Highly motivated production team
Pickle Line Lead Operator (Current Employee), Huger, SCJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Compensation
Cons: No Lunch breaks, production employees eat on the shop floor
Nucor features a production based compensation program. So the amount of salary made depends on a crews willingness to produce despite any mechanical or electrical issues that may arise from time to time.

TRANSPORTATION MANAGER (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 9, 2015
Pros: very well run company
Cons: possibly over training if I had to pick a con
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.

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.

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 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 !

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.

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 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.

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 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.
