Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), EdmontonMay 12, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: very poorly managed from president down.
New management from Australia are the managers they teach you NOT to be in university.

Everything they do is counterintuitive and only results in the destruction of employee morale.

Tough Shifts Poorly Managed
Shift Worker (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 12, 2013
Pros: $30/hour to start
Cons: everything else.
Anyone above the Foreman level are too disconnected from the operations reality to be effective.

Safety department is a joke.

HR staff would never be employed anywhere but here because AltaSteel rewards management incompetence that would result in termination at any other company.

The President is a throw back to the 1940's. Beat staff for any problems – more... and take ALL the credit for successes.

All the good managers have quit over the past 6-9 months because the upper managers run the place so poorly. – less

Poor work environment.
Millwright (Former Employee), MillwrightDecember 17, 2012
Pros: benifits, in town, overtime is double time.
Cons: work environment, management, union protects the cancer, no chance at moving up or bettering oneself.
Not a trades union. Management is always looking to point a finger instead of working on solution. Very poor work culture all around. Low moral. If something doesn't change I don't see a future for the company. Steel making side of plant is very dirty and unhealthy area to work. Not enough money to work there.

Culture of low work ethic, greedy union, no future.
Quality Assurance Technologist (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 10, 2012
Pros: good benefits for salaried workers.
Cons: no chances for advancement for non-union workers.
Good place for union workers, no place for hard-working professionals. No chance for advancement. Management who wastes money on things which are not required. No bonuses. Very dirty.
