    Interview Details

    Two people from APS asked me questions and graded them on a prepared document they both used. They hired me through a staffing company so they could work me overtime without additional $ and not get in trouble.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult. What was unexpected was to find out the reason they hired me as a contractor was because no employees would work the hours needed to meet the deadline that APS management wanted.   Answer Question

    Legacy Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wintersburg, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wintersburg, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Arizona Public Service Company in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a college career fair and was recommended to the hiring manager. A few months later I received an email asking for an interview. I was asked to drive down to the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station to do the interview. The interview included a panel interview with the hiring managers, then an interview with the department supervising engineer, then a follow up with another guy who had gone through the program. They had me pretty convinced that I had a shot.

    So, a week later I called in and found that they had hired internally. Essentially, I was there for show. APS never intended to hire me. They simply needed someone to interview so that when they hired their internal guy, they could say that it was from a fair pool.

    Making me drive to the middle of the desert, prepare a presentation, and sit through hours of interviews, just to tell me that it was a waste... unethical, to say the least. Expenses were not paid.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Arizona Public Service Company in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was held in front of a group of managers. They asked many questions. I felt that the questions were not relevant to the job at all. They were asking abstract questions. No questions related to safety or my experience. I felt that they really didn't get to know me at all. Its too bad, but I could tell that the man in charge of safety there was new himself, and was trying too hard to make the interview different.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Arizona Public Service Company.

    Interview Details

    After 2 weeks, there were phone interviews. Then, APS invited me for an in-person interview. At this point, a panel of supervisors will interview me, and a presentation on my part was needed. They will use the STAR format for interviewing. The panel will keep asking about situations in your college life, and they wanted detailed information on specific actions.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult if you study up on STAR format. It would be difficult if you lack experience, projects, or group activities. For example, they asked to explain situation in which I performed an analysis and made a recommendation.   Answer Question
