Company with no leadership
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Nanticoke, ON23 September 2017
A typical day- Bust your butt trying to get staff motivated, working on sub standard equipment that service groups can't fix

What I learned- To keep my mouth shut B/C speaking up doesn't work, company is asking for new ideas however the upper brass has there own agenda.

Management- Reactive management, company has been in business for long time, still can't get it right.

Workplace Culture- Hot, dusty, shifts, be happy you have a job

Hardest part of the job- Trying not to speak my mind, knowing the contractor manager they just brought back is getting paid more then you and can't even operator a computer,

Most enjoyable - The people who like to work hard and put there best foot forward daily.
Pros
None
Cons
Too much management

Stay Away
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON4 September 2017
This by far the worst place I have ever worked. Management is clueless and there is rampant nepotism. They do not pay for business travel and you expected to drive 50 km to their alternate site on a regular basis. Terrible benefit plan and pay is below average and they only pay employees once a month.
Pros
None that I can see.
Cons
Nepotism, terrible pay, terrible benefits.

Great people - struggling company
Process Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON2 May 2017
I enjoyed working at Stelco for the many years I did. Made many friends and colleagues that I still keep in touch with today.

The unstable financial situation made it a difficult place to work and ultimately led to my resignation.

Maintenance is a joke
Industrial Electrician (Current Employee) –  Nanticoke, ON29 April 2017
If you want a job were you don't need to do anything or care about the future of the company than you should work in maintenance here. If you like to work and care about contributing to the stability of the company than you will be frustrated by the lack of effort from those around you and the obstacles management puts in front of you to do your job.
Pros
Sociable enviroment
Cons
So much

Excellent company until the US Steel team bought it out
Invoice and Billing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON12 November 2012
Stelco was an excellent company and really stood behind their employees and cared for them as people and not just employees, this changed when the US bought the company and had a different mind set, more of a money making mind set then the heart of a city.
