      Worst Job I've Ever Had

      Aug 25, 2021 - Anonymous Employee

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay and good place to start a career. No layoffs (they'll probably just find a way to fire you if they don't like you so they can keep saying they've never had a layoff)

      Cons

      New CEO and a lot has changed. This rating is under the new CEO, Leon. A lot of sales talk. They'll promise the moon to keep you around, but never deliver. Your experience will be different depending on your location or department. Some places are great, others are not. There's a lot of bullying and harassment that takes place and gets brushed under the rug. No flexibility. You have to work holidays. There used to be raffles, performance bonuses, and other gifts like grocery gift cards around Christmas. They used the pandemic as an excuse to do away with it all and not bring it back. Managers and supervisors preach about training opportunities, but are quick to remind you that they are higher up than you and therefore smarter and your opinion is irrelevant. They say they promote internally first, but that is no longer the case. They claimed to take care of employees during the pandemic, but the "COVID pay" was a huge pay cut. Production employees have to take a pay cut in order to take a vacation due to bonus structure. Base pay without bonus is very low since it is so bonus-heavy. Overall, very very toxic work environment with a lot of bullying. Eventually you have to decide if the pay is worth the abuse, which is why a lot of employees stick around. The benefits aren't great either. Lower than standard. It is not the same Nucor, and it changed for the worst.

      Pros

      Great job security (no layoffs), good pay and depending on your job there is good time off.

      Cons

      During outages 80 hour weeks are common. During breakdowns you have to stay until it is fixed.
