    I have been working at Advantage Metals Recycling full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Advantage Metals Recycling offers execellent pay and benefits, and they’re second to none in job security. The company consists of a dozen locations, making relocation an option. Scrap metal recycling requires a safe working environment and AMR offers an outstanding workplace culture. Safety is, hands down, this company’s north star.

    Cons

    Commodities are, at times, a rollercoaster ride. Employees must be flexible, energetic and coachable. If they are, they’re rewarded with compensation, benefits and the opportunity to advance in an industry leading company.

    Advice to Management

    Effective management produces solid results in all environments and this particular management team has been able to do that. The path to those results has been slowly outward, with more people and teams slowly added to the decision making process. I hope that trend continues.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Advantage Metals Recycling full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits were pretty good. Luncheons every quarter. Training programs were up to date. The actual work was alright. Was in the process of updating equipment.

    Cons

    The maintenance shop was the oldest place I have ever seen. Built in the 1940's! Due to budget constraints we had to make do with sub standards material when working on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more open to "sharing" the opportunities for broadening your employees job knowledge/skills. By letting more people learn new skills will make them more of an asset to your company.
