Why Kids Want To Be in the Steel Business When They Grow Up.
AT NUCOR, WE HIRE THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST, then we give them the freedom to spot problems and solve them on their own. Finding ways to be more productive, we reward productivity with pay-for-performance, and weekly performance bonuses that can potentially double their take-home pay. We provide a scholarship program for every child of every employee for every year of their post-high school education. In our company's history, we have never laid off employees for reasons of not having enough work. And as any self-respecting kid knows, Nucor is a favorite of Fortune and Forbes, annually making their lists of America's top companies. We are highly ranked as a career choice with astronauts, firemen and cowboys.
