    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA

    Pros

    I worked here for a summer and it was a great experience, everyone was nice and helpful. I learned a lot and the pay was good for a summer internship.

    Cons

    Sometimes there was a lot of down time especially when there is an outage, and sometimes people would be stressed out when there was something wrong in the mill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation was great and opportunities were there for improvement

    Pros

    Lots of highly skilled and knowledgeable coworkers to learn from and to help guide you along your career.

    Cons

    Frustrating upper management decisions and almost no ability to induce change among the union work force. Long hours with minimal comprnsation, even after repeated attempts to garnish help or an increase in salary.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive working environment where everyone takes pride in what they are doing. Management, HR, and all other workers took good care of the interns and gave meaningful assignments.

    Cons

    The plant I worked in seemed a little outdated compared to other steel mills which made it difficult to be efficient. Down time can become very long especially when the mill goes down for whatever reason. As an intern this led to some boredom after all assignments were finished and the mill was down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lobby with corporate for some up to date equipment

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Indiana Harbor, their biggest facility in the states.
    -For the most part, you get real projects that can help the company
    -Great introduction to heavy industry and safety culture
    -The company allows you to tour a lot of their facilities so you can appreciate the entire process
    -In my experience, this company does what they say and say what they do
    -They hire a lot of interns from the partner schools and you get to live together, which makes it a fun summer, I met great friends from around the midwest.
    -Living an hour train ride from Chicago is great

    Cons

    - Other interns mentioned the union relationship being tough
    - Pay for engineering interns is low compared to other industries
    - The intern program isn't standardized among the NWI locations, so some people have different experiences depending on where you work. The Harbor is nice though.
    - The area is not very nice, which doesn't matter as an intern but isn't going to be great for new hires or full-timers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training is great, but they need to find a better way to make the opportunities to go full-time seem more attractive.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA

    Pros

    Welcomes new Engineering ideas, lots of freedom to work on projects, and great project with lots of other Engineers to help. Great opportunities to travel and to work in multiple areas of the business.

    Cons

    Manufacturing plants are older, technology is still advancing, and takes time to get approvals. Also housing can be issue if you do not start looking well in advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow new employee base and continue to push technology. Opportunities in any manufacturing facility are difficult due to the pyramid shape structure so be sure that the appropriate methods of sucession are being used. Work life balance is difficult with less management to cover areas.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, with good overtime opportunities and quarterly profit sharing.

    Cons

    The retention rate for new engineers is some 40%, it's really bad here. The biggest issue is that they don't have many engineering positions and often put their engineers to work as line foremen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to us more about what we expect from the job before placing us directly into a random position in the plant.
