Current Employee - Manager says"There's ZERO career development. US Steel used be a good company for personal growth but there is no training, mentoring, rotational assignments, advancements, salary increases, NOTHING. Culture of Caring is fake. Executives and upper management take no interest in people. USS used to be a close knit family culture, where everyone looked out for each other. They don't care about your personal circumstances. Don't care about your family. And don't care what happens to you after they kick you out on your butt after devoting a lifetime. RUN far, RUN fast."

Maintenance Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) says"Very outdated culture and manufacturing processes. It does requires a tremendous amount of hours. You are on call every day and night, but they do provide a company phone that you are to maintain at all times. An extremely hazardous place to work. Noxious gases, molten metal, bursting pipes, serious injuries, fatalities, cancerous chemicals and dilapidated structures. However, it is a crash course in manufacturing and exposure to heavy industrial systems unlike anywhere else. Free coffee.Lots to learn fromConditions"
Mechanical Repair Technician (Former Employee) says"Management rules by intimidation. We where always under staffed. You where never given enough supplies or tools to work with and wasted countless amount of time stealing things from each department because area management would get bonuses for not spending money. It is a very dirty work place with dangerous work at times. They talk safety until they need sometime done fast. I was exposed to asbestos for three day as my supervisor lied to me saying it wasn't asbestos. I asked why weren't any signs up warning us of the danger and my area manager told me you guys never read those things anyway. We would have to change shifts at least two times a week sometimes three different shifts in one week. You would be lucky to get one weekend off a month. No matter what it wasn't done fast enough. You where never told good job are anything like that. It is a very hostile intimidating environment.Decent payIt is a very dangerous unsafe place to work."

someone who got laid off, doing an awsome job (Former Employee) says"Company as a whole has a terrible quality system in place. Upper management ignores quality problems and solutions for them. Company is going down hill. Only bright spot is future connections but wit quality system the way it is, it wont be long before customer issues arise. So if you want management to pump you up and praise you everyday for doing a good job and want to get laid off, this is the place to go work.good benefitsQuality managment and the way they treat employees"

Mirel B says"Lost money with this seller. - I returned the desk on my own expense after I received it really smashed; - They said significant extra damage was brought to the desk (not true) and just refunded me 70£ out of 260£ (how much I paid for the desk + transportation) They were really rude as well. In my communication with them I've been told things like: “you should be ashamed of yourself”; “DO NOT CONTACT US OR OUR BUSINESS EVER AGAIN” "get on with your sad little life” "You obviously dont have a full filing life" I was NEVER rude to them and I NEVER threatened them. I did tell them once that I will post bad reviews if they don’t solve the issue (which is one of my rights) and that I will contact my bank to return the money (which is again one of my rights). In the end, I’ve spent 260£ on the desk + postage and some "bonus" insults that no customer should take."
