Crane Operator/Lab Tech (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 May 2017
Working at Dofasco is a pretty fast paced environment, not a bad place to work if you are single, however if you are married with kids like myself you will find that your not home as much as you'd like to be. The divorce rate there is extremely high due to the hours you are forced to work. They pay you very well for this reason however its not a place for everyone, you stress a lot here with so many people on contract and competing to land a full time position. During my time here I have only witnessed one actual person get hired on, they rest were shown the door upon the end of their contract.

I learned a lot from this job not just work skills but life skills. I learned how to work closely with a team and excel in a high paced environment. One of the most enjoyable parts of the job was learning new skills, from going to mohawk and working In the shop ive learned a lot about myself.

A typical day would be get on the CTS bus and go to a shutdown to do preventative maintenance, easy boring hot and dirty work dished out by maintenance planners that don't have any idea how to plan jobs . A once proud Canadian company is just another steel mill in the Arcelor Chain. Could really use a union as the company has cut benifits and not up the pay in a few years to match the cost of living . Used to have one of the best pensions in Canada for manufacturing not anymore . Can't wait to retire!
High paced environment, great if you like to constantly be challenged

Safety and team work are the two strong aspects of working for this company. They give you all the tools required for the job and give positive feedback on well performed tasks. Management is always positive and supportive of projects and accomplishments.

Work conditions very poor. Very dirty and dangerous work area, Fellow co-workers very helpful. Management do not help to make the job better. I have learned that there are better places to work and they pay better as well. Night shifts you are all alone and they are poor work conditions.
