Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nucor in Sep 2022

Interview

Had a teams meeting with the recruiter that went very well. Asked me to describe my work and some of my experience. I was scheduled for a panel interview a couple days later. I arrived 10 min early, checked in and wasn’t seen till 20 min after my scheduled appointment. Besides an employee coming out to make a copy and telling me someone will be with me, I felt ignored and my time was obviously not valued. The panel was made up of a group of managers and supervisors. The structured questions definitely need to be reviewed, the questions were almost identical and didn’t allow me to explain my actual role or experience in the job I was applying for. One of the gentlemen yawned twice as I was talking. I bored myself with the repetitiveness.

Interview Questions
  • Explain a time ((Insert situation here)) and tell me how you ((Insert generic goal here))

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nucor (Brandenburg, KY)

Interview

It is a lengthy process. Generally, you will have a couple of phone interviews. If selected off the phone interviews, you will be invited to an onsite interview with a "panel" of 3 to 4 current employees. After this interview, if you make it you'll be asked to come in and interview with managers. Survive this round and you'll be scheduled to "speak" with the corporate psychologist. The interviews are very rigid, all interviewers have a set of preselected questions from an interview guidebook. It's all very formal and forced. If you survive all rounds you may hear something in a month or so. Most good candidates have already found other jobs by the time this group gets around to making any offers.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of safety related questions... and name something you did in a previous job that helped save the company money.
