Great company to work for in the long term
Account Manager (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 8, 2013
Pros: companies by you lunches and the time flys.
Cons: expected to work late and through weekends with no additional compensation. (no commission)
Russel Metals has great benefits, stock purchasing, RRSP contributions. They are always busy so job security is not an issue. Negative, since everything is just in time stress is higher than it should be. Multi tasking is very important in this role.

A stressful environment to work where the upper managerial staff is incompetent at running the Ontario region
Operations Manager (Former Employee), OntarioApril 28, 2012
Cons: low pay, incompetent unit managers in ontario
It was a great place to work at one point, however it is now run by incompetent upper managers who only know sales but not operations. They run the region by fear and if you are in any way better at your job than the unit manager is, your employment is terminated.

Whoever wrote this review really knows the true sadness of a former great place to work which has been totally destroyed .
