    I have been working at Nucor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can make as much as the time you want to put out. Doing many different tasks during shift

    Cons

    They really don’t want you to have days off. Made to feel guilty about wanting a day off. They really like to cover their but by having you sign off on things that don’t even pertain to your daily work. As a laborer they are constantly training you but are never given the time to actually perfect what you have learned yet when someone calls in you are expected to be just as good as the guy who has done it for years. They claim to be worried about safety but this is where you signing off stuff comes into play. Nucor’s customers constantly give Nucor a chance to correct their product yet Nucor gives employees no second chance to prove theirs

    Advice to Management

    It would not matter. Nucor is always rite

    I worked at Nucor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Committed to safety & environment, treats employees well. above average compensation for manufacturing jobs. Management is above average. Culture is strong & meaningful. Many long term and multi-generational employees. I really enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    Shifts are a bit wonky for people working on the floor, but many days off in a row as well. Management does get a bit bogged down in the noble quest for improvement

    Advice to Management

    Be careful not to create too many well intended yet reactionary programs/committees which create too much noise to signal ratio when working towards improvement. Continue being awesome
