USS compensation/benefits is excellent. It is family wage pay. Tough to find. I make less than half now what I made at USS. Big adjustment. USS work culture is not for everyone. That is all I got to say about that.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Nothing follows

Laid off and lose seniority. Treat employees like garbage. During a plant closing they were supposed to transfer employees by seniority the union let them do it by how they felt to do it. Union is the worst union that I ever worked for.

Company pushing in a diffrent direction.
Managment concerned with saving every bottom line dollar, and not focusing on well rounded safety/production ratio.

I loved this job for many years. The people were great, the environment was safe, and the pay was decent. My boss was terrific and always understood when I had to go and take care of something. The pay was average, but the raises were sub par. They supposedly have performance based raises, but in actuality the raises are based on their budget (when times are bad, which is often, no one gets raises regardless of performance). They also have frequent layoffs at all levels of the company.
Pros
Fun job, good people, good culture, safe
Cons
No job security, poor raises/advancement

My experience is somewhat unique as I am a Maintenance Tech. for their Tubular Central Maintenance Unit, as a result I do not work swing shift work and are able to trouble shoot and perform work all over the plant and plant grounds. This environment is great as mindless monotony is very toxic for me.
Pros
Paid benefits, great working tools, paid for PPE
Cons
Potential rotating shift work schedules, potential covering of anyone who calls off of their scheduled shift

Long hours, very few days off

Great workforce to work with. The money is excellent but the hours you have to work overshadow your personal life. Health Benefits are excellent. If Upper Management had a brain they would be dangerous.
Pros
Good Money, Benefits and Great Workers
Cons
Poor Upper Management, No Job Security

United States Steel is a good corporation to work for if you don't get layed off. I learned how to drive a forklift & operate a pallet jack both manual and electric.

Cons
Employment reliability

It is a good place to get a salary for living on temporary. However poor management makes low profitability and poor company culture. Most of all layoff happens almost every year.
Pros
Good work-life balance
Cons
Frequent layoff

This is a better steel business. They at least know who is valuable in there job. Let go of to many people who actually know how to much steel. The other steel mills are reinventing the wheel again and think white collar management know how to make steel.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Not enough experience people to know quality pipe

Management talks down/yells to employees, you are nothing but a number and a body. Management preaches safety but doesnt practice it, they want you to kill yourself doing the job as quick as you can. Not to mention the many health hazards you are exposed to. The blast furnace is by far the worst area to be. The only good from the job is the free health insurance.
Pros
insurance
Cons
managment, communication, and pay rate.
