IT Manager Interview

IT Manager
Newark, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at PSEG.

Interview Details – The interview process was a three part process an initial phone interview by the hiring manager, a 2nd panel interview with several people including someone from HR, and a 3rd interview with the hiring manager and the CIO. This process was probably an 8-10 week process from the original submission of a resume.

Give yourself some extra time for the onsite interviews. They go through a security screening process similar to what is done at the airports but a lot slower...

Interview Question – Standard Behavioral interview questions as previous reviewers mentioned.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Engineer Interview

Engineer
Salem, NJ

The process took 1 week - interviewed at PSEG in January 2011.

Interview Details – Applied for test engineer position. Received call one week later to interview with two senior engineers. Their interviews follow STAR (Situation, Task, Actions, Results) format. Every interviewer asks same questions (i.e describe how you handled a difficult project, were you successful, what was the end result?, describe a time where you promoted safety? what actions did you take? what was the end result?) The employers emphasize this interview strategy and you must answer by telling a story

Engineering Internship Interview

Engineering Internship
Salem, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PSEG in April 2009.

Interview Details – I applied online early in 2009, around February and received an email about 2 months later asking to fill out a bunch of forms. They asked general questions such as, past jobs/internships, GPA, and experiences in class. It was a bit more frustrating than other copies on account of the fact I had to sign and fill out various forms.

Interview Question – Discuss a problem you had on a past project, and how you went about solving it?   Answer Question

Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at PSEG in September 2009.

Interview Details – Interview was very impersonal. Panel had specific questions that they read from a list. There was no introduction other than name and postion. Questions were all situational based and if you did not have experience with that specific situation you could not answer the question. I drove 5 hours spent the night in a hotel on my dime to have a 45 minute interview.

Interview Question – How did you handle discipline for an employee that violated a safety policy?   Answer Question
