Horrible place to work
Maintenance (Former Employee), NanticokeJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: no tools, no supervision, means no work. great place to sit and read
Cons: supervision, screwed up pay weekly, toxins they don't tell you about, security
I am a former employee from the plant in nanticoke ontario. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They preach safety but if it interferes with production it goes right out the window and god forbid if you hurt yourself because you will be to blame regardless of the circumstances. The environment is terrible and the amount of toxins you inhale – more... daily is not worth the money. They supply you with little or no tools to do your job. They rip you off every pay and force you to fight for what's yours. Management has little idea what they are doing. The union does not represent there employees. All in all I'd say unless your starving in the street I would run as far away from this place as you can. – less

Do not work here!
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee), Nanticoke, ONApril 25, 2013
This is where tradesmen and women come to lose all self respect! I've worked for USLess steel for the last 6 Years! You will be disrespected, and suffer some of the work working conditions you can imagine, and heaven forbid if you cut you finger! Do not work here.

Interesting Job. Terrible: conditions, pay, management and job advancement opportunities,
Utilities Operator (Former Employee), Lake Erie Works, Nanticoke ONJuly 15, 2012
Pros: interesting job, massive industrial facility.
Cons: everything else.
I cannot not say enough bad things about this company. The only trades people that should consider this place are people with no experience or no other option. This company has no interest in investing in their employees. Do not expect any help with advancement. Getting them to sign off on your experience time will be like pulling teeth. The draconian – more... actions of the company as a whole will quickly poison your attititude and it will take years to go away. The place is freezing in the winter, sweltering in the summer and absolutly polluted every day.

I did enjoy my job day to day job, but the company made the work enviroment unbearable. The pay definatly does not compensate for amount of pollution you encounter on a day to day basis. – less

Decent Pay Great People
Business Planner (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PASeptember 5, 2014
Pros: pay, people, safety highly regarded
Cons: maybe too conservative
Management dependent on individual in charge.

A typical day was usually fulfilling and not too stressful as long as you had a team to work with.

Co-workers were hard working and smart.

Most enjoyable part of the job was networking and visiting other plants.

Toughest part was working at home after hours which was usually end of the month.

A Crusty Company with the Job Culture of Cold Metal
Information Systems (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJune 4, 2014
Pros: great benefits, generous compensation
Cons: bad company culture, poor management, poor work environment (no windows, tons of dust, disgusting bathrooms), unfriendly and depressing environment, ridiculous dress code, a culture of fear
U.S. Steel offers great benefits and, for those in the Management Associate program, competitive pay. However, the company's management is highly ineffective, and U.S. Steel fosters a 'blame your subordinates' policy. In my experience, U.S. Steel management is not supportive, and employees do not receive adequate training. Additionally, for those that – more... work within the Business Service Center located in Pittsburgh's Southside location: do not expect any sort of job advancement. A reason exists for why most new employees leave within three years: U.S. Steel offers little to no chance of promotion from within the company. Finally: U.S. Steel encourages an unfriendly and often misogynistic environment, and treats employees like expendable automatons. Then again, can one really expect anything less from a company founded by corrupt individuals J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie? – less
