I worked at United States Steel full-time (More than 10 years)
Challenging variety of work. Mostly worked on my own after job assignment. Learned a lot of other trade skills on the job.
Very few managers know how to handle their employees or even what kind of work the jobs they do involve. Too much backstabbing by upper management and HR.
Advice to Management
Get managers in key positions from the top down who actually want the company to succeed; dump the outside advisors!
The process took 4 days. I interviewed at United States Steel (Chicago, IL).
Initial phone screen with HR. Phone interview with hiring manager went well, and he even mentioned I had an impressive resume. A few hours later I got a form letter saying they were pursuing other candidates
