    I have been working at Vallourec full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Underpaid for all the mind games played by management, but a descent stepping stone to work elsewhere.

    Cons

    They call themselves "Made in America", Let me say.. Americans should literally investigate companies like these that take advantage of impoverished areas of the country by paying descent wages, but making Americans work like 3rd World citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoring your laziest workers by allowing them to do the easiest jobs day after day, while the workers with no connections to upper management make production and make the company all the money with their blood, sweat, and tears. Just look at your cameras the last 7 yrs. and analyze if you think I'm just being dramatic. I'm absolutely positive you'll see the same workers standing and staring off into their phones...

    I have been working at Vallourec full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Enough money to get by on, and decent benefits ,but you work like a slave for it if you don't have "connections " with upper management.

    Cons

    Terrible H.R and Plant Managrment. They do not make sure everyone does their share of the work. No honesty or integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Find out which jobs are the most physically and mentally demanding and make sure those jobs are rotated. STOP favoritism!! Make honesty number 1!

    Compensate sales administrators more. They do bulk of work. Quoting and customer service follow up. They make manager job easier.

    I have been working at Vallourec full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. The pay is good too. But there are too many stuck up people that work here, mainly bosses

    Cons

    Swing shift and going back and forth from days to nights. It's hard to get used to it.

    Advice to Management

    Screen and choose bosses carefully. One boss in particular has been in trouble for not locking out machines and having guys in lock out areas. Yet he still continues to make us work in restricted lock out areas without having the machine properly locked out. Vallourec Youngstown FQM
