    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Schnitzer Steel in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very simple - didn't ask a lot of questions, they seemed to be in a hurry and it felt more like speed dating. The primary interviewer didn't show for about 15 minutes after the interview.

    Anonymous Employee in Everett, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Everett, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Schnitzer Steel in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview with HR recruiter followed by group interview with eight I ndividuals, including the direct line manager. The setting was intimidating, and it was tough to recall all the names and keep focusing on the questions. Questions were as normally would be expected, nothing out of left field. In the end, my experience wasn't as well matched as another candidate's, so there was no offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Schnitzer Steel in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was about six interviews, one with each senior manager and an IQ/EQ test. They asked in-depth questions about my experience and the things I was interested in professionally and otherwise. There was a strong focus on desire to learn and ability to manage/motivate other people. I was very impressed with the calibre of the managers and the respect with which they treated me as an interviewee.
