Community Affairs (Former Employee) – Schefferville, QC – 1 August 2016
This job was very interesting and each day was a different day. Nothing is the same with this company due to the diversity of the people. You do not know who to meet or work with each which made it interesting.
Gestionnaire de construction (Former Employee) – Schefferville, QC – 10 June 2016
Dès mes débuts lors du contrat au sein de l'entreprise Tata Steel, j'ai perçu un manque d'organisation et de structure. L'entreprise venait de faire son entrée sur le marché canadien. Cette introduction nécessitait des prérequis qui parfois n'étaient pas maintenu.
Les décisions prises par les gestionnaires de la compagnie minière étaient tantôt bonnes, tantôt ambigus, ce qui créait des retards sur l'échéancier.
I enjoy having great people to work with in a productive manner at the same time passing a few jokes for a good laugh. SAP training was new and great challenge along with the whole mining environment. Leaving home for two weeks was difficult, while being home for two weeks was amazing and adventurous.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Newfoundland and Labrador – 8 April 2016
The project I worked on with Tata Steel Canada was poorly managed. Very poor morale among employees and managers. Maintenance and structural repairs were not being addressed and health and safety didn't pay any due diligence, All issues were ignored. There was no way to stay physically active except to exercise in your dorm room. Managerial leadership was poor some wouldn't even speak to you. Stress levels were high and they pushed for numbers and production cutting any corners they could. Contractors were not being paid on time or even at all, Contracts were left to the point of failure with no advancement. There were great people that I was able to have the privilege to work alongside. Overall very poor company to work under.
Great place to work, good people and great schedule
Millwright/Welder (Former Employee) – Newfoundland and Labrador – 8 April 2016
TATA was a great place to work with good people and a great schedule, but because it was so isolated it kind of made things difficult, like getting the required parts and equipment to complete most jobs, which meant a lot of times you had to be very innovative to say the least.
labourer (Former Employee) – scheffervile, que – 8 January 2016
Camp is very basic, stayed in more advanced camps in the 80's.Mid management is mostly made up of IOC/Wabush cast off's and lets not talk about the nepotism. Mill is shutdown until march 31/2016(or so they say), company does not have a pension plan.
* 12 hours shift * 2 weeks on/2 weeks off rotation * Experienced colleagues * Opportunities for learning and new ideas as company is doing first project in Canada * Winters are very harsh sometimes * Supportive co-workers

Geologist (Current Employee) – jhamshedpur – 11 December 2013
as usual 8 hr. working, here i learned about quality control at mines, geological modelling, mapping, core logging. But along with the all learning i felt that there is a little scope for growth, its a jam packed situation.
Friendly work environment with unfriendly management style and questionable ethics
Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 24 October 2013
Strong cultural influence on corporate ethics; Subjective managers (seems like they are dividing people on casts); Personal relations with managers are more appreciated than professionalism; Unnecessary stress, incoherence; Friendly co-workers, good communication, no competition
