I worked at EVRAZ North America full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

For non-union work, the benefits and wages were great for entry level - 14.75 to start, 15.49 after 90 days. Unlimited overtime for those that wanted it; easy work and the BEST supervisors I have ever had. They truly cared and protected you. Lots of free meals and paid lunches.

Cons

The Spiral mill receives a single contract at a time. Runs for a few years then closes until another contract comes along. It was open in 2009 and 2013.

Advice to Management

Find enough contracts to employ people in the spiral mill without massive layoffs. Have the integrity not to hire temps.

    I have been working at EVRAZ North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Evraz North America has many dedicated, goal driven employees. The people are friendly and aren't reluctant to take on new challenges and projects to improve the companies bottom line. The pay and benefits are excellent. The fact that there are many people who have worked here for 30-40 years speaks volumes for what Evraz NA offers as an employer.

    For those who demonstrate potential and ability to execute, their are opportunities for promotions and raises. Many are eligible for quarterly bonuses that are a significant portion of total compensation.

    The company emphasizes work-life balance. There are many fringe benefits such as free gym, discounts to resorts, hotels and theme parks ... even a private lake where only employees may fish.

    Cons

    As a company that has grown through acquisition of existing steel companies, Evraz has struggled with standardizing on systems and procedures. It is difficult to get all locations to give up their home grown systems or agree on Corporate standards for ERP, MES, CRM, etc. A few in local management still don't see Information Technology as a differentiator in the market place. As a result, not enough emphasis is placed on IT in the budgeting process, but there are indications that the wind is changing in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    There are plenty of opportunities for improving efficiencies through greater reliance on modern technologies. There should be a corporate initiative to implement a standard ERP, an MES tailored to steel manufacturing adopted by all steel mills, standard data historian in each mill with real-time SPC, and tighter integration between ERP and legacy systems.

    I worked at EVRAZ North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are no real pros to speak of for this company. They are in financial trouble and closing plants around the world to try and stay afloat.

    Cons

    The company is in financial trouble. They are closing and selling plants around the world.
    They are very unstable and ready to close a plant on a whim.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that actually work in the Steel Industry and let them run the Mill.
    You can't fit 10lbs of you know what into a 5lbs bag with out it breaking.
