    Management Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gary, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Gary, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at United States Steel.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing managers seemed distant, concerned about what's happening at the plant, instead of what's going on in the interview. When I asked questions about their safety record, I got glossed over answers.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected - How did my college class in journalism help me prepare for the interview?
      Most difficult - Who (professor) influenced me the least at college?
       
      Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Some questions I asked were not answered straightforwardly. Interviewing manager kept looking around for clues on the wall.

    Network Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Erie, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Erie, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.
