People are Great
IT Support Technician (Current Employee) –  Quebec22 August 2017
People are great. Job is ok if you don't have a young family at home. Management sucks. They don't take Employee request to consideration and don't care about them. only money.

Very interesting place to work

Long hours, weather is always changing.

Environnement avec manque de structure
Gestionnaire de construction (Former Employee) –  Schefferville, QC10 June 2016
Dès mes débuts lors du contrat au sein de l'entreprise Tata Steel, j'ai perçu un manque d'organisation et de structure. L'entreprise venait de faire son entrée sur le marché canadien. Cette introduction nécessitait des prérequis qui parfois n'étaient pas maintenu.

Les décisions prises par les gestionnaires de la compagnie minière étaient tantôt bonnes, tantôt ambigus, ce qui créait des retards sur l'échéancier.
Pros
le challenge que le projet offrait
Cons
Les conditions de gestion

Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Schefferville, QC9 April 2016
I enjoy having great people to work with in a productive manner at the same time passing a few jokes for a good laugh. SAP training was new and great challenge along with the whole mining environment. Leaving home for two weeks was difficult, while being home for two weeks was amazing and adventurous.
Pros
Free camp and food
Cons
Leaving home for two weeks

Poor work environment and management
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Newfoundland and Labrador8 April 2016
The project I worked on with Tata Steel Canada was poorly managed. Very poor morale among employees and managers. Maintenance and structural repairs were not being addressed and health and safety didn't pay any due diligence, All issues were ignored. There was no way to stay physically active except to exercise in your dorm room. Managerial leadership was poor some wouldn't even speak to you. Stress levels were high and they pushed for numbers and production cutting any corners they could. Contractors were not being paid on time or even at all, Contracts were left to the point of failure with no advancement. There were great people that I was able to have the privilege to work alongside. Overall very poor company to work under.
Pros
the people and culture
Cons

Great place to work, good people and great schedule
Millwright/Welder (Former Employee) –  Newfoundland and Labrador8 April 2016
TATA was a great place to work with good people and a great schedule, but because it was so isolated it kind of made things difficult, like getting the required parts and equipment to complete most jobs, which meant a lot of times you had to be very innovative to say the least.
