Ups and Downs - good work when you can get it
Rodman (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC18 April 2018
Rodbusting at its best on the west coast; unfortunately work is sporadic when the rest of the city is booming.

Managers and supervisors play their favorites and do little unless you are willing to pay tribute to them.

Typical Large American Corporation
Plant Manager (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON29 November 2017
It use to be a great place to work. Once Nucor took it over now its all about numbers. Even the employees are just a numbers. They want production results without investing in machinery. It is such a shame. After 30 yrs of dedicated service I was tossed aside for no reason. Middle management is not a safe place to be.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Upper management

Great company with great benefits. This is a very hard job. A day in agony is a day in the life of an Ironworker. You should have a hard skin to work hear. Not for the faint of heart.

Detailer
Detailer (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS15 May 2017
Manager needed to be appeased. Enough said. The fellow employees were great and the work was fine. No training was provided however. The radio HAD to be on all day and we weren't allowed to wear our own headphones because the manager wanted to be able to yell to all of us at once without waiting.

Sheer Operator (Former Employee) –  Leduc, AB13 January 2017
was there for I think 6 years and made it to one of the highest positions we could get to before moving up to foreman. so that being said in order to get that position the foreman would have had to quit or get fired and that wasn't going to happen anytime soon.
