    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed 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.

    Team Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at United States Steel (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    The hiring process was quite slow, with multiple people performing long interviews. Some individuals had poignant questions filtered into the mix of the typical interview script, while others didn't appear to even appear to know what the job truly entailed (should've been my first clue not to consider their offer).
    After the tedious interview process, I had to wait weeks to hear anything.

    Interview Questions

    • I usually go into an interview process inordinately prepared and did not consider any the questions I received to be difficult or unexpected (unexpected would require originality or creativity which is in very low supply with USS). This also should have been a major warning not to accept their offer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was thrown a lowball offer initially. I immediately countered and received a slow counter (slow is a watchword with this company). After I rejected their counter I actually received a revised offer with some speed which was still unsatisfactory. They countered again, but it was so slow I actually had to call them and tell them I was going to accept another job offer the following day if they wanted to try to counter again. They gt back to me that same day and I accepted (never should have- I should've taken the other offer and run!).
