    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at United States Steel (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Short phone interview with HR followed by an hour long, in-person interview with management and HR. Overall, the process took about 4-5 weeks. The phone interview was a typical phone interview, mostly just going over what is on your resume and going over basic questions about yourself. The in-person interview was quite casual with somewhat of a conversation vibe at times. This allowed both the interviewers and myself to get a good idea of what I had to offer and what the position entailed. However, the interviewers still asked the majority of the questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain to us a project you completed in a past internship or work assignment and the solution you found.

      When have you found yourself in a leadership position?

      Have you experienced a situation where there was miscommunication? What did you do to solve it?

      Why do you think you would be right for this position? (Pretty much in any interview I have been in, no matter what the job is for, this question is always asked in some form. So, be ready for it.)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at United States Steel (Gary, IN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at United States Steel (Fairfield, AL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The interview began around seven in the morning with them giving you a basic run down of events that will occur throughout the interview. The mill I interviewed at was hiring for the pipe mill and the flat roll mill, so you interviewed with management from both plants. Expect to be interviewed by four or five different people at each plant. The whole interview process felt like a check the box process for every person that interviewed you and then it was pass them off to the next person.
