    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Olympic Steel in May 2014.

    Interview

    A lot of difficult questions and job skills that were not listed on job posting. Expect begin teaser questions and detailed computer hardware test questions. The bar is set really high on this job to meet qualifications. Exceptional skill sets required so if you are exceptional you won't have any problems. If you are just good then skip this interview and look elsewhere.
