"When things get tough, we circle the wagons to get things done. It’s all about working with good people who want to do well. You can have the best equipment, but it’s really the operators and the people who make great products… and happy customers!
We think on our toes and work hard. We have fun, but safety always comes first. Seeing everyone come together and pushing hard to reach our goals is energizing!
I’m forever thankful to the recruiter who met me as a new physics grad, saw potential in me, and introduced me to my mentor. It put me on a career path I love."
"The culture is what kept me here. CMC takes care of its employees."
“Honestly, I initially came to work here because of the money. But the culture is what kept me here. CMC takes care of its employees. It’s been a good opportunity and career for me. I’ve been personally successful, and I put all my kids through school, which was very important to me. Now, after so many years, I really know my way around the place. I hope to stay here until I retire.”
"I like seeing the team working hard and being safe."
"I love the relationships I’ve built over the years. We always pull together as a team to get the job done and I enjoy assisting coworkers with their HR questions. CMC has invested time and effort to allow me grow, and they’ve given me the opportunity and the training to do so.
CMC feels like family, and the thought of working anywhere else doesn’t appeal to me!"
"I appreciate that CMC allows time for my interests outside of work – it’s a good work-life balance."
“The thing I’m most proud of is our focus on safety. Every day that everyone goes home, and no one was hurt, is a successful day for me. Safety really matters to everyone here, from the big guys on down. I like seeing the team working hard and being safe.
“When I started at CMC 25 years ago, we had a great environment and it’s only gotten better. We still have challenges, but the good kind, like how to make our customers happier and how to do more for them. Every year, the company grows, but at the same time it finds ways to care more and more about the people working here. And, not just about the employees, but our families as well.”
"People accept me for who I am. They want me to be successful."
“I joined CMC after graduating from technical high school, which allowed me to gain knowledge for my future profession as an electrician so that I could start working immediately after I graduated. The salary I earn right after technical school is good as well as the benefits. The work atmosphere has been friendly ever since I started, everyone helps each other as much as possible. I appreciate that CMC allows time for my interests outside of work – it’s a good work-life balance."
"The company cares about more than just production numbers."
“We are a family, like brothers and sisters, and we have each other’s back. There’s such a sense of pride working here. We make the steel that goes into the buildings, roads, and bridges around us. It’s rewarding to see our work make a direct impact in our own community.
As a civil engineer, coming to a big company like CMC was a big move towards growing my career. Being an estimator, I’m the first step in fabricating rebar for our customers so I get to know about all the projects even before they happen. My goal is to become the lead estimator for my team and have us be the best at what we do. I love it here.”
"It’s rewarding to see our work make a direct impact in our own community."
“I’ve been fortunate to work at several different CMC locations and I’ve enjoyed working with the people at each one. We’re more like a family, than a workplace. The company cares about more than just production numbers. Safety is definitely important to everyone. The company puts a lot of focus on it.
“We have a tight-knit group in Houston. I like it here and I like what I do. Someday, if I want a change, I know there are lot of other roles at CMC to try, which is nice.”
"Everybody knows everybody else, from the plant manager to every employee. That goes a long way!"
My father has worked for CMC my entire life, and he’s always been a proud steelmaker. He never once pushed any of his children to be steelmakers – turns out all four of us worked for the company. That’s a testament to the people of CMC and the company.
"The company really takes care of its people, and it’s a great company to work for long-term. They take care of me, so I want to take care of them."
