Software Engineer IV Interview

Software Engineer IV
Lynchburg, VA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at AREVA in August 2011.

Interview Details – Interview process was actually quite pleasant. I was expecting a more challenging interview process with the usual irrelevant interview questions. Management seemed to know what type of engineer they needed and filtered candidates appropriately. The biggest challenge is reaching Lynchburg. Flight cancellations to/from Lynchburg are quite frequent. Be prepared for the unexpected when planning travel.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Corporate policies limit negotiations. Expect salaries you'll find posted on this site. Moving expenses were covered as well as paid trip to find housing.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at AREVA.

Interview Details – This was an interview for an internal transfer but the process is similar for people coming from outside of the company.

First, I used my network to get my resume past the HR job application system. Your resume can get weeded out by the HR system if you don't select the right options. After several phone calls, I did get invited in for an interview.

My interview was a panel style interview with six people at one time. Areva uses a behavioral interview process and the people at the table would each ask a question from a set of questions provided by HR. It was a bit amusing because they kept going around the table asking one question at a time reading off of a piece of paper.

I had to call a couple times after the interview to inquire if a decision had been made. It was nearly two months before I received their decision.

Interview Question – Tell me about a project where you had a difficult time with the customer and how you handled it.   View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AREVA.
