PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT


In the countries where we operate, our constant focus must be on offering all employees the best possible opportunities for further development and offering ideal starting opportunities to new employees. 


 

We support our management and employees consistently in their professional development. Therefore we use our company´s own training centers for the targeted specialist and management employee development.



 
In addition, we have anchored the central significance of target-orientated personnel and management development for our corporate success as one of the four pillars of our long-term strategy. Throughout the Group, we have therefore been focusing as an initial step on internationally collaborative HR activities. By introducing a group-wide Management Competence Model, our managerial employees are provided in their Management Review with annual feedback with regard to their performance and development options.
 
For us, occupational development means the targeted promotion and support of employees. It is therefore important to us that employees also play their role and act under their own initiative and as a result are dedicated to their own development – and are prepared, at times, to leave their "comfort zone."


CORPORATE CULTURE


The Code of Conduct, which is at the core of our corporate culture, defines our fundamental ethical values. Our overriding guiding principle is based on our unwavering policy of maintaining our competitive position through the quality of our service and not through corruption, price fixing or similar measures that will not be tolerated. I would like to dispel all doubt at this point: anyone who seeks commercial success through the use of such measures is severely damaging the Company’s interests and must thus reckon with immediate consequences.
 
This clear Code of Conduct and our Compliance Program releases you from any questions of doubt. However, should you have any questions you can contact the company Compliance Officer in the US or contact the Corporate Compliance Office in Duisburg, Germany. These sources will provide a clear and unambiguous response.
 
The same applies if you discover a breach of the Code. We do not wish to create a culture of mistrust, but it is your duty to report a breach in such a case. Nobody should fear reprisals for having done so.
 
We can only be successful if we offer our customers the best service and are reliable partners to our suppliers. At the same time, through these clear rules of conduct we also aim to protect you as an employee, generate added value for our shareholders and support society as a whole.
 
We are certain this Code of Conduct will ensure that we are well equipped for the future. We can only implement these principles in everyday life if we work together as a team.

DIVERSITY


Kloeckner Metals Corporation strives to recruit and retain top talent, enabling us to provide exceptional service to our customers. Our dynamic and thorough recruiting strategy helps us identify the best possible candidates for our positions. We are committed to excellence and it shows in our hiring process, orientation, employee development, and competitive benefits package. Kloeckner Metals provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kloeckner Metals (Tulsa, OK) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Office manager pretty much just wanted to know what my desired salary would be. I had to press for details of position and expectations. She called day before, we met next day. Was impressed with my resume but position would pay 37% less than I previously made. Apparently they pay the Sales staff better.
