    I have been working at Reliance Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and environment to work in. If you like long hours this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Hiring of drivers could be better. Some do not have enough experience.

    Advice to Management

    Need more ability to move upward.

    I worked at Reliance Steel (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very solid fortune 500 company. Job security is the best part of the company. They are well managed and have a very strong Corporate leadership group.

    Cons

    they have grown to fast and are losing contact with the ground level employees. Employees are starting to feel like they don't matter. Promotion opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the ground level, division employees. Corporate and division level managers need to show less arrogance and more concern for those who are really earning the money.

    I have been working at Reliance Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone treats each other like family and the benefits are pretty good. Room for advancement since this is a Fortune 300 company. Even though this is a traditional/conservative metals company, there is a fair amount of diversity in terms of gender, race, and sexual orientation. Many locations worldwide so it's great if you're in a position that lets you travel.

    Cons

    Highly political environment, especially when you consider how so many people around you are connected to those higher up. Some of the things that bother employees is how conservative the company is with its finances - especially when it comes to travel and expenses. This goes a long way in bringing employee morale down a few notches.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale isn't the best and Reliance is a company that makes over $8 billion a year, it wouldn't hurt to give employees incentives so that the family-oriented work environment continues to motivate them to stay on and grow.


  7. Small company, not a lot of growth. Good company to coast by with decent pay.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. They don't really push hard for numbers or anything, so pro or not depending on how you look at it. Everybody there is very nice, good people.

    Cons

    No room for growth or advancement internally.

    Advice to Management

    Push harder for expansion for new jobs from within.

    Pros

    Great Benefits Family oriented company Great Pay Hour Flexibility. Independence

    Cons

    Training for working in perforating was very minimal. Learn as you go along. Could prove costly to the company if you make a mistake quoting. 90% of employees have been here for 15+ years so being young, you are under a magnifying glass and scrutinized for your actions positive or negative. Havent had a raise in 1 year 7 months

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    ESOP... Adds up very quickly on top of your 401K. Great Medical, Fair Salary, Very Fair commisions. Very low employee turnover. Corporate Management one of the best. They understand the business. They understand how to make money. Business model works and it shows every earning report every quarter. Every Reliance business center is held accountable to earnings...

    Cons

    Very litte con's. Doing business in California is extremely difficult due to the Democratic knuckleheads ruining this state.... Manufacturing is dying in California.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
