Interview Details –
STAR format, look it up online. be very detailed in your answers making sure to cover each point of the STAR, especially the R, which is result. It consists of 5 questions, and the interview is usually just with one person. There's usually a question regarding when you used excel/access/some other tool for completing a task, some question about organization, some question about needing to get something from someone not responding I think? I don't remember them all exactly.
So, for STAR format, as opposed to a "what would you do in this situation?" it's more like "name a time this situation occurred to you and what you did." So come prepared with a bunch of stories of experiences and things in your head and situations from previous jobs that could be easily modified to answer the specific question being asked.
Interview Question – The question about safety threw me off because I had only worked a food service job in high school before interviewing. It went something like: name a time when you noticed a safety issue and did something to correct it. STAR format response obviously View Answer
Negotiation Details –
All student jobs are set with rates that apply to everyone. The way I understand it there is an engineering rate table and a non-engineering rate table. From there, the tables are broken by credit hours (or class standing, 4 different levels)
Engineering rates go something like $12 for freshmen, $14 sophomore, $16 junior and $18 senior. Those could be +/- 50 cents or so, I don't recall the exact breakdown. I have no clue about the non-engineering rates.

Interviewed at DTE Energy
Interview Details – Applied for job online. Got contacted by recruiter a few weeks later. Had a face to face interview with 3 managers. Structured interview format looking for responses in STAR format.
Interview Question – The questions were multi part and you had to answer every part. Answer Question
The process took 1 week - interviewed at DTE Energy in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was contacted by phone through HR and was given an interview. The interview took place in their headquarters in downtown Detroit. I only had one interview, and this was with a department supervisor and a senior engineer. The questions were pretty standard, nothing really technical was included. The interview is conducted on the STAR system, so answering was not as straightforward as in typical interviews. I strongly advise that candidates practice the STAR interviewing process beforehand, it can be tricky to answer questions if you're not used to it.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you knew you weren't going to be able to meet a deadline, what did you do? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at DTE Energy in September 2010.
Interview Details – The company called and asked if I was available for a phone interview, if not to schedule a time. The interview asked very basic questions about why you want to work for the company and teamwork skills, nothing to test if you had the knowledge needed for the position. That was the only interview and I was called a few days later and offered the position. Didn't find out who my manager was or which specific group I would be in until new employee orientation.
