    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company provides a hands-on, challenging job. There is a lot of responsibility and autonomy for an entry level engineer. The work hours are fairly flexible. There is a variety of equipment and technology in the mill; a lot of large and powerful equipment. Every day is different, and there is always a problem to be solved. The co-workers have been great to work with and are friendly. The company offers a variety of training/education courses. Benefits have been great. Tuition Reimbursement is very favorable. 6% match on 401K.

    Cons

    The company has a high turnover rate for young engineers. As a new emplyoyee, vacation time is 2 weeks until you have reached 5 years. The steel industry is male-dominated. The environment of the mills is dirty, but maneagable.

    Advice to Management

    There doesn't seem to be many promotions available. Corporate has a rigid mentality, but the market is changing.

    Arcelor offers good pay $25.91 per hour for maintenance workers. The healthcare and other benefits, at least till now (in contract negotiations), has been very good.

    Cons

    12 hour rotating shift work. Some like the four on four off (work half year); some don't.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, always willing to help you understand the industry more and grow as a future business professional. Worked on a project that had meaning that wasn't a walk in the park, but the right amount of challenging. Great opportunity to present my project at the end to some higher ranking managers in the company.

    Cons

    Only giving one project and not much more to work on, not the most updated and current facilities, but what can you expect it's a steel mill.

    Pros

    Great health insurance. Excellent pay with bonuses. Management was great to work with and easy to communicate with. Job Security, Many different options and departments.

    Cons

    It takes a while to earn vacation time and depending on the department that you work in, you may end up working every day for an entire month.

    Advice to Management

    Certain departments schedule employees every day for weeks. This makes for a tough work / home life balance. Schedule employees similar to other departments that provide multiple days off in between shifts.

    Pros

    Learned about extremely large and powerful machinery. Learned about manufacturing and maintenance. Overall great experience.

    Cons

    Somewhat dirty but manageable. Some people were tired of the environment. Have to get to work early. Sometimes a lot of downtime.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the interns are able to observe all maintenance repairs if they are not doing anything else. As much hands on experience as possible.
