    I applied online – interviewed at Constellation Energy Group.

    Interview

    First I talked with an employer at my college's career fair and apply the intern position on their website. About one month later, I got the phone interview invitation. Some interview questions: How much do you know about energy markey? Basic statistics problems. For example, rolling dies.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group.

    Interview

    It was a campus recruitment process, they gathered up resumes and then made phone interview decisions. Thus far I have only completed the phone interview. They went over work history, where do you see yourself at the company, etc. Overall a positive experience. They seem to have wanted questions at the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group (Baltimore, MD) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Called from an external recruiter first saying there's an opening and asked if interested, then had a phone interview with HM and another phone interview with HR. They decided to bring me to the office after the first phone interview with HM, and the second one with HR was just the routine process. Flied to their office almost a month after the first phone interview. Met seven people in total, each for 45 min. Almost all questions are technically based, especially energy based. People were young and nice. Office was crowded. Recruiter got back to me after three weeks saying they decided to look for some more experienced candidates. It seems they're still interviewing some candidates with PhD, while I only have Master.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group.

    Interview

    The process seemed more challenging than it might have been because it involved people from parent-company in Chicago as well as Baltimore. Phone interview with recruiter followed by face-to-face with hiring manager and key business partner/peer, then third round with multiple senior leaders. It started off very urgent, then seemed to drag. 'Agenda' for all-day interviews with multiple people didn't include job titles or address/parking details (which were the same as the first face-to-face, but still), and interview date was only in subject of email, not body. Initially there was no one to host me for lunch or information/recommendations about what to do for lunch. It seems silly, but how well one is taken care of during recruitment can be interpreted as a reflection of how one will be attended to/thought of when an employee, so those little details matter. Schedule changes came the day before and the day of, when new people were slipped into the line up/times changed. All-in-all, I think the recruitment process reflected the challenges the company still faces in balancing the merger integration demands. A lot of nice people trying hard, and...things are hectic so details fall through the cracks. That said, I'm still sad I won't get to be there to help.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group (Lusby, MD) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Was contacted within a week of applying. Hotel was paid for. It was a whole day event including other candidates. It started off with breakfast, some ice breaker, meeting other engineers and a info presentation. There was a tour of the plant following by candidates taking turns to interview with a panel. The interview lasted approximately 20-30 mins. I am still waiting for a follow up...won't happen for another month or so...pretty long lead time after the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group (Baltimore, MD) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online. HR lady emailed me 2 days later. Had a brief preliminary interview with her and was succesful for next round of phone interviews. The "Director" I interviewed three days later seemed disinterested in the phone interview, like it was a chore to do it. I honestly wish once you are successful with the preliminary interview with HR, you should be invited to a personal 1 on 1 or group interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group (Louisville, KY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online, the recruiter called me within a week for a brief interview. She wanted to know basic job skills and salary requirements. I refused to talk salary with her but she demanded that it was company policy. During the interview at the actual office there were two people who interviewed me. One did all the talking the other lady sat there with her arms crossed and literally asked nothing. I have not heard back from them so no call, email, letter, or nothing. Constellation takes a strong stance against letting candidates know their status at any time. Very poor interviewers just based on the lack of respect they showed.
