I enjoyed working for Nucor most days, but I hated it some days. Glad to have moved on.

Pros

Nucor is a great place when steel prices are high and production is good. To move up you have to work a lot of overtime, but the money is good. No union which is great.

Cons

Be careful. It can be dangerous.

Advice to Management

Make sure your supervisors are not "yes" men and that they will stand up for their crews. You should offer some financial advice to your employees. I knew a supervisor who made six figures and lived paycheck to pay check. Very sad to see.

    Pros

    Pays well with lots of advancement opportunity when the mill/company is doing well., but the opposite when the market or mill is underperforming. People are good to work with.

    Cons

    Long hours with very little flexibility. Hot and dirty,

    Advice to Management

    After 2 years of start-up, employees need the same rights as running divisions. Including time off and the ability to transfer for a promotion.
