    I have been working at Schnitzer Steel full-time (less than an year)


    Talented individuals-The current and incoming staff are incredibly talented and have made a tangible impact on the culture of the organization.
    Corporate culture-It is never easy for a 100 year old company to change, but Schnitzer is taking the steps necessary to make the changes. From new staff, to better communication they are working towards creating an amazing organization.
    Technology - Technology is up to date and and the workspaces are awesome. If you have an issue with your equipment it takes hours, not days or weeks to resolve.


    Change doesn't necessarily come quickly or easily. It takes time and effort to make things happen.
    Attitudes of some long-term employees are negative. They'd rather complain that play an active role in creating positive change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward. Make the hard decisions knowing they are the right decisions. Make sure your communication is clear. Most of all, make sure you hire the best staff across the country. Make sure your field leadership treats their staff well.

Your old car could end up as part of a Malaysian office building if Schnitzer Steel Industries gets its steel jaws on it. The company processes scrap steel and iron, which it obtains from sources such as auto salvage yards, industrial manufacturers, and metals brokers. The company sells more of that scrap to steelmakers in Asia than anywhere else; much of the rest goes to Schnitzer's own steelmaking business, including Cascade Steel Rolling Mills, which produces merchant bar, steel reinforcing bar, and other products at its mini-mill in Oregon.
