    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ThyssenKrupp in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Recht geradlinig, sie melden sich ein paar Tage nach Erhalt des Lebenslaufs. Sie klären ein paar Dinge am Telefon, keine technischen Fragen. Das zweite Gespräch ist wahrscheinlich in Düsseldorf, vielleicht haben sie auch woanders eine Niederlassung. Es sitzt Ihnen ein kleines Gremium gegenüber, hauptsächlich Abteilungsleiter, die nach dem LD-Verfahren und der Geschichte von Thyssen fragen.

    Pretty straightforward, they contact you a couple of days after you send in your CV. They clarify a few things on the phone, no technical questions. The second Interview is probably in Dusseldorf, maybe they have offices elsewhere too. You have a small board sitting in front of you, mostly supervisors asking you about the LD process and Thyssen`s history.

    Interview Questions
    • Ich war überrascht, wie technisch die Fragen waren. Normalerweise kümmert sich das automatisierte Computersystem um den Großteil der Fragen, so wie die Verhüttungstemperatur, TRT Druckanzeige, Instandhaltung von CDQ Batterien.   I was surprised how technical the questions were. Normally the majority of what they ask is taken care of by the automated computer system, such as smelting temperatures, TRT pressure indicators, CDQ battery maintenance.   Answer Question
