Shift Supervisor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in May 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted about a week later to take a online management/leadership test. A couple of days later, I was contacted by HR and offered an interview. Interview consisted of two separate interviews on the same day, one with the division manager and one with a two person panel consisting of the managers I would be working for. It was a very good experience and the questions were behavior based, (Situation, What did you do and what were the results). Seems like a great company to work for with good compensations and benefits. No offer yet.

Financial Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA
Interview Details – I had a first round interview with ArcelorMittal. It was very straightforward with behavioral questions based around leadership and teamwork.

Senior Financial Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in June 2011.
Interview Details – had my resume posted on careerbuilder/ monster job search sites. was contacted by a third party recruiter about one of the positions he was working on. to my surprise it was an actual position. met with the headhunter in person for an hour or so. over the following couple weeks he was in touch with the hiring manager who decided to bring me in for an interview. we met for an hour or so to discuss my background. what i like was the willingness to work around my schedule. at the end of the interview the hiring manager set up a day/ time for me to meet with her boss and a colleague. i met with the boss, the hiring manager again, her boss and HR. 3 of the 4 went extremely well. HR was a mess. extremely rude and condescending. the HR rep accused me of being a job hopper and said that they werent looking for someone like me who has a history of changing jobs. i immediately called the headhunter to let him know so that he could counter attack the disruptive HR rep. no luck. the hiring manager ended up going with someone else and as i expected it was due to longevity concerns. smh..... it shows that sometimes the hiring manager really isnt the true decision maker
Interview Question – no unexpected questions. just be sure to convince hr that your would be committed to the company and have solid reasons for any job changes Answer Question
Mechanical Engineering Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in January 2013.
Interview Details – They 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
Negotiation Details – They require interns to have a car as public transport isn't available to their plants which was an issue for me but they seemed pretty confident I would be able to arrange a carpool since most interns live in nearby university housing.
Research Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in May 2008.
Interview Details – hiring process was smooth, you get a phone interview, followed by a site interview if you are shortlisted. They take care of your flight, accomodation, and other expenses. You deliver a presentation to an open panel of future peers and then do several one-on-one interviews with your department key people and other key people from other departments. Then if all is ok, you get a call within a couple of weeks with an offer letter, with reasonable negotiation allowed.
Interview Question – you will be asked very technical questions in your field and outside as well to show your ability to wotk in a multidiscplinary environment. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – reasonable
Financial Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA in November 2010.
Interview Details – Pretty typical interview process. First interview took place on campus at my university, second round interview took place on site at the company. Very laid back experience. All interviews are behavior based and really not very difficult. Mostly a fit interview. If you have secured the interview, more than likely you are qualified in their eyes. They are now just looking to make sure they would enjoy working next to you. So just be yourself.
Interview Question – Most difficult questions related to competitor information. The steel industry is normally something most young college students have little knowledge about. My suggestion: just do your due diligence to prepare for the interview by researching the company and its competitors and you will be fine. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Did not attempt to negotiate myself, but I have heard that the ability to negotiate is dependent on which facility you are assigned too. I believe some facilities are willing to budge more so than others. Take your chances, you won't lose your offer over an attempt to negotiate as long as you conduct it professionally.
