    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.

    Pros

    Good working environment, Good communication amongst the team

    Each branch was run independently, instead of having the uniformity that a large corporation should have

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the power of volume purchasing and work with the other branches as though they are coworkers instead of competing against them

    Pros

    Weekly pay, short commute to work.

    Cons

    Everything else. Management plays favorites and when they can not fix a problem. The wrong person/people are singled out. It's all about who you know. A guy there for 20+ years can not get S raise and was asked not to try to apply for a better position. Favoritism at its best

    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!
