    I have been working at Nucor full-time (more than an year)


    No shortage of challenges keeps things interesting. Safety is absolutely the number one item discussed and the least tolerated policy violation, it's that important.


    The bonus pay structure is highly unusual for any plant type job. The pay is just under other major employers in the area, but 3/4 of it is production bonus, which means that other plant jobs in the area pay slightly higher day to day, and they enjoy a genuine annual bonus, usually amounting in the thousands of dollars. Our last profit sharing check was just over five hundred, kinda disappointing. Vacation pay is a percentage of normal pay, which discourages people from using it. If the plant stops producing for any reason, employees receive base pay (twelve to thirteen dollars per hour is average for most persons working in operations, environmental, and maintenance). We have been on base pay for a week now due to underengineering of a process component (beyond our control) with no definite date of restarting production. This has caused many of our people to begin seeking other employment opportunities at local plants such as Motiva, Marathon, Occidental, Mosiac, Exxon, Shell, Methanex, and many others in the immediate vicinity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand this is how Nucor has done things pretty much always, but this is not a steel mill. When this plant breaks down, it is usually for at minimum a week, usually longer. Speaking as a concerned employee who thought he would retire with Nucor but has began seeking employment elsewhere, the bonus and the pay are not as great as is touted during the hiring process or at the employee meetings. I implore the management to research the other plants in the area and arrive at this conclusion for themselves. If something doesn't change (which seems very likely since management is unreasonably stubborn on the point of the bonus structure) this plant will most likely become a contract-run facility with little or no Nucor teammates remaining.
