    I worked at Earle M. Jorgensen part-time

    Pros

    Positive place to work. Everyone seemed cool and helpful in guiding me in the right direction as a warehouse support person. This was only a temporary position. But the short time I was there it seemed like a good company.

    Cons

    Difficult to get hired on full time as a union member. Working through the temp agency had me doing jobs that other guys were getting twice what I was being paid.

    Advice to Management

    Stop working with temps so much. Aleviate your frustrations with temp employee performance and hire a full time "support" person who can move around the warehouse doing a bunch of odd jobs and provide them a pathway to and through the union.

    I worked at Earle M. Jorgensen full-time

    Pros

    Solid employer, good team of people to work with. Clean enviroment. Good befinits package.

    Cons

    Not alot of room for advancement. Due to being a solid place to work there is not much turn over, and not much company growth in the department I was in that would allow for it.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great.

    I worked at Earle M. Jorgensen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good bennifits, great people to work with. Hours of operation are reasonable. Decent hours per pay period. Paid weekly.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to move up in the company. Hated always having to wear a hard hat while inside the warehouse, even though I understood the necessity.

    Advice to Management

    The hourly rate should increase proportionately with the national cost of living rates.

    I worked at Earle M. Jorgensen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) Even if you are not a sales person, management still has the ability to put in for bonuses for you. This was great because it was a way for management to reward hardwork
    2) They often would buy lunch for the employees depending upon what was happening in the office, lunch was often provided once a week sometimes more
    3) You get paid weekly so it helped
    4) It is MOSTLY a monday to friday job

    Cons

    Their employees work very hard, I would even come in on weekends or stay after hours because I was helping the warehouse or the sales department. However, the managers have access to your time clock and would adjust it if they didnt feel the need was required for that overtime. I cant tell you how many times I had to fight payroll. I started to take a picture of my time clock stamp and date every single day so I had proof of my clock in/lunch and clock out.

    They also have horrible salaries, for the area that I lived in and the amount of work I did, I was never once given a raise when I was told that we would get them in certain months of the year. I struggled every week try to put food on the table because I was making the same amount as someone at burger king.

    Dont even think about transferring branches or moving up into a different position unless you have been there for years. They say that they would pay for your schooling but it has to be related to the business and there has to be an open position for you in the area you want to transfer to, otherwise HR will deny your request

    Most of the people who work for EMJ are older because they have been there forever. Unfortunately with the changing times they are not very flexible when it comes to adapting to the needs of their employees. They can be very harsh, if not rude all the time. They will tell you that they are like a family but when something happens to you they dont care. You could literally be in the hospital (with proper documentation and all) and they will ask you if you will be coming back to work for the remainder of the day.

    They hire and promote people that should not be in those positions. More experience and discipline is needed. When an entire warehouse and office of people dont respect you and you were the only person who applied for a position then it brings to question why didnt anybody want the position to begin with? They will literally throw anybody into a spot just to fill it!

    There are a lot of harassment and ethical issues within this company, everything gets overlooked and pushed under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to your employees more. If your employees are happy then your business will do good. the employees have a horrible work life balance. More training needs to be done for new employees or employees who are covering certain areas
