Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) (Former Employee) –  Nanticoke, ONFebruary 8, 2016
Management policies make doing your job difficult most days. Co-workers were great. The environment is very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. It is also very dirty.

it was at the onset a good place to work but became increasingling difficult
Manager Raw Materials Canada (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ONSeptember 16, 2015
A typical day would be to review the required shipments and insure that they arrived and if b=not contact freight supplier to discuss why and when they would be made. I reported daily to upper management on the supply chain developments. This position was a stand alone position no coworkers. The hardest part of the job was the lack of information flow coming out of Head office in Pittsburgh, I would work in the dark for the most part.

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.

Co-workers were the best part of the job as well as my manager . The hardest part of the job was to keep a great attitude with this company as we were treated like children. They are un-organized to say the very least as a whole.

No morale

Utilities Tech (Former Employee) –  Nanticoke, ONMarch 5, 2013
With this employer I was required to work 12 hour rotating shifts. During a typical shift I would read the logs from the previous shift and do the various equipment inspections for the shift taking readings from high pressure steam turbines and other systems including HVAC, water, compressed air, oxygen, nitrogen and fuel. Additionally, we would work in teams for gas testing for confined space, safety lockouts for repairs. The role of a utilities tech is to ensure the flow of various energy systems to keep steel production going and find solutions to problems when systems break down and to lockout energy systems so that maintenance can be performed.
Management at this company is under a great deal of pressure to perform and there was often a lot of tension between the salaried management and the union employees. Additionally, there were often contract negotiation issues between the company and the union.
I did not fit in with my coworkers as the workforce as in the midst of turn over and a lot of retirements. I was the youngest person on the team.
The most difficult part of the job was dealing with the industrial dust and dirt, feeling jet-lagged from the rotating shift work as well as dealing with interpersonal politics.
The best part of this job was job stability between contracts, the health and medical benefits, and the rate of pay.
Pros
• great pay • benefits • pension
Cons
• conflict and tension between union employees and management • office politics

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.
