Terrible company, nepotism and contracts.
HBI Load Assembler and Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON17 February 2018
You could work hard for years and have your contract expire as a casual employee or slack off for nine months and get hired permanently for the rest of your life. Even within the same department the unequal treatment is staggering.

This is a terrible company with a toxic work environment.
Pros
Starting-wages are competitive.
Cons
Carrot-on-a-stick incentives that never materialize.

Millwright
Millwright Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON2 January 2018
Former Shift Maintenance IRNM , Many cold nights working outside in frigid conditions as a new Millwright alone at times working in dark and dangerous unsafe conditions. Numerous times being exposed to high levels of Carbon monoxide with safety portable monitor going off the scale! Not worth long the 12 hr shifts and being used by management as the blast furnace is covered by a skeleton crew of just an electrician and a Millwright very unsafe . Seen Top Millwrights leave because of the working conditions , stress levels and lack of training . This company is great depending on the area you get assigned to . Primary area you work mostly outside hot , cold dirty environment being exposed to Carbon monoxide coal dust or Cancer causing Benzine ! Stay away from the Coke and Iron Dept or you can take say 5 years off your life for the stress and the work environment!

Solid longstanding community supporter.
Maintenance Welder (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON31 December 2017
Lots to learn at a company this size. Tons of double overtime in my department. They'll pay schooling/tuition for advancement in your trade after your apprenticeship. For the true tradespeople that go all the way and obtain your C of Q/Red Seal, full-time regular hire immediately and no contract. Pension/benefits and a yearly bonus starts right away, and 2 years for profit sharing. Never have to pay for a gym membership again seeing as they have 3 gyms plus one at the recreation park. Endless family programs as well, i.e. Hockey, angling etc. I've worked at quite a few companies including trade unionized ones. Dofasco is much higher than average wages and I wouldn't leave here for any unionized company(unless I got laid off, but I would come back as soon as I could).
Pros
High wages, endless overtime, plenty of room for advancement
Cons
Shift rescheduling to nights for certain shutdowns

Long Hours

Teamleader (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON19 October 2017
It is a fast paced challenging environment that is ideal for young people entering the manufacturing environment. The management is very supportive of the employees and is always advancing employees that work safely and go the extra mile. It is like working for numerous small companies within a large company. The job is very rewarding because employees are learning new thing every day even for long term employees. In general it is a great company to work for that offers a very competitive compensation plan ,ie wages, benefits, company parties, recreation park, retiree clubs.
Pros

Casual labour
DSG Finishing/Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON14 September 2017
It's started off good working at dofasco. The money was good and easy work. The shift work takes its toll on you though. Hard on the body and mind. There was very little chance at a full time position and treated like a number. It took over a month to get my ROE after numerous times trying to contact HR through various methods.
Pros
Good pay, only work around 15 days a month, some good coworkers, OT often
Cons
12 hour rotational shifts, hard work life balance, can be dirty, grumpy employees, very bad for your health, no job security.
