    Pros

    Nucor very seldom lets employees go once they have made it through the application process. Job security is fantastic, and pay is extremely competitive even in the slow season. Opportunity for advancement is nearly endless. There are master tradesman of every stripe that will provide you with all the tools and training that you need to earn a certification and accumulate experience that will serve you for the rest of your life. Health insurance is comprehensive, and you get a free gym membership, which is a very nice bonus incentive depending on who you are.

    Cons

    Hours are very long (12 hour shifts). You will work days and nights regardless of which facility you are placed in. Depending on your role, you may often do more work than your coworkers, which can be frustrating. If production quotas aren’t met for the week, additional shifts will be assigned.

    Money isn't everything

    Pros

    Great place to start a career or become financially stable.

    Cons

    Most people stay or love their job because the mills are in locations where there aren't as many job opportunities and they don't want to move due to family. So, in comparison to jobs in the location, it's great. However, in comparison to jobs in general, this is one of the worst jobs I have ever had. PTO is not encouraged and you will make less money if you take PTO as a production employee. You can make good money here, but sometimes being able to take bereavement or spend Christmas with family means more than money. This is where management has the opportunity to show they care for their employees, but instead they woo them with safety speeches. The Mills are behind the times. Mostly white men make up the labor force, and discrimination is rampant. I wish more people would report their experiences, but it is hard to speak out when you want to advance in the company or keep your job. The 401k match is very low in comparison to other company packages I have seen. They brainwash you with feeling like you can't get a better job somewhere else with the high salary figure, but a lot of people forget about the benefits that go with it. That being said, if you luck into a good department that isn't as toxic, you might have a better experience.
