    I have been working at Gerdau full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good bonus, Vacation is decent, they do have some nice benefits and you have the opportunity to meet some very hard workers and make some great friends.

    Cons

    The Gerdau Petersburg Virginia Plant care nothing of their employees, most managers are uneducated and very narrow minded. They have the belief, do as I say not as I do. Their Human Resource department is more like In Human Resource, they do not fight for the employees they work with the managers, who they socialize with. They do not listen to the production employees. All they want to do is look good to the community by signing up for all these community activities while treating their employees like crap. There has been many occasions of my years working here that I have seen of them actually violating employees rights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think most of the managers should be looked at and those that lied on their application about their qualifications should be fired. Why not ask the employees who actually do the job what are the best changes that need to be made in their department instead of asking managers or facilitators, or office personal what they think should be done in their department and they do not know the employees jobs or how to do the job.
