It's a union place, so unless you have a relation or a connection, you're probably not getting a job there.

I know people that work there, and it's not an easy job but it's pretty good money. I don't know if you have to "have a connection" to get hired out there, I doubt it. Good luck, and I hope you find the job you're looking for!

Thank you... I've worked in steel mills the past 11 yrs and I'm use to most of the conditions. Just heard about the place and decided to give it a try.

It's pretty hard to get on there if you don't know someone. Plus you have to have a highschool diploma/GED as well as some college to get on there now. You have to pass a physical, drug screening and more. The work is pretty hard but the benefits and pay are great. I THINK the start out pay is now 18.70 an hour. It is a great place to work if you can get hired. I think they are doing some hiring right now, so it wouldn't hurt to try!

I work there as well. If you have been working there for years, maybe things have changed or maybe its just my department. You can look on the Missouri workforce website and it will show you jobs at Noranda that are open plus the start out pay for those positions. That is where I found the opening when I started. Here is the post from the website:

There is no job that pays 11 or 12 dollars hour at noranda. 18.70 is the lowest pay grade. If you start in the potroom it's a pay grade 21 that's like 22 dollars a hour. I'm a pay grade 18 and I make 21.57 a hour. So I don't know where u work not noranda.
