I was just wondering if anyone knows what's on the test that they give @ Nucor Hickman. I am scheduled to take it next week and was wanting to study for it a little bit. Thanks!!!

Maybe this will help you some: How long is a battleship? true or false.Had you rather walk to school or take your lunch?How far can a dog go into the woods? Half way or he will be coming out. Hope this helps you some.
Goodluck

Good luck with it. It's just common sense stuff, but a waste of time. Only about 2% of people are ever hired because of this "test". You have to swallow and/or be family or sleeping with one of the bosses to be hired. Hickman is the worst one to work at anyway after I found out how the employees were treated. I have 5 family members stuck working there, wishing they didn't have too. Sorry to have to tell you this, but you need to know. NYS is a little better though.

It is alot like the old nationwide tests that you used to take in school.

You see 4 pictures, which two are similair. You see a square with a piece missing, now select the piece that would fit. Here are a sieries of 4 numbers, which number should be next.

It is all multiple choice and mostly tests for reasoning ability.

The test isn't that hard just basic math,reading and comprehension. If you pass the test you have kiss ass and lick balls in the interview and also know somebody who works there to get a job.

I call BS on a bunch of you. It is no longer Nephews Uncles Cousins or Other Relitives, out there. A lot has changed. The initial test is basic knowledge and tests your level, of that knowledge. If you do well, then you have panel interviews with verbal testing to prove you actually know what you say you do. You must earn your position by proving your ability, knowledge, and willingness to show up for work. Although it never hurts to know someone, that will not get you a job, or keep it for that matter.

You notice something common in most of these reply's. You don't have to know someone but it helps.

Hey roller coaster, pull your head out of your a@@. If you really think this, you're really an idiot. They still have you brainwashed. 90% of the jobs at the Nucor mills are for people that can't do anything else. Where would they work without Nucor? They are bodies waiting to be killed or badly injured. I hate that so many people HAVE to work there because of money. Do you people have any idea of the total deaths since these mills opened. More than all the other factories in the area combined. I know because I have to go to these accidents. The test is nothing but a cover up! I have turned jobs down at both mills because of their "we are holy attitude".

I am very sorry that you are unable to get a job at either mill. I do think your resentment is based on the rejection you feel. You are a sad, pitiful excuse for a human. I sense that you spent weeks crying over not getting a job out there and then your sadness turned to madness. I hope I haven't ticked you off too bad cause I really don't want you spitting on my burger, next time I go to McDonalds.

to the best of my knowledge while i was at the hickman mil there was only 2 nucor deaths one in 03 in the cold mill and one in the melt shop in 07 not to speak bad of people who lost their lives but both broke cardinal rules the kid in the melt shop was a close personal friend in and out of work he worked for me several years as a lab tech then changed jobs at the time of the accident he was on a different crew when i got the call it tore me apart i just sit and cried i thought the world of that kid nucor puts the employees safety first there has been so many times i have had to write people up over safety it is unreal john ferriola told me i dont give a crap if you have to shut the shop down over a pair earplugs you will do it NO QUESTIONS ASKED! when it comes to safety you can compare any nucor mill to any other mill and i bet nucor has the best record i have been to most not all nucor mills and they are all run different than the hickman mill i hated the hickman mill sam kellie crain lisa hickerson you name it they are not true steel workers not the people just the management i used to run donna reams off the deck when she would come up because of her hair couldnt stand her and everytime i did i got a call from sam or eric hampton i was so glad to see eric go back to crawfordsville yes the hickman mill sucks but it is apart of nucor which is a great company i just wish john ferriola would come and have a private meeting with the production people and hear what has went on

Nothing major, like the Hampton problem, gets fixed at Hickman unless coporate gets involved. Comella doesn't care. When Parrish was there, it was a diffent place to work. Now, it is all politics.

You folks that are unhappy with management are the ones who can facilitate change. Do something about it. We don't have these problems at our mill because enough of us banded together and complained about the BS.

Also, airing out your complaints on a public message board doesn't speak to highly of your character. I'm sure the personal attacks will follow and that's fine. I could care less.

That has been tried. Camella always backs the manager, right or wrong. The only time anything gets fixed it when coroprate gets involved.

YOU are exactly the type of Nucor retard I was talking about! I told you I turned down those jobs, NOT "didn"t get" one. I have 2 degrees and have made more money than any of the people that work shift work.
It's the politics and people's shoe laces hanging from other people's azz's that make Nucor such as bad place to work.
Prime example; at NYS there is a female with no degree that works in HR and has been promoted not by her education and work performance, but by her "other than at work performance". Ask her bosses wife!

Wow, you guys are cynical. My husband worked at Nucor for over 22 years and yes things have changed but what hasn't. I've been an RN for 29 years and believe me that's a profession that has changed drastically. One thing for sure in this world is nothing ever stays the same. Another thing is there is no perfect job. I'm not brainwashed because I've never worked at Nucor but I am grateful that my husband did. He's worked at dead end jobs with crappy pay and I was thrilled when he was hired Nucor. I can tell you this, he never kissed a** or swallowed and when he left he had a freaking fantastic 401K. I went to college and risked my health every single day with exposure to aids, hepatitis and every other disease you can imagine and I made a hell of a lot less money than he did. I worked weekends, holidays and all shifts. When lock down occured due to storms, snow or whatever else they felt like keeping you at work, you didn't go home-if you did it was considered patient abandonment and you would not only loose your job but your license. It could last for several days. That's just the tip of the iceberg. My suggestion is if you don't like it leave!
Good Luck finding a job that compares to Nucor!!!
It's tough out there!

I think that if you have worked at the mill for so long and have done so much hiring and mentoring you would spell YAMATO correctly..........I'm just saying
