    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Nucor.

    Interview

    Long and time consuming- submit application, wait at least a month, take an assessment, and do in person interviews with 2 or 3 panels of 3 people each. Seemed like it could have all been accomplished in one day instead of spread out over months

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nucor.

    Interview

    They employed the good cop/bad cop strategy. Interview went on for over an hour and was painstakingly miserable. Made me feel so small and they just kept asking me to elaborate further and further whenever I gave an answer. One of them, they were both male, made a comment that they were already married and weren't looking for anything when I mentioned my boyfriend in an answer and they both laughed hard. It was really weird and made me feel uncomfortable. I walked out in the end not even asking when I'd hear back by because I would never want to work for this company.
