    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at United States Steel (Granite City, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, 5/6 month's later got called in for assessment test (easy). Few weeks later I got a phone interview then an in person interview. The interviewer was nothing but a robot and could care less how you answered. don't think she even made eye contact with me. She just simply ready the questions that were on the paper in front of her. Next was the full physical. I got fitted for a respirator and subscription for eye protection was sent you into the system. Blood, urine and hair test for drugs. They even sent me home with a temporary fitted respirator to use when I got my start date. About a week later, I got a letter from Sterling (their hiring company). I was excited to see my start date only to be floored with a letter informing me of their job off resignation!!! They took back their offer because of my background check that had charges on it from more than 10 yrs ago!!. Things I did from when I was a teenager!! WOW!! after all the hoops they made me go through and the time I had to take off my current job. You would think that if they didn't like what they seen they would have me toned at the beginning of the whole hiring process.
