    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Indiana Harbor, their biggest facility in the states.
    -For the most part, you get real projects that can help the company
    -Great introduction to heavy industry and safety culture
    -The company allows you to tour a lot of their facilities so you can appreciate the entire process
    -In my experience, this company does what they say and say what they do
    -They hire a lot of interns from the partner schools and you get to live together, which makes it a fun summer, I met great friends from around the midwest.
    -Living an hour train ride from Chicago is great

    Cons

    - Other interns mentioned the union relationship being tough
    - Pay for engineering interns is low compared to other industries
    - The intern program isn't standardized among the NWI locations, so some people have different experiences depending on where you work. The Harbor is nice though.
    - The area is not very nice, which doesn't matter as an intern but isn't going to be great for new hires or full-timers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training is great, but they need to find a better way to make the opportunities to go full-time seem more attractive.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA

    Pros

    Welcomes new Engineering ideas, lots of freedom to work on projects, and great project with lots of other Engineers to help. Great opportunities to travel and to work in multiple areas of the business.

    Cons

    Manufacturing plants are older, technology is still advancing, and takes time to get approvals. Also housing can be issue if you do not start looking well in advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow new employee base and continue to push technology. Opportunities in any manufacturing facility are difficult due to the pyramid shape structure so be sure that the appropriate methods of sucession are being used. Work life balance is difficult with less management to cover areas.

    Current Employee - Supply Chain Analyst in Gary, IN (US)

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are the best part about this job. Better than most other companies with health care and retirement plans. Development is also stressed through various training.

    Cons

    Roles and movement are not clearly defined. If you are looking to move up, there is no plan. A lot of the workforce is retiring so there will be potential in the future, it just isn't clear when that will be possible. Not very challenging work, so it is hard to feel like you are actually learning.

    It was okay

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People wanted to succeed as a whole, it was pretty nice working with both manufacturing personnel and staff. As the largest steel manufacturer, it felt like the company had a good grip on the market.

    Cons

    It was understaffed and underfunded at my particular location. There wasn't enough resources to get work done well--everything was done just to get by. It felt like putting out fires instead of succeeding.
