          I worked at Aleris International full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          I don’t really have anything positive to say about company except that work shift is great.

          Cons

          Inmates run the asylum! Union basically does what it wants and you have no backup from upper management.

          Advice to Management

          Doesn’t matter they won’t do anything anyway.
