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.
