    I worked at O'Neal Steel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great People Great company. Management was awesome. Staff was very knowledgeable and fun to work with. I enjoyed working with everyone there and hate i couldn't continue on, however their commission structure wasn't good

    Cons

    Commission structure SUCKED seemed to be a frat that if you weren't in then you could never advance up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-look at your commission plan. confusing plan that never could figure out and hurt a lot of people when markets severely dropped

    I worked at O'Neal Steel full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free Gatorade and a $150 reimbursement on metatarsal boots

    Cons

    1. No Air Conditioning
    2. Treated like a stray dog
    3. Consistently breathing in carcenogenic Diesel Exhaust all day with limited ventilation
    4. Heat Exhaustion/Strokes can/will happen
    5. Unfriendly People working there
    6. Management is the worst I've ever seen. Memphis division manager is possibly the worst he treats employees and customers and non employees there to aid in projects, like crap

    7. The pay is not worth the work
    8. Forced to work at such a fast pace it is inhumane and not possible
    9. Machines are forced to be overloaded due to an amount of work for 200+ employees has been assigned to less than 20.

    10. Forced to work in humane hours 7 am to 12am and later everyday.
    11. Very limited breaks especially for the work and work conditions.
    12. You will be insulted about your intelligence and work skills by the management and co-workers
    13. Employees are worked to death. I have never seen such an unhappy team of workers.
    14. There is ZERO ABSOLUTELY ZERO room for advancement. They pick who they want to be in the next position up be it supervisor/associate manager. Its all about friends helping friends.
    15. Awful insurance and employee benefits. Basically a slap in the face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone and start over.

    I worked at O'Neal Steel full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits (not great ones). Ok pay and hours (if you can get a first shift job). Coworkers were great to work with. Relatively good communication between departments - most of the time.

    Cons

    Promotions and hiring based on politics, not merit. Work is terrible if you're a picker or an operator. When you point out the place that you work to others, they will probably say "Oh, I thought that place was abandoned."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what employees (not just managers) have to say. Stop rewarding sycophants over hard workers. Also, it's just bizarre to push the operators and pickers as hard as you do - that makes people less productive, not more.
