Terrible place to work
Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Nanticoke, ONFebruary 2, 2016
Don't work here as this place is run by arrogant and incompetent yanks. They think you must be high if you trip or hurt yourself. They use American style bullying and threats to get you to work unsafely if production is affected but preach safety first. U.S. Steel is basically running Lake Erie Works into the ground to eliminate competition.

Do not work here
utilites (Former Employee) –  nanticokeFebruary 23, 2015
If you enjoy being lied to daily and working at a job where the number one goal is to try and find something to fire you for than come work here. They advertise advancement but then lie to your face and behind your back, they don't want you to get ahead. They preach safety first as long as it doesn't interfere with production. I have never seen a company try harder to lose money and not show a profit. Try to find any other place to work first.
Cons
poor management, poor working atmosphere.

Trying to escape
Steel making (Current Employee) –  NanticokeSeptember 9, 2014
Most the management is fresh out of school. They don't know anything about the industry. All they talk about is safety when really it's all about production. No care for the worker. You will always be the one at fault not the company. Just a dirty unhappy place Do yourself a favor. And stay away.
Pros
wages.
Cons
everything else

Horrible place to work
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  NanticokeJanuary 26, 2014
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 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.
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

Interesting Job. Terrible: conditions, pay, management and job advancement opportunities,
Utilities Operator (Former Employee) –  Lake Erie Works, Nanticoke ONJuly 15, 2012
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 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.
Pros
interesting job, massive industrial facility.
Cons
everything else.
