Electrical Engineer Interen Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
University City, St. Louis, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in January 2014.

Interview Details – hey recruit pretty heavily at my university so I talked to them at the career fair. I got signed up for an interview the next day on the spot. Interviewed one-on-one with a recent alum (about 4-5 years out of school) who first talked about what he has worked on at Arcelor and then asked about my interest in the company and the field, had me walk him through my resume and asked a few specific things about experiences and skills listed. They had 30 minute interview slots booked all day after the career fair and it took up all of it. Saved about 5 min at the end for any questions I had. I talked to three recruiters throughout the whole process and all were extremely sociable and funny.

About 2 weeks later I got a call from an HR manager informing me of the offer and some of the details (Indiana Harbor plant, $17/hr (dependent on graduation year, I'm a sophomore), $1650 living stipend for the summer) and followed up shortly after with an email with the full offer.

Interview Question – He asked about 4-5 behavioral STAR questions; Name a time you worked successfully as part of a group, name a time you had to seek help from someone else, name a time you overcame something unexpected, name a time when you were forced to work in an uncomfortable situation or environment and asked a few follow ups for each one while taking notes. Pretty standard interview questions   Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied through college or university and interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA.

Interview Details – Applied for job through university career services. Had the first interview with an older manager and a newer analyst. After a few weeks I received an invite to the East Chicago plant for the final round interview. There were five of us that got invited, we signed in and did our paperwork then went off and did four one on one interviews with different managers of the department. We then had a chance to meet with some of the newer analysts over lunch and ask about the job. A few weeks later I got a call with the offer. Hair drug screen, urine test, and medical exam must be passed prior to your first day.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary is not negotiable but vacation time is. They will not mention it, but they offer a very generous relocation bonus upon accepting the offer, so don't let that hold you back from accepting.

Operations Technology Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
East Chicago, IN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA.

Interview Details – Interviewed with 3 managers onsite in the continuous improvement group. Also interviewed with the senior division manager of continuous improvement. Received offer within 1 week.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. Easy interview. Show your technical ability / computer ability. You must be good on the shop floor and dealing with all levels of management. Why ArcelorMittal? Mostly behavior based questions based on your past experiences. Use the STAR format (Situation, Task, Action, Result). Research the company of course before hand and talk about how you like working on the shop floor and getting hands dirty.   Answer Question

Financial Analyst Associate Interview

Financial Analyst Associate
Burns Harbor, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in September 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was like any other behavioral interview and all answers were expected to be answered with the STAR approach. There were a lot of similar questions that they wanted you to be prepared to answer. It is good to know about the company and being that it is a steel company you should know that the surroundings you may be put in may not be the most luxurious. Overall, the interview and hiring process was a good experience.

Interview Question – Why are you better than any other candidate interviewing for the same position?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Associate Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
East Chicago, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in June 2012.

Interview Details – Met with the recruiters an a local career fair. Provided my resume and said that I was interested in a position requiring more math (previously I was working as a project manager). Had a follow up phone interview. This led into an interview with three of their employees. Those employees were mostly one level below the VP of purchasing which led to the job offer.

Interview Question – I was describing something I did in my econometric's class regarding looking at public metro's in different cities, their population densities, and hoping to find some relationship between those and their finances. The person I interviewed then asked me to delve into the details which I wasn't entirely prepared to do (the class was a few years ago), but I muddled through it.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Limited ability to negotiate. I was brought on as a temporary which then turned into a full time offer. Regarding negotiating the full time offer, I checked with my company "mentor" (somebody with lots of experience but outside of your department" about figuring out how competitive it was. As it included a promotion, raise, full-time offer, benefits, etc., he said that I should not use the political capital necessary to get a few minor concessions at the time and take it as is. I did.

Project Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
Burns Harbor, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in May 2010.

Interview Details – They use behavioral based interview questions. Each interview lasts for approximately one hour. First interview was on campus for 30 minutes. Three interviews on-site for one hour each. All interviewers were from my field of study and provided feedback about the position, expectations, and job duties. I was given a choice on location with minimal information on each option. I chose the location that I interviewed at because it was the most familiar.

Interview Question – Describe a time that you experienced an unexcepted change. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question

Associate Engineer- Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
East Chicago, IN

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in June 2013.

Interview Details – It was a pretty straight forward process. I worked on a project for Am through my university. So when i wanted an internship, I asked them and luckily they had an opening.

I was contacted by the HR, I did well in that interview. I was given an offer, because I was recommended by the group I would be working for. So I really do not have too many inputs about the interview process. However, i must mention here that, their full time hiring process is really challenging.

I witnessed three interviews and I can tell that you will be tested on all possible fronts if you want a full time job at AM.
