Great learning place

I worked there as an apprentice and learned so much as we were working at different plants, heights, confined spaces, gas areas and places that need your complete attention all the time.Cardinal rules kept us safe as they'd rather lose you as worker by sending you home than losing your life,that's a great value for life.

Pros

Meal tickets when working overtime, since you'd have eaten your lunch that saved time and money

Cons

Hazardous places that needs one's full attention and long hours if the machine is broken

Highly stressful and fast-paced.

I loved working at ArcelorMittal because I love the fast-paced tempo and I learned something new everyday. It was challenging and I gave it my all everyday. It was awesome when we as a company met targets which meant that we got a performance bonus well worth it.

Pros

You work on your own, own office, telephone, cellphone.

Cons

Long hours. Salary not according to what you put in. Management very white still.

Incentives for doing good

Humidity inside of the Melt shop.

No team spirit

Not much to say, wasted 1.5 years there, promised the world and got nothing, learners are just there to use people for cheap labor and that's all. Could say that if you against your foreman, the team will be with you but watch your back at all times

Pros

Enough time to rest

Cons

Dust all over.
