Overall Reviews at Nucor

Crane Operator | Plymouth, UT | Jan 13, 2020
loved working with bonus system
I loved the supply and demand side of the business. Never subsides by the government. No union. Have to work as a team. You have to always give 100 percent effort.

Nucor Construction
Nucor Construction is located in NYC Family Own Business and great to work. There is very little chance to grow as the current employees have been employed for many years.
Production Lead | Tuscaloosa, AL | Dec 25, 2019
Good place to work
Hard work but it pays well. The team members are great to work with. Management is a bit controlling. It was a good experience for me but I was ready to move on to a career where I could retire without being crippled.
Maintenance Coordinator | Birmingham, AL | Aug 8, 2018
Productive and fun place to work with at Nucor
Great and motivated people to work with. You will learn a lot about the rebar and flat bar industry. VPP Safety Program which provides you up to date Safety Rules and Regulations with OSHA.

A long way from civilization in Ghent, Ky
This company is located deep into Kentuck, close to Indiana on the Ohio river (40 miles into Kentucky from Ohio). Like ll steel mills with pollution, it is in the middle of farmland, which might siut some people ok, some not.

Questions And Answers about Nucor

How much do entry level production workers make?
Asked Jan 18, 2017
Nucor work make their money through bonus checks. So if the mill part gone down you pretty much out of luck. Base pay is what it's call you might bring home 500 at it's best if the mill goes down. But when it's running you bring home top dollars.
Answered Dec 28, 2019
Entry level maintenance I made over 80k my first year without much overtime. It's now the end of my second year and I will gross over 120k.

How long does it take to get called for an interview ?
Asked Nov 7, 2016
I applied through the Nucor website and received and email 10 days later saying I would need to take a test. I took that test a week after the email, so around 17 days after applying. I passed the test and was called in for an interview 2 weeks later. After that interview I had two more interviews two weeks after that. I was asked to give some information for a background check, as well as asked to submit a hair follicle exam. Those took around two weeks for the results to come back. From the time of application, to my actual first day as an employee, the process took about 8-10 weeks. Disclaimer: I knew NOONE that worked for Nucor. No family members. No friends. NOONE. Anyone that tells you that you have to know someone to get in is BITTER and just couldn’t meet the cut themselves.
Answered Jan 24, 2020
I applied here off indeed. once I got thru the assessment test, I got the email for the interview. only took about a month from the assessment test to get the email. I got turned down after the interview.
