    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schnitzer Steel (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    I applied directly through the website and received a call from the recruiter about a month later. On the day of the interview, I arrived and sat in the waiting room. The recruiter delivered me to the interview room where the interviewers met me.

    I emailed the recruiter directly to ask for a status some weeks later and they never responded to my email. I feel as though if people take time out of their day to come to an interview, they deserve a simple response regarding the decision and why they were not chosen.

    Senior HRIS Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schnitzer Steel.

    Interview

    Typical initial recruiter once over, then off to the hiring manager. Was pretty quick once I got to the hiring manager. After speaking with the manager of the department who said she would be scheduling an additional interview with the team manager, I never heard back. So unprofessional. I looked at the longevity of most of the people and seems like they've had major turnover in the last 6 months.

    Laborer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Schnitzer Steel (San Jose, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very simple - didn't ask a lot of questions, they seemed to be in a hurry and it felt more like speed dating. The primary interviewer didn't show for about 15 minutes after the interview.

    Management Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schnitzer Steel (Everett, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR recruiter followed by group interview with eight I ndividuals, including the direct line manager. The setting was intimidating, and it was tough to recall all the names and keep focusing on the questions. Questions were as normally would be expected, nothing out of left field. In the end, my experience wasn't as well matched as another candidate's, so there was no offer.
