    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Lansing, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I first came in contact with Arcelormittal at my school's career fair. I talked to the recruiter there, gave her my resume, and we scheduled an interview the next day. I got to the interview site and waiting in a room full of interviewees for other companies and was soon called in to do the interview. The person who interviewed me just graduated this past year so he was young and energetic. Definitely felt more comfortable than a regular interview.

    Financial Analyst Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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.

    Associate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Chicago, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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 Questions
    • 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.

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

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shelby, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went for a face-to-face interview at their facility in Shelby OH. It was an 140 mile round trip with no mileage compensation. I had a decent interview, but never got any feedback. Plus, the interviewers never replied to my emails or phone calls. It seems rude not never provide a reply to a candidate after a face-to-face interview.
