    Pros

    Good work/life balance (normally). Great people to work with. When the market is good the paychecks are great. Very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Very market driven. When the orders for steel aren't there then your paycheck reflects that. You do not have a consistent pay amount from week to week so budgeting becomes a challenge. Medical plan isn't as good as you would think a company of this size should have.

    They work a lot of hours when they are busy and your family doesn't see you. Promotions are based on who you know not what you know

    Pros

    Nucor Steel is a versatile steel plate manufacturing company. They value their team members and provide necessary training to enhance your abilities. The shift work is excellent working 4 days and then 4 days off between shifts alternating between day and night.

    Cons

    Coverage is required all the time so when a team member takes vacation another team member must take the shifts. You can easily work 6 days straight and possibly more if their is training held on a off day. Bonus pay fluctuates based on production and the market.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize training held during off days.

    Pros

    I felt like I had some control over what I made.

    Cons

    in response to a review that said they were forced to work 6 12 hr shifts in a row. I was forced to work 14 12 hr shifts in a row, due to multiple vacations taken by others. the meetings and trainings can add up to over 14 hours in a shift when scheduled on working days..

    Advice to Management

    why do the bean counters get free time when attending meetings and training?


  10. There is plenty of freedom to implement great ideas that improve operations.
