    Pros

    Decent pay and workers are great

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible, inconsistent pay practices, safety first motto but lacking the actual effort to go with it, always chasing the shiny new plant while ignoring basic maintenance in plants already running, and generally just running equipment into the ground. Most current plants probably won't be running in 20 years.

    Pros

    Benefits are free -health -dental -optical is actually terrible

    Cons

    Dangerous work environment, US Steel covers up injuries to avoid OSHA recordable incidents. And if you do get hurt at work BEWARE of ON-SITE US STEEL MEDICAL they ONLY have the company’s best interest at heart, they will minimize your injury and put you back to work and have safety folks hiding and watching you to make a safety error. If your work ethically and honest. This will not be a good fit. The Union are good folks, but will only go so far for you. But, if you are injured on-site you report it and US Steel will put a bullseye on your back and will dig through every single word you wrote down on your job application and do a complete medical background check to find anything to fire you with, including if you accidentally put on paper you started at a job 10 years ago in February, but started in March. If you are willing to fly under the radar, work hurt, never complain, accept you don’t get personal and sick time and don’t get your first weeks vacation till AFTER a year. Come on in. But beware.
