Internship was not what was advertised
Mechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  South CarolinaJanuary 2, 2016
Going into this internship I was under the impression I would be challenged. Over the course of the summer I was there, I had done more very little actual engineering work but instead worked right along side the maintenance crew on the line. This was not bad, however its as not what was advertised to me at my career fair.

United States largest and best Steel Mill
TRANSPORTATION MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJuly 9, 2015
Great managed company that respects employee through their benefits package and being family oriented. You know what direction your career is progressing through mid and year end reviews. Spend a great deal of time on training and safety of employees which is great business practices. Learned good business ethics and how to properly coach employees. Best part of job is knowing there are other team members that are their to handle their role and support one another as needed.
Pros
very well run company
Cons
possibly over training if I had to pick a con

Great money but don't have an opinion with management.
Receiving Utility (Former Employee) –  WarehouseJune 2, 2015
This company is a great one but the style of management is just completely insane. I was told by other TM's there that had transferred from other Nucor sites that it isn't the same at other plants but they will play mind games with you. Moving up is impossible unless someone dies or gets booted so good luck getting ahead anywhere. If you are younger (18-35) you will deal with the "older generation" saying how much of a horrible worker you are because you are naturally lazy for some reason. Again, NOT a prof place to work due to management.

Good Place to work If you like being LIED too !
THe Best At What I Do (Current Employee) –  Crawfordsville, INOctober 6, 2014
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 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 !
Pros
free boots if you like the limited supply
Cons
managers & supervisors & health insurance & family time

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 like you. Job does require a lot of hours on employees part but pay is good.
