    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NiSource in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received a call for a phone screening less than a week after applying. Conducted phone screening and was invited for an interview. Interviewed with the recruiter and team manager using the STAR method. I received the questions before the interview so I was well prepared. I was asked 3 or 4 additional personality questions by the manager that the recruiter didn't have. I thought that was a good sign. They were trying to discover if I would be a good fit for the team.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at NiSource.

    Interview Details

    I visited the company booth at college career fair, submitted my resume to an employee working at the accounting department, and also applied on the company website and the college career website. Then I was accepted for an interview, and two Nisource employees interviewed me. one is the college recruiter and the other is the one i handed my resume to. the interview itself was really easy, then first explained what accounting functions i may be working with during the internship and asked me which one or two I may be interested in. then they just confirmed details on my resume, ask my group work or student orgs experiences.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at NiSource in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have nicknamed them NoSource. Had a phone screen with HR. Basic questions, but was also asked what questions I had about the company. Heard back next day and was offered an on-site interview. It was a group interview with hiring manager, senior manager, and HR contact. Questions were pretty basic and followed STAR format. Then had interview with director and HR contact stayed. After interview, followed up with HR contact several times to check on status. Was given very vague responses, but was never told I was no longer in consideration. Notified them I had another offer on the table and got dead air...

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at NiSource in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    HR was courteous enough to convince the hiring manager to give me an interview outside of his interview schedule as I was going to be in town that same week. Panel was very cordial and interview was structured, beginning with behavioral questions then technical questions pertaining to the position being interviewed for.

    Customer Programs Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at NiSource in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the position in December 2010. It was with Columbia Gas, Gas Distribution Operations. I was contacted in mid February to come in for an interview after a brief phone interview with a HR representative. I was given a time, date and location and map for parking but no names or titles of whom I would meet with. When I arrived the receptionist knew who I was and made me feel very welcome when giving me my visitor pass. She told me there was an onsite gym that employees can join for $5 a month. She told me where the ladies room was and where to sit when I would wait for the HR contact to get me in a few minutes. That was very nice.

    About fifteen minutes later, the HR contact came down in jeans as it was Friday. Everyone else was very business-oriented and dressed professionally. I was taken into a conference room where three people were waiting, a HR person, an IT person and the Director of Customer Programs, who would be the boss. They were all very nice and very formal. The HR person led the interview explaining this would be a "STAR" series of questions and answers and then other questions and then I could ask questions. It would be behavioral question format. The questions were intense and very focused. This was a new position and they were looking for specific things. The job description itself was four pages long.

    They all seemed pleased for the most part with my answers. It was very corporate and structured. They said they wanted change brought in but you have to wonder. Oftentimes the person leading it is killed.

    It definitely would be a great job but I am not sure it is a fit. They are interviewing and said they most likely would not start the person til April 1. Who can wait that long to start a job in this economy. They said they would let me know.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at NiSource in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The company used a placement firm and took several rounds with the outside recruiter. When I finally was to meet with the hiring employee they were late for the interview (and did not apologize). It was obvious from the start that they were not interested in me and likely had already decided on who they would hire before they got there.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were all rather shallow. The only difficult question was how a background in technology was relevant to the gas industry.   Answer Question
