    Applied through NiSource website and was called for an interview several weeks later. The interviews are mostly behavioral using a STAR format (probably 80%).

    They did not pay attention to my request of a minimum salary in the application and was offered $10k lower that I had asked for. I requested a $5k higher offer, they came back with $2k higher than the original offer. It was my first professional job, so I accepted.
