      Pros

      Good benefits, short term disability, you get to see some incredible sights

      Cons

      Unclear reporting structure, cash flow problems. as of this writing they have sold 5 of their 15 mills. Lay offs were constant the entire 5 years I was there. Alot of turnover, I had 5 bosses over 5 years. The procurement is actually done by the plants and the buyer just processes whatever they are told to. If you see a buyer that works there rest assured they have done nothing more than place spot PO's. Brazilian CEO caught up in operation zealot in Brazil.

      Pros

      You are free to excel, improvise, implement, and execute YOUR ideas to make the operations better, you can earn "points" for YOUR ideas which can be turned over to $$$$, VERY GOOD starting pay, VERY GOOD benefits, YOU WILL be fired for safety violations, drugs, alcohol, etc.... ON THE SPOT! This is good for the safety of others) Advancement opportunity's are there also if want to go for them.... choice is YOURS! Overall... good stable employment, With a very decent pay structure, starting pay is about double of minimum starting elsewhere....

      Cons

      YOU WILL be freezing your butt off in the winter if you are blue collar worker out in the mill or melt shop, YOU WILL be sweating your butt off in the summer if you are a blue collar worker in the mill or melt shop, but........ the money is there, if YOU are willing to work,
