    I have been working at Quanex Building Products full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits vs pay are okay Coworkers at various departments tend to be supportive; can't say the same for management

    Cons

    Company treats people like crap; if you want to contact HR, good luck;; doubly so if you notice a safety or OSHA violation Incident (accident) reports are ignored (or, at best, you'll get an interrogation with 0 follow up) As a new employee, you get an orange vest: not expected to know everything or be fast enough, but it's a lie; be constantly asked why you're not moving faster Serious disconnect between production floor and management
