Millwright (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 9 February 2019
This is a great place to work for your whole career, it has many perks, reasonable expectations, and very good pay. It's a heavy industry and they know that it's tough so they balance it out other ways. There are bonuses and profit sharing that make your income hard to calculate but overall it's great money, the benefits are not that great but better than no benefits and an excellent pension. Every person will be put into an asset where they can meet the requirements.. ie not everyone wants tons of overtime or certain environment types so they can be usually accommodated on reasonable circumstances.
A great place to learn, make money, get comfortable and focus on what you're good at.
Environmental challenges (Hot, dirty, cold, toxic, etc... usual for industry) Weak benefits (limited coverage and discontinue after retirement)
Shutdown Schedule Coordinator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 10 January 2019
OUR PRODUCT IS STEEL, OUR STRENGTH THE PEOPLE Not anymore......The company since bought out is led by a bunch of under qualified people whom determine job progression and advancement by who you know not the most qualified. All the good upper management retired I know why now. If you suffer from Mental Illness or any illness forget about it. Don't apply here Cold hearted people who do not understand how to treat people just looking for personal advancement. If you get in the click your IN if not consider yourself an out cast. DO NOT HAVE AN OPINION or stand up for your team as they take away things that effect the future. If you want to devote all your time to this company as work and life balance is non existent. They expect the world for nothing in advance. You can't stand up to management or push the process on employees because they don't know it or care just get something done there way. You can not be creative or a leader as you might step on somebodies toes.

they enforce all safety rules, but also elevate your level of safety training and awareness. All equipment gets regular checks and maintenance. If something is not working properly they will fix it promptly
Finished Product Shipping (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 2 January 2019
I enjoyed my year at Dofasco working down at Bayfront shipping. But a lot of pressure to get hired and focus on always striving higher then your other peers. Because your a casual your time can be up at any moment. I wish I was writing to say I am still working here but I am going to re apply to amd and hope for the best in 2019. No hard feelings or anything bad to say about the place.
Developer (Co-op) (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 30 December 2018
I worked in the main office for four months as a junior developer working with two different teams on two projects. Daily meetings helped to keep everyone on the same page, and all members of my teams were always available to answer any questions. The only downside is that things happen slowly. If you need information or permissions from someone not on your floor, it may take awhile for them to get back to you.
Flexible schedule provided you're there for core hours
For a large industrial company a good place to work
Asset Trade Specialist Instrumentation (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 16 December 2018
Good organization compared to most places. Safety is preached and they expect you to follow safe work practices. You have the opportunity to participate in meetings to voice your concerns and help improve operations.
Good place for newbies but not good for experienced professionals
Information Technology Analyst (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 28 November 2018
Great location is if you are just finishing your University and is looking for a company to start your professional life but if you are already a skilled person this is not the best option for you due to the underpaid salary compared to similar organizations and a extended health insurance that is almost as nothing.
ArcelorMittal Dofasco hold a secret ingredient of culture and community in their work place. There is a large sense of comradry among the business units and corporately. This great sense of community allows ArcelorMittal Dofasco to achieve results others may consider impractical.
