    Pros

    The best reason for working at the Coatesville plant is mainly the people. They've been the most enjoyable part of the job. Good benefits, very safety aware. pretty approachable management

    Cons

    Union shop means tensions can rise for various reasons. Areas seem constantly understaffed and under-supported. Emergencies mean rearranging your schedule around work - could lead to 20+ hours days or multiple weeks with no day off.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more continual feedback to employees besides a once a year, 20 minute sit-down

  2. Intern with little to do

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great people, friendly and kind who you will have the chance to work with. This is a highly efficient mill with new technology and new steel grades coming into it. There are opportunities to be a part of some very cool advancements in the industry.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of distinguishment in compensation or treatment between those who work hard and those who scrape by doing scarcely any work. Also, the union culture sometimes prevents efficiency in production by enabling two or three individuals to share work which could easily be performed by one.

    Advice to Management

    Seek to get all employees more equally involved in and dedicated to the company. Perhaps change the current compensation strategy to be more dependent on employee performance reviews.

    Pros

    Lots of highly skilled and knowledgeable coworkers to learn from and to help guide you along your career.

    Cons

    Frustrating upper management decisions and almost no ability to induce change among the union work force. Long hours with minimal comprnsation, even after repeated attempts to garnish help or an increase in salary.

    Pros

    Positive working environment where everyone takes pride in what they are doing. Management, HR, and all other workers took good care of the interns and gave meaningful assignments.

    Cons

    The plant I worked in seemed a little outdated compared to other steel mills which made it difficult to be efficient. Down time can become very long especially when the mill goes down for whatever reason. As an intern this led to some boredom after all assignments were finished and the mill was down.

    Advice to Management

    Lobby with corporate for some up to date equipment

  6. Great pay but have an issue with engineers.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, with good overtime opportunities and quarterly profit sharing.

    Cons

    The retention rate for new engineers is some 40%, it's really bad here. The biggest issue is that they don't have many engineering positions and often put their engineers to work as line foremen.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to us more about what we expect from the job before placing us directly into a random position in the plant.

    Pros

    The benefits are the best part about this job. Better than most other companies with health care and retirement plans. Development is also stressed through various training.

    Cons

    Roles and movement are not clearly defined. If you are looking to move up, there is no plan. A lot of the workforce is retiring so there will be potential in the future, it just isn't clear when that will be possible. Not very challenging work, so it is hard to feel like you are actually learning.

  11. It was okay

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People wanted to succeed as a whole, it was pretty nice working with both manufacturing personnel and staff. As the largest steel manufacturer, it felt like the company had a good grip on the market.

    Cons

    It was understaffed and underfunded at my particular location. There wasn't enough resources to get work done well--everything was done just to get by. It felt like putting out fires instead of succeeding.
