    I have been working at David J. Joseph (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself is pretty enjoyable. Good balance of indoor/outdoor. Great team mates that are dedicated to getting the job done.

    Cons

    The hours! As a salary employee be prepared to put in 50+ hours a week easy. 60 hours (12hr/day) is common as well. There is NO work/home balance to be had. Hope you aren't in a serious relationship...

    Advice to Management

    Have realistic expectations maybe?

    I have been working at David J. Joseph full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    DJJ is a competent, fast-paced company with tons of room for vertical and horizontal mobility. As an ops manager, you work in an ever-changing, dynamic environment that focuses on process improvement and project management.

    Cons

    They ask a lot of you. I average between 50-60 hours a week as a salary employee.

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain transparency within the LLCs. Too many things happen "behind the scenes" that leaves workers and managers alike wondering.

    Good company to work for, relaxed work environment, great location in Downtown Cincinnati. Free parking in their private lot on the outer perimeter of downtown. Nice office environment.

    Niche industry (Scrap Metal) promotion from within could be limited at times due to roles being industry specific requiring prior experience.

    Look for ways for current employees to gain exposure to some roles that require experience to offer more room for internal job progression.
