Pros: benefits and seeing what you made work in everyday life.

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

Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee), Armorel, ARJanuary 12, 2013
Pros: great people to work with.
Cons: shift work
Always a challenge. A person can learn new things every day even if they've worked there for many years. I learned about steel making/finishing, hydraulics, pneumatics and lubrication systems. Co-workers are great to work with and have similar determination to do well. Hardest part of the job is the shift work, nights to days. Most enjoyable part of – more... the job is seeing what I've been able to give my family. – less

Steel Worker (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALJanuary 2, 2013
At Nucor Steel you are surrounded by people who want to work until the job is completed. This is mostly because they work on a production bonus, the more steel produced, the bigger the bonus. There are many good work ehtics that I learned while employed with this company.

Scale Operator (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALNovember 26, 2012
Pros: great time off, family oriented, fun
Cons: not enough room for advancement
A typical work day included controlling the flow of traffic through out plant site, receiving loads, checking for radiation in scrap metal, generating bills of lading, talking over the CB radio. I learned a lot about the steel industry and how it works, how rebar is produced, what is considered a good heat based on the strength and tensile a bar has – more... to have in order to be considered good product, sales, contracts, account receivable, what it means to be a team player. Management was punctual, understanding and very knowledgeable in the positions they held. Management promoted training and continuous education and self development, the hardest part of this job would be the mental agility that a scale operator has to possess, because truck drives can be very unruly, but the most enjoyable aspect of this job that you met new people, there were rarely dull days and you could always expect something new to happen – less

Maintenance Lead Electrician (Former Employee), Norfolk, NENovember 9, 2012
Pros: really enjoyed managing projects and plc & hmi programming
Cons: very hot, dirty, and stressful environment
Enjoyed being the Project Engineer on many large multi-million dollar projects. Had opportunity to attend numerous schools, seminars, and conventions across the country. Directly supervising 10 shift electricians and several contractors was most enjoyable and rewarding part. Shutdowns were long hours and could become stressfull as people were getting – more... tired. The best part of the job were the many different challenges. – less
