    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nucor (Blytheville, AR) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Got connected through university. Made arrangement over email, then visited plant to interview with department manager and two direct reports (sub-managers). Everyone was nice, professional. Interview was pretty casual, not specifically structured- didn't seem to be going by a pre-set list of questions. Asked about my work experience and ran through my resume. I'm pretty good at drawing relevant stories from all my past experience, and they seemed to be impressed.

    Other class peers that I know well were also interviewed. I was concerned that it fell through, because it took about two weeks to hear back, but I got the first offer and accepted it.

    Everyone in the place was really nice and positive, even just passing people in the hallway. I think the things that made me stand out were my age and work experience compared to my peers, and my blue-collar background. Although this was an office job, it's a very down to earth, "worker" respect culture.

    Interview Questions

    • The main questions involved a series of projects and ideas that no one had time to follow up on. They asked what I might be able to do with those ideas in the time given, and how I thought they would be important or help.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. This was for a set, arranged internship program. Housing was provided for the term and the pay was generous for a short-time internship.

    Interview

    Two to three interviews before the final result, interviews are long and can be tiring. The panelists are experinced people with tons of knowledge. They believe a lot in hiring interns for full time positions and so it can be an important interview.

    Interview

    Resume was sent in by a friend who had worked here previously. Resume was reviewed internally, after which I was offered a phone interview. Typically, I believe they offer on site interviews, however, I was hired kind of late. I received an offer letter approximately a week after the phone interview was conducted. Travel to site was reimbursed and housing was paid for all summer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nucor.

    Interview

    It was on-campus recruitment. They had several events throughout the month where you could spend time with the recruiters and learn more about the company. I had previously done a lot of these events and develop a relationship with the recruiters, along with being able to tour a facility with my college. I talked to them at our career fair and was called later in the evening asking to schedule an in-person interview the following week. I then had an interview with 2 recruiters, one of which I knew and the other I did not. We sat on either sides of a table. They asked a lot of questions, and important ones, but it was relatively casual and relaxed. They also give you an online assessment to fill out with some personality type questions and some critical thinking questions. After a few days I received an email with a general offer for the company and then was sent my assignment later on.
