    I applied through the website and received an email asking to set up an interview time withing 3 weeks. The interview was with 3 people: the head of the department I would be working for and the heads of two other closely related departments. The interview was very relaxed and straightforward. There were 6-8 behavioral questions followed by some casual chatting. It lasted about an hour. They told me they would be getting in touch with me soon on their decision.

    Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Duke Energy in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the company at an internship fair at the university, they were eager to know what I know about electrical engineering and what I do at school. I received a call within 4 hours of meeting them to interview with them, 24 hours after I had met them. The interview was excellent, they were friendly and I felt as if I was conversing with colleagues rather than being tested for a position.

    Talent Acquisition Coordinator Interview

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

    I was first brought in for a 1:1 interview with the manager that I would be reporting to. She was extremely friendly and welcoming. I then had a phone interview with someone who had just moved up from the position that I was interviewing for to a Recruiter position. She was also very friendly but asked pretty much the same questions as I was asked in the first interview so it seemed kind of repetitive and pointless.
