    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Alabama Power (Birmingham, AL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted someone who works here, and they got me a "get to know" meeting that ended up feeling like a technical interview. However, it was very relaxed and casual. The only thing is that I didn't hear anything from them, again, until a month later when I received an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Alabama Power (Birmingham, AL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call to come for an interview. The interview was rather intimidating because they had a panel of 5 men that interviewed me at once. They asked a series of situational questions that I had no idea of. And i really felt like they didnt give me a chance. I received an email about 2 months later saying they went with other candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Alabama Power in May 2010.

    Interview

    Alabama Power is a greatplace to work but their HR is very very slow. The hole process took about 6 months canidate selection to hire date was recieved. First was a written test not to bad. Second was a skills test. Then the interview it was a little difficult but had some of the regular interview question. Some questions are as I call them "trick questions" which really have no correct answer you just have to figure out what they are looking for.
