    I worked at Commercial Metals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fair compensation, good working environment, open communications are just a few of the reasons CMC was a good company to work for. They always had an eye for growth and weren't afraid to invest in needed infrastructure to get that done.

    Cons

    Earlier in the 2000's the company leadership was lacking but their ideas and direction were good. The culture was in need of changing and the route chosen to make those changes was flawed.

    Former Employee - Reinforcing Steel Detailer in Fredericksburg, VA

    I worked at Commercial Metals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with. I learned a lot about reinforced concrete and the construction business while working in the detailing department. Always harped on working safely.

    Cons

    The detailing department was under staffed. Expected to work a lot of overtime. Pay raises very small. Saw a lot of people come and go. Never really knew how I was doing or how to improve. Always implementing new ways to do things, hard to keep up.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Commercial Metals full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, regular hours, little to no supervision or direction on project or duties. Convenient location to most of DFW.

    Cons

    Not competitive on salary, little to no compassion for employees needs, unfriendly work environment, Company seems to lack direction for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a clear company directional plan for the corporate office, work in the field understand your employees needs, become more of the family oriented company that your reputation says you are. Previous employees will be happy to consult with the management to help you rebuild the company in a manner that will make current employees more satisfied with their jobs.

    I worked at Commercial Metals as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay well, willing to accept most applicants willing to work. You'll get paid well but also work really hard if you're actually someone making steel. Many interesting people to work with.

    Cons

    High chance your coworkers will be rude, obnoxious and not the smartest people around.
