    I have been working at Nucor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    When the steel market is good the pay is more than what most jobs out in their areas will pay. There is freedom to come up with ideas to improve the process and implement them at your design. Safety is held to the highest standards. 4 days on, 4 days off schedule is good when not having to work extra. Profit sharing pays well into 401k for a good business year.

    Cons

    The pay is not consistent at all, based on production bonus. When told to come in, not specifically covering a shift, you get only a third of the pay because you won't be getting paid production bonus. Nucor is growing a lot as a company, and it is turning away from placing value on its employees and turning to doing what it can to please share holders and raise the bottom dollar. Electricians are stretched extremely thin, there is no one "on the bench", so when one quits someone else has to shift into a different area or the rotation changes to 5 days on 3 days off 12 hour shifts if you're lucky. I came on having to do 6 on 2 off. Most people live far away so a 12 hour day takes up the whole day.

    I have been working at Nucor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Paid off of production bonus which ups the paycheck a lot some weeks. For being a steel making company the safety margins are kept very well in the positive. 4 days on, 4 days off

    Cons

    Rotating shift work with 12 hour shifts, working in/around heat often.
