    Pros

    The family type enviorment is a very big reason i feel so comfortable working there. There are many opportunities for advancment, and theres always new things happening. A large variety of jobs to do.

    Cons

    It's still a job where you are punching a clock on a set schedule. And like any job, there are always people who are only punching a clock, not there to do their best or give their best effort! They just want to get their eight hrs in and go home! They just want that check at the end of the week. That is probably the hardest thing to deal with. Overall it's a great place to work!

    I worked at Metals USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits package was great, and as an outside sales rep I had the freedom to work at my own pace and schedule. Some days were more productive than others based on how my appointments were scheduled

    Cons

    I was always in fear of losing my job because of the way the managers talked about the failing oil and gas industry. I eventually did...

    Advice to Management

    Do not over promise and under deliver!

    I have been working at Metals USA full-time

    Pros

    Weekly pay, lots of days off for holidays, great PTO package after 6 months. Very relaxed work environment with a small crew.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunity to advance further. Some employees receive "special treatment". Management seems too preoccupied with other things at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make everyone feel as important as the next person. No favoritism.

    Wide variety of products to sell at competitive pricing. Management seems to head in the right direction. Benefits are also starting to get better.

    Cons

    In the past sales has had to counter with customers some of the crazy things that the president of the company tells the media.

    Pros

    Good pay benefits and extras. You'll enjoy the family style environment and all that metals USA offers its employees. They take care of their people.

    Cons

    Hot sweaty redundant work. Also the steel industry is a "good ole boys" club- most of these men and women have been doing this for their entire lives and so have their fathers and mothers- it's hard to get in because they hand pick their people from their family and friend groups.
