The interview procedure at ASARCO is similar to competitors. There is a common skills assessment
which covers topics including but not limited to reading, writing, speaking, and simple math. Applicants
must bring their resume with them to the interview. Some applicants go through a email screening prior to
progressing to an in person interview. Former employees have reported that it is important to show that
you are capable of handling stressful situations, working in a fast paced setting, have a flexible schedule,
and collaborating with colleagues. Once through the application process, all new hires are required to go through
a introductory training.
