Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MO – July 26, 2018
Work intensive production based culture the hardest part is balancing the meetings to the required work load and managing time that is needed. The people are fun individuals, and interact away from work.
Bluescope is a great place to work. they have decent bennifits, a good and diverse cultural environment and good training and advancement opportunities. Safety takes top priority here. The hardest part of the job is the long hours that come with the busy season.
community and family oriented
long hours when busy but also times where very slow and hours lost
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 17, 2018
A typical day at work is physically draining. I learned not to trust coworkers here. The lead-man were very discouraging often saying things to the new hires like "You're pathetic", "I can break a rule or two because I'm a boss. "The workplace is very gossipy. There is more drama in the workplace than in a Tyler Perry special. The hardest part of the job is dealing with slander from employees close to the higher ups.The most enjoyable part of the job is getting paid every week and leaving every day.
Productive, friendly and motivating enviroment place to work.
Welder / Machinist / Web Cell Operator (Former Employee) – Laurinburg, NC – March 6, 2018
My work experience at Bluescope has been a great learning and motivating time of employment for me. I've been employed with Bluescope for over 20 years as a welder, machine operator, line leadman as well as other various jobs I have done. The team work of employees coming together to accomplish company goals was great. I enjoyed my time working for Bluescope this organization has taught me a lot. As I proceed to move forward to my next career I will bring with me the knowledge and training that I acquired while working for Bluescope.
Plasma Operator (Former Employee) – Evansville, WI – March 1, 2018
Fast paced but stressful. If you dont hit goals, termination is an option. Lots of saturdays to work between April and December seeing as its a construction related business. Fair pay. Insurance could be better.
Production Coordinator (Former Employee) – Evansville, WI – February 24, 2018
The work was interesting and challenging. The condition of the plant and machinery was very poor. The culture in the plant was difficult do to the indecision of the management staff. Blue Scope Steel is a good company to work for. The staff in Wisconsin needs to be more decisive and open to suggestion. They could also use a bit of humility.
Work was good at Bluescope, loved the people I worked with and the people I worked for. I learned a lot with the company like welding and running machines that welds and punches hole into metal and cuts. The management was good and really professional. The culture was good also and everybody was trained well and knew what they was doing on the job. Nothing to me was hard about the job except the plant closing down and we all lost our jobs.I loved what I did. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the people and management we was like family.
CNC Operator (Current Employee) – Evansville, WI – January 21, 2018
No work life balance. All vacation days must be be approved by the plant super and they wont let you use vacation if they want production. The Union is ok but is totally seniority based so if you want anything, you better have been there for a long time.
CERTIFIED FIELD WELDER (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 20, 2017
This was a great place to work if you don't mind traveling. The management is fair and respectful and pay is equal to experience. I enjoyed my time with this company and would go back if I decided to travel again.

Welder/Fabricator (Current Employee) – Laurinburg, NC – October 5, 2017
I would love to stay here with this company but due to business decisions they are closing the facility which is why I’m seeking for employment. They offer relocation packages with the company but I’m not willing to relocate to another state.
