I worked at Dofasco

Pros

Good combination of field work + office work. As a co-op, it is expected that you show a lot of initiative. Once you do that, there are various places to find your niche. Balance between field work and office work is great. Agree 100% with the old motto, "Our Strength Is Our People". Great people to work with.

Cons

Dirty, gritty environment. Coke dust seeps through ventilation in some parts of the plant. Too many 50 year old employees. And once these people start retiring, they aren't looking to replace them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage the younger people in the department. Give them more room to grow, and give them opportunities for promotion.

    I have been working at Dofasco as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, good training, lots of stuff to learn. Shifts were hard at first but one you get use to them you never want to work anything else.

    Cons

    Nothing really bad to say, Just keep your nose clean and you will have success.
