  • ArcelorMittal’s S-in motion product line, launched in 2011, identifies a catalogue of 43 key vehicle parts that together reduce the weight of a modern 5-door C-segment vehicle by 22 percent. These advanced steel solutions offer the most competitive life cycle emissions profile of any competing material, allowing today’s automakers to achieve safe, affordable and fuel efficient vehicles.
  • In addition to providing steel solutions that help reduce emissions for the vehicles on our roadways, ArcelorMittal USA also supports the growing need for public transportation to address the challenge of traffic congestion in America’s cities.

Sustain Our Great Lakes’ mission is to restore and protect fish, wildlife and habitat throughout the Great Lakes basin. This is accomplished by leveraging funding, building conservation capacity, and focusing partners and their resources on key ecological issues.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA full-time for less than a year


    Very good internship program. Given a chance to do meaningful work and present to people that matter at the end of the summer.


    Not the most exciting industry. Only $15 an hour for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smart people, but aging. Seems like a rapid move up the food chain is unlikely, even if you're smarter than the rest.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ArcelorMittal USA.

    Interview Details

    I originally submitted a letter of interest and résumé on my university's online career service center. About a week and a half later, I was invited via e-mail to select an interview slot for the interview day. I was also invited to their info session the night before interviews. Attend this if possible! If you can mention a certain point or two in your interview, it shows you cared enough to attend and think critically about their presentation and business. My interviewer was impressed with this and the fact that I got my end-of-interview questions from points mentioned there. The interview was simple and behavioral and lasted about half an hour. It was conversational and informal, a true learning experience for both sides. Then I was called about a week later and offered my job. HR is very pleasant to work with to get your summer set up for you.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked 3-4 main questions with smaller individualized follow up questions. First he went over my résumé and we talked about the main academic project I completed from school (only one really as I am a sophomore) and my experience at past jobs. Second he asked about why I was interested in working at ArcelorMittal. I talked about being part of an industry that drives a lot of critical industries in society and is a real leader and solutions provider. The last question I remember was "What is your ideal work environment?" I said one that is diverse, collaborative, and SAFE! You will very likely get this question, do yourself a favor and mention safety. ArcelorMIttal employees pride themselves on their Journey to Zero (work injuries) and improving safety standards. Make it your goal to mention safety at least once in the interview no matter what. Hope I helped, guys. Practice and do well!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Intern pay scales here are pretty structured from what I understand. I know some people asked for slightly different start and end dates and those were approved as far as I know.
