    Regional Environmental Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AEP.

    Interview Details

    The interview was about 2 hours. I met with the person I would be replacing and the sector head for the first hour, then spent about 45 minutes with the person I would be replacing on a tour of the office and for a chance to ask any questions. The questions were pretty basic. They wanted to know about what I had experience with, and if I would fit the company culture (mainly if safety was a priority in my life/work). I did not get any "test" questions about regulations or procedures. They cared more about my personality and work ethic as a "self starter" than they did about the hard knowledge, as they said they plan to teach me anything I do not already know. That was really nice and made for a relaxed interview where I felt like I could be myself.

    Meter Reader/Manpower Interview

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

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at AEP in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was simple, and I had the job but lost it due to a felony 6yrs ago. (AEP requires none in 7yrs.) The position was not easy to find at all, got a lead thru a friend that Manpower was contracting meter readers as AEP will be phasing them out over the next 3years with smart meters.

    I called manpower, already had an account set up on their site. They set me for testing a week later. At the interview of 10, I was one of 2 that dressed for it. It was more testing than interview, no direct questions. The testing had nothing to do with reading the dial of a meter* There were two timed tests; table tests where you read a sentence and mark the circles to the qualifying groups.
    * So studying will do you NO GOOD. Be well rested. It is time -vs- accuracy, and AEP prioritizes accuracy over speed. No one can finish the test in time, it is designed that way. Both tests were about 5 minutes.

    Whole day took 2hrs. Was very easy... sad I didn't get the job as it was awesome!

    Good Luck!
