I have been working at Metal Sales Manufacturing full-time
The company is trying hard to improve itself. Some good recent hires in management are working to change a negative culture. Building a true team environment doesn't happen overnight, though. A number of good, long term employees in the trenches who really care.
Ownership is too involved in day-to-day activities. Need to be more realistic regarding growth targets. Show more "carrot" and less "stick".
Advice to Management
This is a large company that needs to be run by professionals. Let your good hires apply their experience from other industrial companies. It will expedite the improvement and successes.

I applied online. I interviewed at Metal Sales Manufacturing.
I submiited online for a senior leadership position. I sent a resume and then an onsite interview was scheduled. I interviewed, checked with my professional network and ultimately declined any further activity, given my experience.
- Pretty straight forward. As with other reviews, questions about experience with 'difficult ownership' or 'a company in transition'. Got the feeling the current CEO (acting President...they've had three in three years) was not long for the MSMC world, the way everyone talked. The owner I interviewed with (and this is why I felt the need to submit this) was one pretty arrogant dude, given that his Dad started the company and that his three older brothers have led it pretty well, before he took over.I read the other comments and did my diligence-spoke with building industry colleagues and 'banking community'......We all face our own decisions and have different appetites for company cultures but this was not a place for me. Asked about employer turnover (which is reportedly over 50% within 24 months) and was told, effectively 'a lot of companies have high turnover'.....the fact that there are challenges there isn't the issue; it's the ownerships laisez faire attitude to addressing them that's concerning.....makes sense given their lack of professional context. Lastly, the CEO bragged about education so I checked......his school was a college when he went there and although a University now..ranked 583 in the US in his field. And his MBA? From a school not even ranked. Where one went to school...who cares...but bragging about it when....? Be careful. 1 Answer
