Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Moolap VIC19 June 2019
The work was easy once you knew the job, but some higher level staff were quite rude. But overall most people make the place enjoyable. Good money, very good OH&S.

Logistics Leader (Current Employee) –  Forrestfield WA1 April 2019
Really enjoy working at the WA Service Centre. Healthy office culture. Not too many politics. A bit removed from main manufacturing centre. This has good and bad things associated with it.

Process Technician (Former Employee) –  Hastings, Victoria Australia28 March 2019
Good pay, great family/life balance. Work is fairly easy, but can be mundane. Process driven positions, which can sometimes do not allow walking away from.

Productive and an incredibly rewarding workplace
Finance Analyst Intern (Former Employee) –  Port Kembla NSW25 March 2019
In a typical day at work, your team greets and assists you in fulfilling your operational as well as strategic targets for the day. The management is incredibly welcoming with a huge emphasis placed on making employees feel welcomed from the get-go. The hardest part about the job was not feeling challenged enough whilst the most enjoyable part was the flexibility on offer at BSL.

Awesome place to work with terrible management
PROCESSING OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Hastings VIC13 March 2019
I enjoyed my time at Bluescope Steel but the way they run things leaves a lot to be desired. for example the operations management doesn't even get to decide who works for them which leaves the place never at full strength.
Pros
amazing work life balance
Cons
terrible management.

Shift work. But I did a lot of afternoon shifts. A typical day at work was to complete jobs provided. Used to a 120 ton press to fold flashings for new homes. Got along with other employees while I worked at the company

A typical day at Bluescope
Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Lyndhurst VIC23 September 2018
Bluescope is a family orientated company. The work is fast paced and strenuous but the satisfaction at the end of the day is immense when confronted with the finished product and realising that your endeavours and toil will probably contribute to an icon building somewhere in Melbourne. The comradery amongst workers is a huge plus, making the day enjoyable.
Pros
Long term job
Cons
heavy work

busy days with satisfaction of a good days work
Roll Form Operator, Forklift Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Emu Plains NSW24 July 2018
Great Homegrown/overseas company. Always busy with plenty to do. A lot of thinking and planning and problem solving which makes for a great work day.
Hardest part of the job working in a factory which reached into the high 40's with only industrial fans blowing hot air onto the workers.

SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Tamworth NSW23 July 2018
Traveling the north west selling the company product and addressing any problems the customer may have with the company. Providing knowledge of the product to the best of my ability and if I didn't know the answer to a question I would contact my superiors and seek the right answer. In short: provide excellent customer service.
Pros
Company car and good salary
Cons
staying away from home so much

Great crew of workmates
Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Melbourne Eastern Suburbs VIC18 March 2018
Chopped and changed with no reason for example even the startup toolbox meetings could not be decided on the location by the ever changing management it seemed to be only wanting to justify there position (that went down the ladder to supervisers/team leaders) resulting in a confused and stress sutup. This of course filtered to stressing all.The chop and change way caused many mistakes which resulted in a "blame game mentality"or "us against them". Probably a clear example was going for the Xmas shutdown period which for years had some food or a couple of hampers up for winning in a raffle and even a small ($20) gift card jesture to not even a five cent Xmas card each. Not good for moral !!
Pros
Most of my workmates
Cons
The decision makers not listening to who they should be (common theme).
