Interviewed at AREVA
Interview Details – 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.
Negotiation Details – None
I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at AREVA in April 2012.
Interview Details – Was terrible took too long, from point of applying to being hired was too long. This process needs to be made more lean and better for future applicants to even have a chance.

Reason for Declining – Got better offer from other place
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at AREVA.
Interview Details – Was contacted by a nice, pleasant lady for a phone interview. At the conclusion of the call I was told I would receive a follow-up call the next week to schedule another follow-up interview with the hiring manager. She also provided me her direct phone number and encouraged me to call with any questions in the meantime. I did have another question in the interim (where I could address a thank you card) so I called the number I was provided, left a message stating the reason for my call, but did not receive a return call. I also did not receive the follow-up call promised for the following week to set up the follow-up interview; so I called and left a message to ask if there was some misunderstanding and to determine if I was still a candidate; I received no return call/message. I left a message once a week for the following two weeks after that requesting a call back to follow-up but not once received a response. I am very used to not getting calls back from recruiters and interviewers as they work through their process and deliberate on the merits of candidates. I also understand if they felt that I was not the best cadidate for the job after those deliberations; that's a reality of the world. However, it was unprofessional to receive no reply what-so-ever after I was  definitively told that I would receive a follow-up call the next week for a follow-up interview, and pointedly encouraged to call with any follow-up questions and provided a direct number to do so.
Interview Question – What are your salary expectations? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at AREVA in July 2011.
Interview Details – Applied online... 3 weeks later I was contacted by HR. I set up my initial phone interview which lasted 20 min. They asked the normal questions regarding your resume: work history, degrees received, etc. They told me that someone from engineering would contact me if my skills aligned with their needs. 1 week later I had my 2nd interview with the hiring director... we spent about 2 hours on the phone. Casual conversation... At the end of the conversation, I was invited out to meet the team. 2 weeks later I flew out. Areva covered all expenses (air, hotel, meals, rental car)... everything was first class. I had a panel interview first... and then during the course of the day I had a number of 1:1 interviews with people from the panel as well as upper management. Day 2 was more of the same. Would have loved to work there... but I think they hired someone who was local over me. The job description did say that relocation was not covered... I never touched on that assuming that if an offer was made that this may be negotiable. After the onsite interview, HR never followed up with me... 4 weeks after the onsite, I had to contact the hiring director to gain some closure to the process. The position had been filled.
