Tough Shifts Poorly Managed
Shift Worker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 September 2013
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 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.
$30/hour to start
Everything else.

The business is a manufacturing business with a strong operational focus which carries down through the entire organization. The business runs via lean management styles.

The oay is good, extremely bad foreign management
Former employee (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 March 2016
Altasteel was a good place when it's was owned by Scaw metals. New overseas ownership (Australian owned Company) are extremely poor management businessman.
There have been too many instances where accidents or incidents have occurred and not been reported due to fear of losing job.
The company finds loopholes in the collective agreement to they're advantage, taking away O.T. from employees, allocating funds to front office staff
To hire non essential employees. Employee moral is horrible due to poor management staff, union is not as active as they were years ago.
Company is more interested in cosmetically looking good, then investing into actual safety issues brought up by a large amount of employees.

Stay away from a mismanaged company, Australia does not know nor care bout employees values, only production and to save funds for their own use, not keeping unionized bargaining employees happy.

Stay away!!!
Back stabbing union brotherhood, safety and constant machine issues
