Lab Tech (Former Employee), Decatur, ALOctober 30, 2014
Pros: great pay/benefits
Cons: questionable decisions by mgmt
Safety culture is top-notch...pay potential is way above area average...mgmt is only okay, with questionable decisions that have resulted in a drop in job satisfaction, especially for the metals lab, where they made a difficult job even harder

Good Place to work If you like being LIED too !
THe Best At What I Do (Current Employee), Crawfordsville, INOctober 6, 2014
Pros: free boots if you like the limited supply
Cons: managers & supervisors & health insurance & family time
Stay AWAY if you Can ! Mgmt an most supervisors Have no backbone an would throw you under the bus to save their own rear ends . Your Opinion only counts if it polishes the EGO of the Management or supervisors . Safety First is what they preach , but when the paint dries Its Profit Over Production . People have DIED because of this place . Shut down – more... clean up n keep running !! Your Better Off Being A Contractor In The GMs Pocket. Its really nice when your Boss has 0 experience in your Dep. but a test score said He\SHE is a perfect fit an you have to train them ! – less

Overall great company, Marion division needs improvement
former employee (Former Employee), Marion, OHJune 17, 2014
Overall Nucor's culture is fantastic but the Marion Ohio division does not follow the same culture. I've worked at other divisions before transferring to Marion. Benefits are fair - not the best but certainly could be worse. Dealing with managers is the hardest part of the job in Marion but that could change at any time. Advancement depends on if managers – more... like you. Job does require a lot of hours on employees part but pay is good. – less

Very productive and enjoyable place to work
Lead operator (Former Employee), Huger South CarolinaApril 23, 2014
Pros: benefits and seeing what you made work in everyday life.
Cons: extreme heat
Safety meeting at the start of every shift. Completed the process of making steel from raw form to end use for the customer.
How to make steel from raw form to end use for the customer. How much steel is used in everyday life.
Management is very appreciative of the employees but they were very demanding when it came to safety and quality of the steel.
We – more... were a very diveresed group of people that became a very
close and team orentiated group of employees.
Working in extreme heat.
Making the steel and learning how much steel is used in everyday life. – less

Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee), Convent, LAApril 13, 2014
We start the morning with a safety meeting and then go out into the field to provide maintenance, repairs, or critically think new ways to benefit the company by providing more effective work. The company treats the workers as equals with everyone as member of the same team with the same goal in mind.

Great Co-workers
Electrical Technician (Former Employee), Auburn, NYMarch 17, 2014
Pros: pay, excellent co-workers
Cons: dangerous, poor management decisions
Learned a lot, made me a better leader and co-worker. They provide a lot of perks, employee dinners, game nights etc.... Depending on who you are you could make a mistake and get fired or you could make several and get a promotion. Very anti-union. If you mention union too much you will be fired but it will be for something else that the lawyers can – more... get away with. I would imagine that after working at a place like this your life expectancy after retirement would be short. A lot of hazards in the air that don't make the pay worth it not to mention the explosions that you constantly have to avoid when the steel process goes wrong. – less

good job, if you are allowed to do it. Corp.over promise, under deliver.
Billet Crane Operator, utility, Train switchman (Former Employee), Bourbonnais, ILMarch 20, 2013
Pros: schedule.
Cons: management, definitely the weakest link.
The work is good and honest, easy to stay busy. Easy to move up if you blindly follow, don't ask questions, and repeat catch phrases. Management is the weakest link, they promise the world and deliver little. Very cliquey, to the point of making a new job title to put some one "special" in an office. Some cranes still in use are WWII era, some even – more... derail. Very diverse workforce. Worst part of the job is there is absolutely ZERO regards for how much or how well you do your job. Best part of the job is the schedule. 7 days off in a row every month. – less

Excellent experience in heavy equipment operation in steel industry
Material Handler/Shipping Operator (Former Employee), Decatur, ALJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: excellent pay....and some of the best free coffee i ever had!
Cons: rotating shifts
A typical day began with equipment safety inspections in material handling/shipping of coiled steel. Shifts were 12 hour/rotating , 4 days on/ 4 days off. I learned safe operation of pole trucks and overhead cab cranes in loading coiled steel onto OTR trucks and railcars. Management and co-workers joined together to continually meet or exceed shipping – more... deadlines. The hardest part of this job was adapting to the rotating (days/nights) shift. The most enjoyable part of this job was establishing friendships with people whom I had never known! – less
