    Pros

    Management had your back 99% of the time. They really do care about their employees. At the yard level it's like being part of a big dysfunctional family. That's a good thing, it breeds a sense of care for what everyone's doing. Great pay.

    Cons

    It's obviously a big corporation that's driven on numbers, so there are still big time decisions that are made to appease share holders in the parent company. But you'll get that on the big jobs.

    Pros

    Management is friendly, learn a lot of trades, feed you at least once a month, and big on safety.

    Cons

    Low pay, no over time if you work in a smaller yard, with hours being cut during winter hours. Also being watched by the cameras all the time and being treated like were kids. And the customers that come in are so high they fall asleep on you while you talk to them and steal just to get there high for the day.

    Pros

    River Metals Recycling truly invests in their employees. The most important thing is that everyone is safe and returns home the way the come into work each day. In addition, there are very structured safety trainings and opportunities for professional development. Being owned by David J Joseph opens up your professional options across all business functions and locations throughout the US. If you're looking to work at a place with a family culture that has the mindset on doing things the right way, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    None for me. However, working in a position where you're outside in the elements isn't for everyone.

    Pros

    Great experience and exposure to a very convoluted industry. People can be great if your a part of the good 'ol boy club.

    Cons

    Do not like new people. Harassment, daily grind from peers, little support above and below.
