    I worked at Nucor-Berkeley

    Pros

    Good pay, Great people. Use to be a great place to work

    Cons

    When GM left around 2008 he was replaced by a moron who doesn't care about the employees. Home office (CEO, COO, etc..) care more about stock holders than employees. Founder of Nucor is greatly missed

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees like you did when Mr. Ken was still around

    I have been working at Nucor-Berkeley full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    4on/4off schedule. Co-workers are pretty good to work with. Money is decent.

    Cons

    Upper Management promotes the brownnosers no matter how incompetent they are. It does not matter one bit if you are a good worker or not. If you do not suck up you won't get promoted. It also seems to be policy now to run off the veterans as they cost to much to keep as they have a lot of vacation, and cost to much in insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the workers better as they are the backbone of NUCOR. On the route you are now taking, you are now just another company, nothing special about you!

      I have been working at Nucor-Berkeley full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      4 on 4 off schedule (when fully staffed), above average pay, non-union, great work culture in most areas, great location, profit sharing, decent but not great medical benefits

      Cons

      lean management hieracrchy therefore limited room for advancement unless you're willing to go to the middle of nowhere, rarely fully staffed so your working a lot of OT with a small amount of off time to turn around in between shifts, no real training just OJT, 401k matching is a small fraction of each dollar, responsible for 33% of total medical bill (in-network), %50 (out-of-network)

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

      Pros

      Very positive work culture with lots of empowerment from upper management. Unlimited scope of developing creative solutions and seeing them through implementation. A workaholics dream job. Personal growth can only be limited due to lack of initiative.

      Cons

      Work expectations make it difficult to strike a work life balance. Poor vacation and time off benefits. Have to relocate to get promoted.

      Advice to Management

      Need to come up with creative retention strategies and lucrative benefits to compete with other companies. The newer graduates need more than 2wks after about 5 years of service. If the pay is comparative but vacation is more lucrative elsewhere, they will get the minimum experience and leave.

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

      Pros

      Great pay. Great benefits. Will pay for you to go to school while you're an employee. Care about employee safety. Have a lot of employee benefit programs. Room to advance. No fear of layoff. No union which allows more production.

      Cons

      Hard work. Takes a toll on your body. Like any job some people are willing to step on people to get to the top. Because it's a great job within a well respected company they have ultra high expectations. This is good but sometimes it means they leave no room for legitimate employee issues to be handled in a way that helps an employee out. The person who left the 1 star negative review I believe was in my department....

      Advice to Management

      Listen to employees more. Sometimes we do things that look good on paper but the guys in the plant that work with the material day in and day out can tell you if something will work or not.
