Idaho Steel Products, Inc.

Lead Product Engineer

May 2016 • Idaho Falls, ID

What I liked

I like that we are able to have the fabrication shop in house that we can get instant feed back on our designs. I also like that we get to go and see the equipment that our company builds running. The group of people that we work with is really fun and willing to help when you ask for it.

What I wish was different

This is my fist job that I has been in my major field. It is hard to say what I would want to be different since I don't have anything else to compare it to.

Advice

I started out by polishing metal then I moved up to the position that I am in now. If you find a company that you want to work for let them know what you want to do but also let them know that you are willing to do anything to get in the door. Once you are in the door work hard and smart and prove to them that you are a valuable employee and they will see that and reward you for it.

Human Resource Manager

August 2009 • Idaho Falls, ID

What I liked

This company is a team of incredible people. It is a small, family owned business, so you aren't just a number here. The company supports it's people and values collaboration. They offer great benefits as well!

What I wish was different

I still currently work here. There are always things you'd change about a job, but I never dread coming to work each day. There is always something to accomplish and I like feeling as if I can make a difference where I work.

Advice

Although it may not be the mainstream anymore, committing to a company and working long-term can be really rewarding. I feel that I am loyal to them, and it is reciprocated. This has been a wonderful opportunity for professional growth for me as well as being able to provide for my family.

Cooperation from management as I tried to help change and improve the safety culture.
