Co-workers are great!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This place pays you quite well and when the company does well you get a decent bonus. This place is very dirty and you will be breathing in bad stuff constantly and blowing black stuff out of your nose and body daily. Work can be boring and repetitive at times. Most of your co-workers are helpful and fun to work with, management is meh. Safety is pretty decent, but if something needs to be done fast, it seems like all bets are off when it comes to safety. If you like take good money but get very dirty and smelly, this place is for you.

Material Handler

Poor plant organization and layout. The "improvements" are flawed and the material that is stacked is no longer secured on the 4 posts frequently. Manufacturing technicians frequently work around 6000-7000lb stacks of material that are not balanced and dangerous. Brought safety issues forward with pictures and after a while documented the safety infractions with pictures. Pictures will be posted under "arcelormittal stack spills" and "arcelormittal overhead crane collapses in plant" decide if you want to work there after that. 2021 was the companies worst year for job related deaths. Come to work on a weekly basis and learn about a poor soul who died at ArcelorMittal.

Dirty money. Retire with a month to live.

Lots of money to be made here, you'll never get to enjoy it. Always pushed for more overtime, there's never enough manpower or tools. Company boasts their culture, but it's only a show. You can't buy culture with profit sharing.

Overall it was a good place to work.

Overall it was a good place to work in the steel industry. Most contractors are here. There are a lot of trains and sometimes it takes a long time to wait for the train.

Maintenance Slave worker

Working as a millwright in the CTS department you are bused around daily to do preventive maintenance it is a grind day after day hot dirty unhealthy environment that wears on you both physically and mentally as you are treated like a monkey with a wrench just a number. The Hourly pay is average for this type of industry, benefits are not very good and the only thing that makes up for this is the profit sharing and large company bonuses. If money is all that matters to you, if you don’t care about work/ life balance then you are made for Dofasco !$


Large yearly profit share


Long hours, working conditions, management

Its not a bad place to work

Dofasco is a waste of time.

If you’re not in the trades don’t waste your time. It’s common practice to keep employees on a two-year contract. When your time is up you will not have any transferrable skills to carried to your next job. The work is very physical. The likelihood of getting injured is high. The pay is not as good as it was in the 70s. You will not get the same pay, vacation and benefits as the old timers. A lot of the perks have been cut to keep shareholders happy.


Lots of over time.


There are no transferrable skills to learn.

Some good people work there and really know thier jobs

the title being said, any attempts to improve meets with poor attitudes, references to "its always been done that way". For a large company that's world wide there seem to be nobody watching the chickens too closely.

Production avant tout, santé et sécurité en dernier

Une compagnie qui n'a pas de vision à long terme

L'employeur n'a pas de considération sur le plan humain. Le salaire qui était bon au début s'est fait dépasser par la concurence. Pas de perspective d'avenir pour une carrière à long terme. Les emplois sont toujours en péril à cause des fluctuations du marché de l'acier qui sont très fréquentes. La direction n'investie pas dans les infrastructures et les usines sont à l'abandon. Pas de vision à long terme.


Les formations fournies par l'employeur sont nombreuses et donnent beaucoup d'expérience.


Le salaire que n'augmente pas en fonction du coût de la vie, mises à pieds fréquentes

Horrible management, there is a pretend culture that all is wonderful and it is not!

No training and they treat you like bad for making not good numbers. Favoritism would say they are about they treat everyone different depending on background...not a place to grow and the word texhnician means nothing you are just a production worker with many responsibilities not good for you


There are none....stay away from this place


Management is horrible from the top down, brutal environment mentally takes it out of you

Excellent people working for management that is totally disconnected from reality.

-Like my team-The pay is mediocre, but profit sharing is unbelievable-Management and corporate office is aloof-Benefits are subpar to industry-Dirty environment


Profit sharing


Huge amount of lip service from corporate office

Culture peu centrée sur l'humain au siège social mondial.

Environnement de travail agréable au siège social de Longueuil et aux installations sur la Côte-Nord. Liaisons difficiles avec le siège social en Europe en raison d'une culture de travail qui ne respecte pas toujours les individus.

Good pay and secure job, but that comes with it’s negatives

Pros:Consistent Hoursconsistent paybenefitsUniformPaid education (online/night courses)Company toolsCons:Work life balance does not existExpected to work overtime all the time and talked about as letting your fellow coworkers down if you don’tUnder staffed which leads to excessive overtimeTold you will get advancement or the position you want and then have it ripped from under youManagement listens, pretends to care and then follows through on nothing you spoke aboutGood place to get paid but if your good at your job, they won’t move you to a position you desire because you are a ”asset” leaving you stuck in the same spot.

Soul sucking

This place will suck your soul out and make you super unhappy with your career choice. Management will promise you the world then not deliver. Nobody is painted with the same brush here and nepitism thrives here.

Des pourris, rien d’autre que des pourris.

Le pire endroit où j’ai travaillé dans ma vie, ils n’ont absolument aucun respect pour leurs employés.

Good place to make some money while making steel if you are self-sufficient.

Pay is pretty good. Freedom of time and work is pretty good. Benefits are good. Management is close to awful. Very reactionary, little foresight.

Belle place pour vivre et profiter des loisirs

La paye est bonne, l’horaire résident donne beaucoup de temps libre pour profiter de la vie dans le nord. Manque de rigueur, de leadership et de vision de la direction. L’entreprise ne se donne pas les moyens de ses ambitions.


Équilibre travail/vie de famille et salaire


Ambiance négative, culture de médiocrité, pas de volonté d’amélioration.
