    Shift Manager

    Maintenance Shift Manager (Former Employee)
    Middletown, OH

    ProsGood place to get a name on your resume first after college.

    ConsThe hourly is union, so they are lazy, hostile, and egotistic. Also due to the union, you will not be working with anything directly, so you won't learn much. I suggest leaving no later than 2 years if you work with hourly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should have settled for nothing less than the complete dissolution of the union. They are destroying your company. That is why Nucor is doing so much better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible place to work.

    ProsThere are no pros at all.

    ConsUpper management will treat you like dirt. You have no say on what goes on. Ak Steel hires the dumbest guys they can for upper managment.

    Ak Tube survivor!

    Production (Former Employee)
    Walbridge, OH

    ProsMoney is decent and they give tickets to ciderpoint.

    ConsRidiculous safety rules resulting in no job security, bias in promotion, in your face disrespect by supervisors, frequent suspensions leading to loss of income, future health risk from inhaling coolant, weld fumes, generally horrible place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSay what you mean and mean what you say. Warn employees what to expect in term of impossible to reach safety standards.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
