    Programmer/Computer Science/IT Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portage, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at United States Steel (Portage, IN) in October 2018.

    Interview

    First a phone interview, then a face to face interview at the plant. I used glassdoor to review some questions, and reviewed STAR questions. Received offer next day after face-to-face interview, where I interviewed with 2 personnel/management from BSC. Interview was a basic STAR/behavioral interview with some questions off my resume (volunteer experience, explain work experience etc...)

    The longest part was the drug test and physical test, which I had to set an appointment for at the plant's medical office, and they only had an opening 2 weeks later. Then, I had to get an approval from my doctor before I could start due to an abnormality on my EKG so it took even longer. They will cut your hair for drug test and due an intensive physical (you need to fast day prior).

    Procurement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at United States Steel (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    I was scheduled to interview with 4-6 individuals. Many of them were unavailable so they randomly sent in people throughout the office to interview me. It was a couple hours of basic questions about background and some behavioral style questions.
    After the interview, I followed up, thanking them for the opportunity to talk with them regarding the position. They never emailed me or contacted me to inform me that I would not be offered the position or that they decided to proceed with other candidates. Obviously, after a month, I got the message; didn't really bother me because I got a better position with a better company, but completely unacceptable practice in my view.
