    Network Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Erie, PA

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at United States Steel in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with US Steel in 2013 for a Network Analyst (or similar) position. The story goes something like this:

    I met a fantastic lady at the job fair at my college campus, and we had a great talk about the metal industry (which I currently work in). She seemed very interested in giving me an interview, but warned me that my particular skills might be best suited for a position in a different department that currently had no openings. I was fine with this, because any interview experience is good experience in my book. They were nice enough to hold the interview on campus so that I didn't have to travel down to Pittsburgh. I was interviewed by two men who were very down-to-earth and friendly (one of them actually graduated from my college). It was fairly low-pressure. They ended up offering me a second interview, but I declined and said that I would keep an eye out for open positions in the more lucrative department (for me personally).

    Interview Questions
    • It's been a while since the interview, but I remember them asking about my experience with a few server-side technologies that were fairly challenging.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    There was a different department that I would much rather have worked in, but there were currently no open positions.

After a couple of months you get an interview. If you get past the interview process, you will be scheduled for a physical and a drug test (urine and hair) and they watch you as you take your urine test. If after all of this if you pass, they contact you for training before you enter the plant.

    Management Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gary, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at United States Steel in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met USS at a on-campus career fair. Received a phone interview and then an on-site interview. The HR person setting stuff didn't seem to know what she is doing.

    The on-site interview was at a steel mill. Included a HR presentation, steel mill tour, lunch, and three 1 on 1 interviews with various management from the different departments at the mill. You will be there with 5 or 6 other candidates.

    The steel mill itself was very cool, which is why I was interested. The vibe I got from the interviewers was not good though. It would definitely be a tough place to work, long hours, and rough management. The unions at steel mills are bad. They were "locking" someone up when I was going through security.
