Engineer Co-Op Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Southern Company in November 2010.

Interview Details

Applied through on campus Co-op Interview Day. On campus interview was relatively superficial (not technical or about the position), don't really remember it.

Had a phone interview 2-3 days later with future manager and another co-worker. Mostly explained the type of work and asked if I had any experience with some tools they used.

The next week I had an onsite panel interview with the team I would be working for. These were pretty canned, common questions and they went around the table asking me one at a time.

I received a call from HR with the offer about an hour after the interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Southern Company in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was invited for on campus interview. Interviewer was nice and actually kept in contact with me after interview. Was asked simple interview questions, such as "Why should Southern Company hire you", "How have you handled difficult coworkers" etc. Ended up not meeting employment need (I was an ME and they needed EE's)
