All in all a pretty relaxed and safe environment to work.
MILL ASSISTANT TEAM LEADER (Former Employee), Camanche, IANovember 11, 2015
Pros: Its a personal work environment.
Cons: Swing 12 hour shifts and the career relies heavily on the market.
There is a good amount of support out of management as long as everyone is safe and productive. A lot of room for growth as long as you do what is asked of you in a timely safe fashion and you come to work on time when you scheduled to be there.

Team Leader (Former Employee), Camanche, IASeptember 28, 2015
Pros: Good insurance
Cons: The company closed
My typical day of work consisted of supervising 10 to 13 employees in the production of welded pipe. I learned a great deal about supervising employees over my 12 years there from other Team Leaders and my immediate supervisor. The biggest thing I learned is how to treat each individual employee.

Good place to learn bad place to stay and advance
Technical Sales Manager (Current Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 21, 2015
Pros: Excellent work life balance and benefits
Cons: Upper management is terrible
Exposure to many things you probably would never do at a big company. Leadership is lacking a sense of direction and planning for the future. Many people don't last here more than 3 years. Job advancement is unclear and there is little to no training offered. The culture has become very negative due to the market conditions.

The people that work here are very good at what they do but largely under appreciated by their managers.

I would not recommend unless you plan on just learning and moving on.

Tmk ipsco is a good place to work. At most positions you have to deal with the heat and cold but its manageable. Good people to work with and you cant beat the pay. the company is very safety oriented and they truly seem to care about their employees.

Unfortunately TMK IPSCO business is affected by oil price. The company has a lot of financial issues, because of that they started to lay people off. I believe they will do it again and again.

Great place to work, but they couldn't stay open any longer.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Wilder, KYJuly 20, 2015
Pros: Great pay, good people
Cons: Laid off
Alot of rules but easy to follow, paperwork was a must, but easy to fill out. Day to day work was a piece of cake. Come in, get your job for the day, and go to work. Plenty of overtime, and plenty of time to do it. But in the end they laid everyone off.....

Director Human Resources (Former Employee), Wilder, KYJune 17, 2015
Pros: Many free lunches for training, meetings, etc.

Full time Laborer (Former Employee), Camanche, IAJune 14, 2015
Pros: fleixible scheduling
Cons: the lay offs due to job reduction at company, many veteran employees getting the bad news of layoff
TMK IPSCO was a great company to work for during 21 yrs of service. I worked 12 hrs shifts 2 on 2 off and then 3 days on weekends. I would return to work if called back however on the letter of notice we were served it said lay offs were basically permanent I can also produce such letter. I also lost my insurance at time of lay off so that too is crucial. But overall my experience in 21 yrs was good.
