    I worked at Nucor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was good benefits were ok hours depended on the job and location. I thought it was a great place

    Cons

    Put in 13 years of honest work between 2 divisions. Got treated like a number not a person. Trying to schedule things outside of work was a nightmare because shifts were cancelled all the time. Management doesn't care about the "teammates" only the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new managers

    I worked at Nucor as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good pay
    tons of location across the country
    lots of opportunity for career advancement if willing to relocate

    Cons

    Internship program wasn't great. didn't get much out of it
    need to be willing to move to pursue career advancements
    random HAIR FOLLICLE drug tests for ALL EMPLOYEES

    Advice to Management

    The random hair follicle tests are outrageous in my opinion. engineers get tested too. if you fail your fired on the spot.
    the intern program places you randomly at one of the divisions across the country so you could ending up doing a job you dont like or have any interest in like me
