Tough Shifts Poorly Managed
Shift Worker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 September 2013
Anyone above the Foreman level are too disconnected from the operations reality to be effective.

Safety department is a joke.

HR staff would never be employed anywhere but here because AltaSteel rewards management incompetence that would result in termination at any other company.

The President is a throw back to the 1940's. Beat staff for any problems and take ALL the credit for successes.

All the good managers have quit over the past 6-9 months because the upper managers run the place so poorly.
Pros
$30/hour to start
Cons
Everything else.

I like it here
Steelmaking Production Operator (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 April 2018
Most workers dont realize how good they have it here. Strong union, good pay, good benefits..no education required. Dangerous yes, also very old equipment. But good maintenance and electrical team to keep things running. Shift work, long hours but lots of days off.
Pros
Good pay, benefits, all ppe provided, room for advancement
Cons
Long hours, switch from days to nights constantly
