    I have been working at ArcelorMittal as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn alot from much older Senior individuals. Quality beginning pay and it seems that moving up in the hierarchy isn't too rough

    Cons

    Lots of aged technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in more young brains to expand the knowledge of how a steel mill works.

    Pros

    Flexible start and end times

    Cons

    The managers are racist still to this day. Hire people as managers/supervisors who are not familiar with HR practices who end up getting the company in legal trouble. Denied a black temp medical treatment now they are being sued. They also lie to you and tell you that you cannot apply for a job outside facility load, they tell you this when they don;t want you to leave. But our white counterparts are allowed to get jobs they didn't even apply for. However, the aformentioned practices are only in East Chicago. This behavior is not practiced in Burns Harbor, IN. My advice to potential employees is not to apply for a job in the Facility Load Dept in East Chicago apply at Burns Harbor.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, decent pay and benefits, great people (engineers) to work with.

    Cons

    Work location and travel commute to the manufacturing plants can be burdensome. The industry can be a dangerous place to work for some. Sometimes the work is not very challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to find ways to satisfy the young engineers. Keep them challenged and encouraged in the industry.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay was good, but may stagnate quickly

    Cons

    You will often be treated with disrespect, and getting yelled at is part of the company culture. About half the people in my hire group and half of the supervisors quit within two years. I specifically asked in all my interviews what the standard work day was like, and was met with dodgy answers. My standard work day was from 6-4, and frequently had to stay past then. You may be subject to rotating shifts (they did not mention any of that in the interview process).

    Their safety record is not good; OSHA injury rate is significantly over industry averages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have little advice other than do not work here.

    Good projects for interns. Great internship program

    I worked at ArcelorMittal as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of work to be done. Many opportunities to move up. Some really great people to work with.

    Cons

    They contract out pretty much everything. Lack of people in the right places.
    Many systems need to be brought into modern times although this takes time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modernize the mills to make them more efficient (although this takes money that isnt there)
