    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spokane, WA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Avista Utilities in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with the contract company, phone interview with Avista, and then in person interview with Avista.
    I was impressed with Avista personnel. They were friendly and knowledgeable. They put me at my ease and, therefore, received a true picture of me as an employee and my technical skill set. I felt like my skill set was respected and I was respected as a professional.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were technical about the subject matter of the position. The interviewers knew a lot about the position they were filling and the questions were technical and targeted to receive examples of work I have done in the past.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They needed me to relocate immediately and I needed about a week more time. It felt like a communication issue with the contract company. I wish I had accepted the job.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lewiston, ID
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Avista Utilities in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview questions were normal. I had prepared before the interview of potential questions & thought to myself how I would answer. This helped me prepare. The mock phone call took me off guard, but I calmed the (fake) customer down to resolve the situation. I was comfortable talking to the manager of the office though it is always intimidating having interviews. *Remember - shake hands*
