    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Progress Energy in September 2009.

    Interview

    This was just an ordinary interview, where 2 employees alternate in asking you questions about your work abilities. They are looking for a well rounded person who is hard working and has good social skills. The employees are very friendly and not at all aggressive, so just be calm and truthful. P.S. I was offered the job and it was a fantastic place to work!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Progress Energy in December 2007.

    Interview

    I had multiple interviews. 1:1 on campus and then I was called for in -person interview. 4 people interviewed me for half an hour each. They were basically trying to learn about my past experience and how well I will be able to fit in the company. We discussed my resume and even though I felt that I was repeating myself (because of 4 different people asking me similar questions), it was still good and a pleasant experience!
