not a bad company to work for but communication from management makes it difficult at times
NDT Operator (Current Employee), Catoosa, OKMarch 25, 2015
Pros: good compensation and benifits
Cons: schedule changes quite often with no concern for family or other obligations
After a safety meeting we are assigned our positions and start our work day. Inspection of pipe for cracks and gouges on the pipe includes EMI, UT and Sheer wave inspections. Management is terrible at communications and changes are made with no consideration of time involved in changing the equipment to accommodate. If left alone to do the job, the job can be fun and the day goes by very quickly..

Horrible supervisor and management
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: going home
Cons: 30 minute lunch, pay going down, bad manager, supervisor and leadmen
Start out as a great job, but the plant manager quit and some behind him took over. He took charge and put someone with no experience on the line in place. He tells u how to do ur job without ever doing it. U trying to tell him problems but he has an answer for everything. He makes bad decision after another, and if something is not going right it's the employees fault, instead of his, he talks down to u like ur a kid, but ur 10 years older than he is. They tell all the employees that there is people to take ur place all the time, not a fun work environment. They schedule holidays off and the day before say u have to work. It's like a prison, u can't eat any thing between start of work and lunch, u have to watch ur back just to get water, and if u stand there for two minutes with a cup they ask what are u doing. Production bonus goes down every month, used to be $2.25 an hour now with these people it's 50 cents. Even though the same amount of pipe is running. Very cut throat, I miss my old job. Don't come here.

Awful place to work
QA (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 4, 2014
Pros: good benefits, lots of overtime, bonuses every month
Cons: working holidays & weekends, poor management, lots of favoritism
This once was a great place to work once the plant manager left it went to S$&T.Management shows lots of favortism to a select few and let's them do whatever they want,and promote whom they want.All they care about is production and not the workers, however this is a good place to learn the basics and then move on there's no future here

Pay and benefits decent.
Inspection (Current Employee), Brookfield, OHMay 22, 2014
Pros: good salary, bonuses, and benefits
Cons: some serious internal power struggle issues.
It will take you years to actually get two weeks in a row off for vacation. They split it up like 5 days in spring, three days in fall, two days in winter. Employees are rewarded for "snitching" on other employees. Some of the line leaders treat you like you are 5 years old. Work is repetitive and the hours are long. Your schedule will change with very little notice.
Most enjoyable part of job is getting off work. Very repetitive work on the line. You will perform the same job function for up to 12 hours a day.

labor (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: good people that care about their job
Cons: incompetent general manager with no experience in the field
Tmk ipsco has been a very good company , but for the last year it has turned into a very unfair and very difficult place to work at. There is a lot of hard working people in this company but the plant manager and general supervisor just give preference to the selected few. It has become a really bad company to work at, where it seems to be no future no positons to advance your career. I would suggest anyone trying to work at this place to think if you want to be stuck at one position with no future what so ever.

We were like a family.
Administrative Assistant / Receptionist (Former Employee), Downers Grove, ILNovember 25, 2013
Pros: the people
Cons: they decided to relocate to houston, tx.
My fellow employees were more like family than co-workers. Everyone was very friendly and was always willing to give a helping hand when needed. I always went to work with a smile on my face and knew that in the event I did need to speak to someone that everyone's doors were always open. The hardest part of my job was forcing myself to leave at the end of the day! :)
