Productive area
Lots of opportunity for advancement and transfers, my experience with management was good, however I witnessed some unfortunate events also. Blame is often shifted onto the union employees, but if you can learn not to take it personally, the benefits and pay seem to be worth it.

Good place to work now.
Just do your job and everything will work out. Plenty of opportunities to move around and more desirable jobs become available over time as others retire.

Opportunities for Improvement
Never a dull day(Hamilton), lots going on, slower pace. Young management and older crowd of steelworkers. Safety is excellent in this plant. Recent upgrades should be profitable.

Inviting workplace
Working for Stelco was a pleasure. The atmosphere was inviting and my supervisors were always friendly and willing to help. Whether working independently or in a group, I was able to perform my job fast and be confident that they were being carried out correctly. I would love to return to a summer position if it is available next year.

Good people poor Management
Work atmosphere is good in general just with few difficult people as anywhere else. However, most of the Management is quite poor. Good salary and benefits if you do not have children. Good RSP plan including Company contribution. May be things will improve once Company stabilize under new Ownership - so far they try to minimize costs.
Pros
nice people mostly
Cons
Management and internal communication

No job security or what'soever , no processes to follow.

Work culture is poor, facilities are poor. Management is not truthful to their employees.


Anyone applying for an office role, please be cautious. They will use you for a one time project and let you go.
Pros
Hours are good
Cons
No job security

Pays the Bills
if you really only plan on staying for 2 years or less then you should apply. Staying longer will turn you into a cynical,bitter and disgruntled person with nothing but negative views on a workplace.
Pros
pay, benefits.
Cons
everything else

Good place to begin a career/start in your field. Should only stay long term if you can tolerate the social environment and working conditions.
Stelco Lake Erie Works (Nanticoke) is an OK place to work. It is a steel making facility, so it is very dirty and hot most of the time. Some days can be very busy, especially if there are problems or equipment malfunctions, whereas other days can be devoid of things to or even boring. Work culture is OK; some operators/technicians are productive and have a positive attitude, while other coworkers may be lazy, negative, or even negligent (a typical union environment). The work culture can also be somewhat "cliquey" depending on where you are (small, exclusive social groups). Most areas and departments are poorly managed, with managers being often distant from the workers and tend to leave things to be "sorted out on their own". If you are new and on probation: watch out, as sometimes managers, HR and the company might look for the smallest things to fire you over, which makes it a bit repressive for new hires (6 months before you receive a pay raise and actual union membership). The physical atmosphere can be challenging, especially if you have a busy job (like an electrician or mechanic) or if you plan on working there long term, as there are miles of stairs and many tasks require kneeling, bending, climbing, etc, as well as physical labour, which can be extra tough in the hotter areas or during hot summer days. The pay is decent, the benefits are OK (dental and prescription drugs mainly, no massage, wellness, gym, etc). Do not work here if you have a low tolerance for filthy places and hot environments, and don't want to work shifts (Continental shift pattern offers poor turnaround - more...
