Great Company to Work for Depending on Division
Chemical Analysis Technician (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – August 3, 2018
Birmingham, AL Division - Great company to work for, but the Birmingham division is very up and down though. Management makes very questionable calls at times and just because you go out of your way to help them, doesn't mean they will return the favor. Require you to work swing shifts and results in extreme difficulty maintaining a normal life. Great pay with how little manual labor that is involved in most jobs, as well as great benefits. This division of Nucor is awful at taking the considerations of how managerial decisions effect the lives of their employees. Furthermore, its really about who you know at this place when it comes to advancement and your overall treatment as an employee. If the employees' overall best interest, including the affect of decisions made on their personal lives, were truly taken into consideration, and if every employee had the same considerations for job advancement and placement, rather than being based on how good of friends you are with certain people or supervisors, it would be a great place to be... except for the swing shifts that is. Never the less, that is not the case here. It is still a fairly good place to work, but there is no question, Nucor Steel Birmingham has more than plenty of room for improvement, even after the new GM was hired at the beginning of 2018.
good pay & benefits, stable company, great job security
no breaks or lunches, 12 hour swing shifts, unfair job placement, advancements, & scheduling, inconsiderate & questionable managerial decisions
