Engineer I Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Baltimore Gas and Electric.

Director Level Management Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Baltimore Gas and Electric in June 2010.
Interview Details – A straightforward interview process. Combination of panel and one on ones. Each interviewer had a pre-prepared list of questions to ask. They were straightforward: strengths, give me an example of, difficult situations, successes, etc. You should do a little reseach on current happenings so you can incorporate that into the conversations, they seemed to like it when those were incorporated. The business casual atmosphere creates a laid back atmosphere. Senior level (VP) managers were in skirts or jackets/ties. The culture seemed a little confusing, a combination of conservative, regulated utility and a desire to be a progressive company.
Interview Question – How would you handle the environmental backlash against tree cutting? View Answer
Mobile Web Developer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Baltimore Gas and Electric in November 2012.
Interview Details – Initial communication was through a placement agency that BGE utilizes. This led to a phone interview with the hiring manager once he reviewed my resume. The next step was an in person interview with the hiring manager and another team member. The hiring manager was looking to make a decision in two days time. Several weeks passed and there was no feedback from the hiring manager at BGE or the placement agency, despite several email messages and phone messages. (I gave up after that point.)
Interview Question – The most challenging question was related to web services. I was asked a hypothetical question on how I would likely approach a programming problem. (I cannot recall the specifics.) The challenge was that it was a case where there were many ways to go about it, some better than others, but several options would have been appropriate. They were looking for specific things in the answer. Answer Question
