I worked at Olympic Steel full-time (less than an year)

Pros

It was an learning experience. I learned some great skills in many different areas.

Cons

poor communication between departments. poor training . open door policy seemed helpful but not really since lots of things were swept under the rug. time clocks weren't accurate even though many employees complained about the inaccurate time clocks which caused points. the direction of employees by management was lacking

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication is a must between all departments. training or trainers who care about there job.

    I worked at Olympic Steel full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, and some of the co-workers haven't bought into the negativity yet.

    Cons

    Upper management is power-hungry, back-stabbing and at times totally insane. If you can work in the plant, far away from management, it's a decent job. Otherwise, I would advise anyone to run if they offer you a position. If you value your sanity and your self-respect, don't apply for a job in Detroit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit ! You are not fit to manage people.

    I worked at Olympic Steel

    Pros

    Convenient location, pay and benefits are decent

    Cons

    Terrible professionalism, highschool-style office environment (gossip, clicks, dog eat dog, etc.)
    This is not a place you can be proud of, unless running over and throwing co-workers under the bus works for you. The company does not train any level of management on how to supervise or manage, instead just promotes to position w/o the formal training needed to handle people pf diff. genders, ages, and /or races. Very male-dominated company, with a very aggressive, and sometimes volatile environment. Really keeps you uneasy, unless you become part of the many small clicks within (smh).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train from up down on all levels. Managers and supervisors alike, should be reqquired to have training in becoming a supervisor or manager. Team meetings would also be helpful, to ensure every1 is on same page, and communication is clear.
