    Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Alliant Energy in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Alliant uses behavior interviewing mixed with 3 job related and 3 questions related to your experience and qualifications. 4 people interviewed me: 3 directors and 1 HR.

    Right away they asked me to verbalize my qualifications for the position without presenting my resume. Luckily for me I had a qualifications summary already printed out.

    The behavioral questions were very typical. What would you do type questions.

    The job related questions asked me how I would handle team issues and internal customer relationships

    The qualification questions asked me to describe my past achievements as they would related to this position.

    The interviewers were very nice to me and the meeting room was comfortable. I choked up once and one of the interviewers offed me his unopened water.

    The clothing attire was professional casual and the office is only about 5 years old so it is in very nice condition. The cafe was clean and offered several choices for breakfast and lunch.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Alliant Energy in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    As with all interviews at this employer, it was a behavioral interview. Questions were asked based on the Company's behavioral interview criteria, and key points based on the job being posted. For example, if one of the key points was Time Management, an example question might be: "Talk about a time when you had a deadline coming up, but were given a last minute task that was higher-priority. How did you deal with the situation, and what was the outcome?" At this point, the person being interviewed should come up with a specific example, and one that will "WOW" the interviewer(s).
