    Software Engineer IV Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    2 Basic Interviews. 1 phone followed by an onsite. Onsite asked me very easy technical questions. It really wasn't bad at all. A few matlab questions and quite a few questions about what Areva does as well as what projects I would like to work on.
