    I have been working at ArcelorMittal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits which are given immediately. Probably the best money you can make with only a high school education

    Cons

    Management will force you over another shift based on seniority if your relief calls off. Everything is based off of seniority which kills any remaining work ethic you have after probationary period. Lack of discipline. You are paid to be there working if you feel like it for most employees. and they pay you great with great benefits due to nature of work. You will miss any family activity you ever plan because scheduling is never consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your labor force as we are the ones using equipment and machinery. Take into consideration there are things more important than steel. And actually be there when labor is working weekends and afternoon and midnight shifts.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal full-time (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 Management

    I have little advice other than do not work here.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation if you can negotiate it, some decent people in the management, Not very high pressure most of the time other than for people who are in charge of businesses that are preforming badly.

    Cons

    Steel business industry outlook is very gllomy which will mean ArcelorMittal will continue to struggle; Lack of clear HR policies, HR function is very poor; Wide differences in compensation for the same position depending on your nationality and negotiating skills; Culture is not open to dissent, especially at the top; very few high quality managers in the top; growth depends on having the right connections than performance.

    Advice to Management

    Respect professionals; Stop discriminating based on nationality; Encourage open debate and dissent (do not shoot the messenger)
