I can't believe how irresponsible of a business Gerdau Ameristeel can be. Where are their ethics? They laid off 2 crews & people with up to 20 years seniority a year & in Jan & May of 2009. Now they go to call the 4th crew back, & say start June 21st, NO, now then June 28th, and then on June 18th they call everyone back, & say Sorry we are not calling you back. Too bad that you already quit your job, but Oh Well, we just don't have the orders so it's your loss. Even though orders have a six week lead time, we can only call you a few days before you are to start and tell you not to come back. How can a company feel good about screwing with peoples lives like this. Getting them to quit their job they have now, and then lose that job, and not offer the one they promised. In my opinion that says ALLOT about this company. Thanks Again for NOTHING GERDAU. Way to be a helpfull member of the community.

Gerdau loves their brown nosers, especially the engineering dept. They hired people for unreal salaries all while laying people off. It's all just a clubhouse to them and keeping on their drinking buddies.

As a former member of the engineering team there that wouldn't kiss Bob's butt... I agree completely. He hires his little brown nosers and lets good of the few good people he had. Kirk was the only one left in the department that was worth a cr*p after Tom left.
