    I worked at Kloeckner Metals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with (within my department). I heard that quite a few managers have been let go

    Cons

    Terrible management let the branch go from a gold mine to a company scrambling to deliver orders on time (usually were always afternoon deliveries when they should have been morning)

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking away every incentive to work hard and quit being so secretive about the direction you want to take the company

    I have been working at Kloeckner Metals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours.
    Steady work and job security.
    Decent pay if work performance is adequate.

    Cons

    Upper management (at this location atleast), turns a blind eye to harassment committed by middle management. This harassment promotes an unsafe work enviroment and at times is sexual in nature and borderline physical. At the multiple opportunities to punish this behavior upper management acts incredibly lenient.

    Advice to Management

    Take reign of your out of control supervisors, they're a lawsuit waiting to happen.
