At River Metals Recycling, we strive to be good neighbors, good stewards of the environment and a great place to do business.
Our employees, customers, communities and environment deserve nothing less than our very best every day.
We take pride in our company commitment to the:
We strive to be a good neighbor in the communities in which we do business. For example, all our facilities support local community fire departments, providing space and vehicles for firefighters training with “Jaws of Life”.
We work with fire and police departments, and have developed strong community partnerships with programs like:
Of all the relationships we’ve built since 1998, we are most proud of our work with local law enforcement. All across the nation, our employees are teaming up with local police officers and elected officials to tackle the important issue of combating metal theft. For starters, we digitally record every single transaction in our facilities. Police use this information to identify suspects and help keep crime out of our communities. Serving those who serve and protect.
We are deeply rooted in the communities where we do business and are respected for our integrity. Community residents and leaders know we have strict standards for what materials we’ll accept at our facilities. For example, we have the most comprehensive radiation detection system in the industry and have received awards for our performance in this field. We make it easy for customers to drop off ferrous or nonferrous scrap and get paid quickly and reliably. We also help communities maximize their tax base, while minimizing their local environmental footprint.
At RMR, we recognize the pressures and challenges employees face when trying to balance work and home life. We also understand that our employees are better able to meet the demands of their jobs when their own personal needs are being met. Because we value the time employees commit to our team, we offer competitive compensation including bonus opportunities and an excellent benefits package:
When we – the nearly 250 employees of RMR – look at scrap, we don’t see heaps of rusty, old metal. We see potential. Potential for shiny new cars and appliances. Potential for affordable feedstock for production. And of course, for conserving energy and creating a cleaner environment. Then we go to work, harnessing all that potential with the best technology in the business.
Working here creates a sense of loyalty. Maybe it’s because we know we’re making a real difference in the world…in our communities…for our customers…and for the environment. We’re passionate about our business and about building relationships that stand the test of time. We’re hands-on self-starters who thrive on opportunities, challenges and have a strong work ethic. And of course, we’re competitive. Yet first and foremost, we’re team players.
RMR offers many challenging opportunities for both men and women seeking a career in recycling, construction, manufacturing or operating heavy equipment.
I have been working at River Metals Recycling full-time (Less than a year)
River Metals Recycling truly invests in their employees. The most important thing is that everyone is safe and returns home the way the come into work each day. In addition, there are very structured safety trainings and opportunities for professional development. Being owned by David J Joseph opens up your professional options across all business functions and locations throughout the US. If you're looking to work at a place with a family culture that has the mindset on doing things the right way, this is a great place to work.
None for me. However, working in a position where you're outside in the elements isn't for everyone.
Advice to Management
Never settle and continue to invest in safety
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at River Metals Recycling (Newport, KY) in May 2016.
They just basically ask you why do you want this job also what they expect of you to do and how much do you want a hour. Plus they will give you a tour of the place and if you have any equipment experience they will test you to see if you can operate it.
