to work with

    Consheat,too many stupid rules if you dont follow they will fire you over little things thats what happened to me

    Advice to Senior Managementyour probationary period is too long, treat your employees better give new hires more chance before you fire them over something small

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Century Aluminum is a non-family oriented facility that treats employees as doormats and numbers ans not as human beings

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey give you a minimum paycheck on Wednesdays but you can not pick it up before 2 p.m. at the Guardhouse. You have basic healthcare and not much more.,

    Consno communication, lack of committment from management for long term of facility, poor management decisions, continually stepping on the collective bargained agreement, lack of respect for employees and their families, production before safety mentality

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are an assett and at Hawesville on a daily basis they are treated like doormats it would be nice to work in a facility that appreciated the employees for the millions and millions of dollars they are making for the fat cats in Monterey, California enabling them to build their newest smelters in Iceland

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
