    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Approves of CEO

    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.

    Current Employee - Exit Bander in Trinity, AL
    Current Employee - Exit Bander in Trinity, AL

    Pros

    The 4 on and 4 off rotating 12 hour schedule gives a lot of time off when you are on it, they change your schedule quite frequently at the cold side. The pay is the motivating factor.

    Cons

    There is a huge buddy system here. A lot of Nucor employees that were denied promotions for several years (17+) at other plants have transferred to this new plant and have been promoted to supervisor due to lack of management choices. The heat and dust is a problem, employees just have to make due.

    Advice to Management

    Communication with all employees, way too many secrets about schedules, business climate and just routine daily operations. Just because a person can play golf doesn't mean they are the best or earned the next promotion.
