    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Port Kembla (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Port Kembla (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BlueScope Steel in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process started with a recruiter interview, followed by joint interview with Group Manager and HR representative. If you progress the is a 2-3 hour long online test to complete on three areas: comprehension, verbal reasoning, and maths. The maths one is not easy - but not because the questions are challenging, but rather due to a hard to read layout, and convoluted questions. I believe I got all the answers right, but it timed out on me at about 80%. If you pass, you are referred to a basic medical test (breathing capacity, hearing, heart rate, eye sight, etc.). After all this you can expect to receive an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • It's an extremely process oriented interview with structured questions around commercial transactions, negotiations, and sales skills. Q: How would you persuade your client to sell on your behalf (to their own customers)?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Very limited scope to negotiate but worth to try. Especially if it's backed up by proof of why are you worth more.

    Engineering Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BlueScope Steel in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was hired through a contracting company. I know several other people who interviewed who were not selected due to their "lack of interest", so if you're interviewing, make sure to speak up and ask questions. Everyone was polite, if intimidating, but they'll also feed you any line you need to accept if they decide to make an offer. Do not expect to be hired on if you start as a contractor; most never are, even if you work LONG after your initial contract length has lapsed.

    Interview Questions
    • Very normal questions - describe an experience where you were in conflict with an authority figure, what are your best and worst traits, etc.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation - I was offered a number and I could accept it or turn it down. Period.
