I worked at Schnitzer Steel full-time (More than 8 years)
Yes they do advance you up the ladder and put you onto different machines with some training, and there may or may not be a bonus for all the work you do. Limited advancement but there is some.
As echoed in a lot of reviews , management takes a one day course on how to manage the employees and relies on ongoing experience to continue the education. This is stupid. Advancement depends a lot on whose buddy you are. I am fine with being laid off however the lower seniority people making far less retain their jobs and they have far less safety and diligence in doing the work and will have a stronger chance of being injured. Just an accident waiting to happen. Not a healthy place to work. Too much talk of safety and slowing down and non verbal communication that contradicts what you are told.
Bottom line : not a safe work environment , and stress levels are high.
Advice to Management
Get a real educated manager in to take over the job and get rid of the favoritism so prevalent . Pay people what they are worth not what some idiot in the states has figured out.

I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Schnitzer Steel (Surrey, BC (Canada)) in June 2014.
There was about six interviews, one with each senior manager and an IQ/EQ test. They asked in-depth questions about my experience and the things I was interested in professionally and otherwise. There was a strong focus on desire to learn and ability to manage/motivate other people. I was very impressed with the calibre of the managers and the respect with which they treated me as an interviewee.
