    I have been working at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Lot of career developing and career advancing opportunities i.e. supportive management Lots to learn if the desire is there. Pay is competitive but variable compensation and profit sharing make up.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better but they are average.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal Dofasco for less than a year

    Pros

    -Very friendly coworkers, boss, and most people in general -Great pay for internship position -Interview was very relaxed and they want you to perform well

    Cons

    -No major cons, just a bit of a "boys club" but only because of the nature of the manufacturing sector -Some jobs are running 24/7 so some positions will have non-ideal hours, but the office positions have a good work-life balance

    I worked at ArcelorMittal Dofasco

    Pros

    Work/life balance. People. Good for safety and training. Vacation is pretty good too. Got to experience multiple areas and different jobs.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits. Left due to cuts. Small groups of employees are selected years in advance as the chosen group to advance to management. If you aren't in the group it won't happen.

    Current Contractor - Finishing/Crane Operator Present in Hamilton, ON
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal Dofasco for less than a year

    Pros

    It's Great pay, it can be pretty easy work, good group of guys, team leaders are great. They stress safety first. They train you to operate cranes and forklifts. One of Canada's top 100 places to work.

    Cons

    It's a long employment process, it took around 8 months to get hired with assessment, background, physical etc. There's no guarantees for full time employment. It used to be you get a 2 year contract now it's Max 1 year. You either get full time after or let go. A lot of casuals have been let go since I've been there for 10 months. I've never seen or heard of anyone getting full time yet. There's a lot of uncertainty and rumours about certain production lines going down. It's a very dirty place to work, washrooms and pulpits aren't cleaned well or at all. It's very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. 12 hour shifts switching between days and nights. It's very tough on the body clock and work/life balance. No vacation time for a year. You can give away or trade shifts though.
