It's a great place to work for the people of the region.
Industrial Electrician (Current Employee) – Gary, IN – August 21, 2016
Generations of my family have given life and limb for the steel mills in northwest Indiana and I'm tired of the monogamy sacrificed for the skill that I have. It's time to make a change in the lifestyle that I live and to show future employers why I am valuable.
Shift Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) – Gary, IN 46402 – August 18, 2016
The hours are long, the work is difficult, the feeling of a job well done is often tinged by the fact that you still have a million other things to do. Change is very slow and money is always tight. The culture is stuck in a mind set that won't allow for future progress and growth.
MTM (Former Employee) – Gary, IN – August 16, 2016
Daily we were given our work list and there was hardly a day that we did not have equipment to work on. I was able to learn how to manage my time and be able to fulfill my daily duties within a timely and safe fashion.
In the early years I worked there, noting but positive attitudes and production of some of the finest steel ever produced
Stocker/Shipper (Current Employee) – Lorain, OH – August 12, 2016
In the 1970s when I hired in there, it was a great place to work. The 1980s saw the formation of new Quality programs, such as Statistical Process Control, formation of teams created with the managers and wage roll employees called Quality Circle Teams. The teams helped to contribute to various ratings such as the Q1 rating and other quality awards signalling our efforts to continuous improvement of our products. However, a change in owners and management saw all of that dissappear in the coming years.
Good working environment, positive attitudes.
A change in management saw all of that dissappear.
Assembly line work for the oil and gas industry. Produced pipe used for the oil and gas industry. Worked a station on the assembly line 12 hours a day. Forklift operating, material handling, quality control.
Product Technology Intern (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – July 28, 2016
Working here was like watching my grandpa watch the TV on mute, it just seemed like there was a lot of things wrong, old and outdated with everything. Safety was not very well maintained as two people died in the plant in Zugg island during my tenure as an intern. Pay was really good for interns, and the stress levels were pretty low, it just seemed like a lot of capital equipment was lacking and a lot of things could be improved or updated.
Utility Technician II (Current Employee) – Granite City, IL – July 14, 2016
Good company to work for, with great benefits. No opportunity for advancement or growth. Swing shifts are difficult on family life. Co-workers give a wide variety of personalities making workdays interesting. Dangerous conditions make safety a top priority. Learned accuracy is most important for production and customer satisfaction. Most enjoyable part of the job was the relaxed conditions in our department, including management trusting employees to be self-supervised.
Benefits, pay and independent working conditions
Rotating shift work, dangerous and no advancement opportunities

Stove Tender (Former Employee) – Fairfield, AL – July 1, 2016
Even though Pittsburg decided to close the Fairfield Works plant in Fairfield, Alabama it was still an awesome place to work. Great pay and benefits. The management were knowledgeable, and had some of the best co-workers to work with.
United States & Germany Staff Sergeant (Former Employee) – Gary, IN – June 28, 2016
Knowing what had to be done and completed. I learned everyday how to be more professional and skilled at my job I respected and liked our management staff very much, because they knew what we were expected to do. Liked working with my co-workers very much. With the many years we were together, we became very close. The hardest part was working in inclement weather. The most enjoyable was the comaraderie we felt working together.
Lathe Operator (Former Employee) – White Hall, AR – June 25, 2016
I really enjoyed working there. Only thing I did not like were the lay offs. The supervisors were great and easy to get along with. I loved all of my co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with people that you grew to know and love on several task that you have mastered.
