Support from management

On more than once, management gave fake shipping dates so project would be expedited. Completed projects would sit on shipping pallet for weeks and take up needed floor space.

Teamwork

New employees were seldom given training on equipment and project tribal knowledge.

Freedom to work independently

Some degree of micromanagement from supervisor but work area had a degree of personalizing.

Internal Communication

Management have been very misleading in project priorities.

Gender Equality

The one woman was hired and quit after 20 days of harassment.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Never saw any new employees over 30 years old. Employees with 10+ years were very appreciated which accounted for high turnover with employees under 5 years.

Career Development

Job roles were very set and no interest from management on additional training.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was reasonable but never experience a pay raise. 401k match was very low.

Work-Life Balance

50 hour workweeks were divided into 10 hour days.

Company Image

Very poor comments from employees when discussing the company. Subject was often avoided.

Job Security

Layoffs were seldom but still happened. During lean times, work hours were cut back.

Handicapped Accessibility

Little, if any, accessibility for the disabled but in welding fabrication, that is difficult to achieve.

Workplace Safety

Accidents are common place and OSHA has fined Scott Metals inc several times.

Challenging Work

Finishing an order that had 500 units created a feeling of accomplishment but was short lived when a new projected was immediately assigned with little break time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should give accurate priorities and not grade all projects as "ultra rush" and "ultra high rush". Management should not give false shipping dates to create work stress then leave completed projects sitting pallets for weeks were they risk being damaged by forklift traffic.

What I like about the company

Daylight shift started early in the morning which provided early clockout time.

What I dislike about the company

Toxic work environment, both from management and other employees. Little training to new employees on safety procedures. No exchange of tribal knowledge from senior employees to others. Difficult to determine workload estimation : in compressing 12 hours of work into a 10 hour day vs spreading out 3 hours of work into a 10 hour day.
