    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ameren (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    HR screening via phone. Appeared to go well, basic review of resume and how it ties into the position being open. I was told that my response would be forwarded to the hiring manager and would hear back from the HR person by a specific day regarding next steps. I did not hear back from the hiring manager and she did not return my calls.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ameren (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Received a telephone call from HR, asking to set up a telephone screening. The telephone interview was straightforward and the representative just asked general questions about my resume. It generally seemed to be test to make sure you could elaborate on what you put on your resume and to make sure you were well-spoken and such. Got a call a few days later and they wanted to set up an in-person meeting at headquarters. Ameren uses behavioral interviewing during the in-person interview, where you have to respond to questions using the "SHARE" model (describing the situation, the hindrance, the action you took, the result, and how you would evaluate yourself). There were maybe 8 questions or so and the interview took about 45 minutes. There were two hiring managers in the room, as well as an HR representative, and they took turns asking questions. There wasn't much discussion or general chatter otherwise, but it seemed as if they were following a strict process. The questions were only difficult because you have to respond using the "SHARE" model, which makes responses lengthy and generally unnatural. They didn't ask any questions about my real estate experience, or previous work experience--only the behavioral-type questions (i.e., "describe a time when...").

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Describe a time that you had to make a decision that wasn't popular. Q: Describe how you manage a heavy workload.   Answer Question
