Electrical System Intern (Former Employee), Granite City, IL – December 22, 2013
The BOF wasn't the most pleasant work environment. The office atmosphere is stagnant, but inside the BOF is hot and stuffy. It's good for workers who like to get their hands dirty in maintenance, but for – more... the more creative personality, this is the worst type of job. Workers in the office are often lazy until something in the casters break down unless they are especially motivated to implement something new. Benefits are great, however. Overall, not a very exciting job, but for someone who is just looking for a 9-5, this may be just the thing. – less
utilites (Former Employee), nanticoke – February 23, 2015
Cons: poor management, poor working atmosphere.
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 – more... 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. – less
Steel making (Current Employee), Nanticoke – September 9, 2014
Cons: everything else
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.
Maintenance (Former Employee), Nanticoke – January 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 – more... 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. – less
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee), Nanticoke, ON – April 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.
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 – more... 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. – less
