    Pros

    If you are self motivated and do your best each and every day its a great place to work. Fairly reasonable compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Many employees too busy looking for a cakewalk rather than getting on the grind stone and earning it.

    I have been working at United States Steel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits, although the medical portion is great, the vision and dental are disappointing, it's like not having any at all

    Cons

    Our new CEO, all the so called team leaders and not very much room to advance in the company anymore, sad, sad, sad

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with your employees, because they can either make you shine or loose your luster, stop showing favoritism, promote whose qualified not just your favorite

    Pros

    Great job with benefits .

    Cons

    I'm responding to previous comment about management do treat us Hourly and management don't have no respect for us hourly. It's only a few there who care and help for us hourly wage employee.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of other and respectful of other having a job with good benefits is a blessing but being professional at all times is a must. Take management classes to help you become a better manager and team player .

    I have been working at United States Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was good while i was in maintenance plenty of overtime.

    Cons

    I was displaced into the labor gang, had my pay cut and got hired back into production. I am a journeyman electrician and scored at a lvl 5 on the Ramsey test. I got hired directly into maintenance as a learner. I was a learner for almost 3 years. I was told it would take 18 months to complete program. They shut the program down then displaced me into the labor gang because i was still a "learner". If you are looking to get into maintenace DO NOT WORK HERE!

    Advice to Management

    Get your prioritys straight. I am a skilled craftsman with 19 years of expierence. What was done to your skilled workforce was wrong. Why even hire us?

    I have been working at United States Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are prolly the best thing about this place and the pay is over all pretty decent but it's because of overtime

    Cons

    The hours are usually terrible if you think you are going to go in and work a straight day gig well good luck cause it prolly won't happen. Hope you don't have plans everyday after work everyday because you will get forced to stay over sometimes 16 hours and have also worked multiple 24 hour shifts. The environment is terrible hot dirty sweaty dusty and all types of gasses floating around suffer its just flat out nasty and dangerous everything appears to be falling apart and ready to kill you. Think you will be appreciated for never coming in late and never calling off Haha the only people that will ever notice is you and your wife. The only reason the pay is so good is because how many hours you will be working. The fear of you being laid off a couple times a year seems to be a tradition that the mill loves to instill into its employees. Besides that they are understaffed and love to tell you how you don't work hard enough. The managers are usually pretty good after you "break" them in

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers and quit crapping on them it's exhausting
