    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in our department.
    Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Some departments have employees who seem to think doing their job is a chore and something they can drag their feet on. This is something you have to work around to get things accomplished at times.

    Advice to Management

    Set expectations for all employees that working with other areas is a requirement not a favor they are doing on whatever time schedule they feel like setting.

    Pros

    I have been working here for 19 years and I love Kloeckner Metals family and the versatility of my job. The benifits that Kloeckner Metals offer are amoung the best. Through the years I have learned so much in the steel business and would encourage anyone to come work with us that is interested in the steel business and want to work for a Great Company. I am so glad I came to work for Kloeckner Metals formally Namasco so long ago and My boss Gordon Self is the most amazing boss I have ever worked with or for.

    Cons

    Really I do not have any cons working at Kloeckner Metals

    Advice to Management

    Hats off to our managment team they are awesome
