    Pros

    Steel Tech has wonderful benefits, excellent people working for them, many policies that are meant to maintain a healthy, happy workplace and work-life balance. It's working. It's the first company where I've worked that has more happy people than unhappy people.

    Cons

    As with most corporate environments, there is a bit of the typical being promoted by who you know and not necessarily what you are doing or are capable of.

    I worked at Steel Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It was only good experience and for a first job. Some of the people there were cool. Thats about it.

    Cons

    You are very under paid compared to other companies that have you do the same jobs. Very poor training. Having you work alot of different machines without training you on it. While i was learning a new machine the trainer stepped outside to go smoke a cigarette while i didnt know how to operate it.

    Advice to Management

    Have better training program. Make sure the person who is training you actually cares to train someone new. Also dont make new workers learn every machine within the first day of working there.

    I worked at Steel Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Steel Tech is a company filled with good people trying to solve customer problems every day. It's a sales driven organization that wants to grow and treat people well.

    Cons

    It's a tough industry that goes through cycles, similar to automotive. Their business systems are old.

    I worked at Steel Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    one of the pros to work with this company are the like-minded coworkers typical to this line of work. strong-willed and helpful.

    Cons

    One of the downsides to working for this company, at least in my experience, is the lack of downward communication. only the GM has any idea of whats going on; supervisors, managers, team leaders, etc have no idea what to expect day to day, until it is too late

    Advice to Management

    as per my "Cons" communication is key to a great work experience as well as leading to better work being done...

    Pros

    Quality products; numerous facilities across the US, Mexico & Canada; some really great people. Pay & benefits top of the line.

    Cons

    Communication issues; lack of listening to issues; taking sides without hearing the complete issues. Senior management making promises that were not kept.

    Advice to Management

    If you give a manager the power to make an agreement, stand by it; don't fall down on promises. If a manager is out of line, repremand them or get rid of them. Do not take it out on their team.
