    I worked at North American Stainless full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Upper Management were good to work for and seemed to want to improve operations and stood behind internal audit in relation to findings and recommendations. Benefits were excellent.

    Cons

    Internal Auditor reporting structure was counter to standard practice and had the potential to limit the objectivity of the Auditor. Pay was low compared to other internal audit shops in the area. Manager of internal audit did not have a background in internal audit and therefore training and growth were extremely limited.

    Advice to Management

    Have the Internal Auditor report to someone other than the Treasurer of the company. Increase compensation to match the area in which you operate.

    I have been working at North American Stainless full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great for the area and a solid paycheck, The benefits are great compared to the area although they get less every year.
    We get a good 401k match and a 401k bonus every year

    Cons

    Paperwork and red tape slow work down to a crawl. Can't get material or time to perform maintenance.
    Management is hard to get a hold of and blame always gets placed on someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Don't complain about broken equipment when we aren't allowed to fix them.

    I worked at North American Stainless (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Insurance is not the best but is ok. Top notch steel mill. Great teammates to work with.

    Cons

    Low morale and poor working conditions. I dd many things I was asked that were definitely not very safe and I did it out of fear for my job.

    Advice to Management

    Improve morale and safety everywhere. We all want to go home to our family.

    I worked at North American Stainless full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Made really good money ok insurance

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees. Swing shift rotation is awful. You will always be on swing shift. Nights to days in same week awful. Your family will never see you. Not a job for someone who has a family trust me!!!

    Advice to Management

    Show you care instead of being scared of the president. Since he tells everybody that he will fire them if they don't do what he tells you to.

    I worked at North American Stainless full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay. Great Benefits.....Some of the people there are best I've ever met

    Cons

    Bullying by managers/leaders. Unsafe........Worked there for ten years. Was a line leader....was bullied into maneuvering around EPA audits and ...long story short..Very unethical place to work. Moral ridiculously low. There's so many resumes and applications waiting to get in they no they can treat you horrible. Extremely high turnover rate but I actually now am pretty sure that is part of the plan

    Advice to Management

    It starts too high and is too ingrained in the culture to change anything......I wouldn't let a friend or family member work there

    Pros

    Good money, insurance and job security.

    Cons

    Dangerous, moral is terrible, your just a number here, they block you from other local factory jobs, they try to intimidate their employees, high turn over rate, very hazardous chemicals and dusts you breathe and work in.

    Advice to Management

    Replace human resources and safety manager, get some one in here who cares for the employees. Moral is at all time low here.

    Pros

    Gain experience for resume. Great place for hourly people.

    Cons

    Very little chance of promotion as an engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Some sort of career development program should be implimented to give you technical employees a way to advanve their career without having to look at other companies to do so.
