    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview Details

    In person interview. 3 people conducted the interview. Some people might consider a panel interview intimidating so I would say prepare for that aspect. Some technical questions about thermodynamics, tolerances, equipment fatigue and working in a plant environment etc. Many were general questions like tell me about yourself etc. They are very focused on company fit with existing personell and asked may behavorial type of questions.

    Business Process Integration Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Duke Energy in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job and heard back from a recruiter within two weeks through a canned email. I asked the recruiter a specific question about what "testing" during the interview means and was not responded to except through a canned response for the date/time for the interview. I interviewed for the job in the old building behind the fancy new Duke Energy tower. I met with two people who asked me a series of questions that had absoluately nothing to do with my skills. The questions were behavioral and were geared to expose weakness for which I did not do a good job even with military experience, 15 years professional experience, MBA, and other certifications. I waited 4 weeks and did not hear back from anyone so I withdrew my application with a note that stated if they wanted to consider me for employment that they would need to reach out by a certain date to let me know.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cary, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Duke Energy in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position through a staffing agency. They called and scheduled me for a proctored computer test at the Duke Energy office. The test was composed of sections measuring your Microsoft Word skills, Excel skills, proof reading skills, and complex mathematical equations without the use of a calculator. I am still trying to figure out why an administrative assistant needs to be able to do complex math equations in their head.

    Interview Questions
    • The Word, Excel, and proofreading tests were very easy. The math section composed of 20 word problems that you had 8 minutes to solve. Questions were very complex and involved percentages, fractions etc. You are not allowed to use a calculator. Questions were similar to those you'd find on the SAT.   Answer Question

    Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a group of people, two engineers, an accountant, and one other individual whose job title I don't recall. They asked me six behavioral questions and then asked me if I had any questions for them. It wasn't too bad but the hiring engineer said "we will contact all of the candidates by the end of next week to let them know our decision". giving them roughly two weeks to decided, but it took about seven and a half weeks to hear back saying they chose another candidate. I assumed that was the situation after a month.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview Details

    Takes forever to hear anything, but well worth the wait I'm sure. Took probably 6 weeks to get an email to go for the MASS testing. Study for this one, you're gonna need it. Also, study wiring diagrams and get good at tracing them quickly. The physical abilities testing came afterwards, if you can wipe your own butt you can pass this portion of the test. After that I was close to 2 months before hearing anything on the interview. Interview was very straight forward with an emphasis on safety.

    I applied online - interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview Details

    HR/recruiting was good and timely regarding communication. I was told I'd interview with the hiring manager but walked into a room of 3 total people. The interview was 3 parts. Talk about yourself, answer 9 predetermined questions, and then ask any questions. Everyone was very nice. I was told they'd be interviewing a lot of people, which is what I read for other interviews on this site about the company.
