    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Nucor (Dallas, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was somewhat technical, although they seemed to be trying to get a feel for my personality. Then plant walk through, which was theoretically to give me an idea of working conditions but seemed more like a vetting process. Then technical interview, which was supposed to be a technical panel interview, but was cancelled several times. Company did not seem very well organized, although interviewers were polite.
