    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nucor (Decatur, AL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview that lasted about an hour and was with a panel of five metallurgists currently working at the facility. An onsite interview followed, consisting of three different panel interviews. Two were with the team members and the third was with the managers. The onsite interviews lasted a full work day and included a tour and lunch.
