    I applied online – interviewed at DTE Energy.

    The process consisted of a pre-hire assessment, phone interview and an in-person panel interview. The process seemed fair. There was also an opportunity to talk about highlights from your resume and ask questions at the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    60 minutes shoehorned into the smallest conference room with 3 interviewers. Each has a list of vaguely relevant questions, to which they are expecting answers strictly in the STAR format. Anything outside of this technique is met with confusion. At my interview, it was clear that the interviewers were not familiar with the resume they had been provided. They were so focused on the mechanics of the interview questions, they did not pay much attention to the answers. I was not hired due to lack of experience in a large corporate environment (despite working at General Motors for 7 years).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very formal and impersonal interview - need to understand STAR format. I received an email to fill out a background document and then was invited to do an in person interview. I interviewed with three individuals. They asked a few background questions of me and then launched into the STAR format, scenario-based questions. Following the interview, I had to take a one hour writing test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at DTE Energy in November 2014.

    Interview

    The company usually hire from within, every year they have over 7 thru 15 applicants. They only take about 3 to 4. There is alot of favoritism there, but everyone has a chance, be unique. All the questions they ask you the star method questions. There is no technical questions. you are interview by 3 mangers from different field. They take a long process to decide. In my case it took 2 months.

    Senior Manager, IT Infrastructure Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in February 2014.

    Interview

    External recruiter phone screen; internal recruiter phone screen; face to face. The interview was an extremely formal STAR style interview, probably for EEOC purposes. No deviation from the script. The two interviewers were heads-down writing most of the time, without much feedback. I was talking to the tops of their heads, kind of unsettling - I didn't learn a thing about them, the organization or the challenges they face. Question asked, answered, writing furiously. You didn't know if your answers were resonating or if they thought you were insane. It's their process, but not one I am fond of. Give me a whiteboard and a case study and I would outline a solution, ask me about a time when I had too many competing priorities and I can only answer "every hour of every day, for a total of more than 40,000 times over the course of my career"

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me not to disclose specific questions, which I will respect. Remember situation-action-result structure for every answer; don't give opinions or expect much discussion. Questions appeared to have been written by committee and were all about projects you worked on - no questions that revealed leadership style/experience, business acumen or people skills despite the fact you are managing an org of 50 people. STAR interviews are fine for younger people, but they don't make much sense for senior level people as they do not give you the chance to discuss your body of work and how it is relevant to the job. I left without them having any idea how I recruit, develop and lead people, if I beat my people or whether I have any financial skills. Too bad, I would have been a perfect fit.   1 Answer
