    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Colorado Springs Utilities (Colorado Springs, CO) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I was not asked to be interviewed. However, they administered an eSkill test to sort through the candidates. This test was 90 minutes long and had 66 questions covering the topics of: Cost Accounting, Budgeting and Fiscal Planning. The questions had 2-3 sentences to read and they were multiple choice. Understand cost accounting basics, reading financial statements, allocating labor hours, variance analysis, debits and credits to the financial statements, inventory (LIFO, FIFO) and accrual accounting methods. From what I remember, financial models were not covered. You cannot use a calculator or any resources. If you do not have a background in accounting, this test will be difficult for you complete within the allocated time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Colorado Springs Utilities in July 2011.

    Interview

    I met with the manager and a couple of people from his team. The manager and the team were really nice. They asked basic questions, "Tell us about yourself" type questions. Then they had a sheet of technical questions, which they took turns asking. I think they had some kind of a rubric they had to fill out as they went. The questions were pretty standard computer security questions. I tried to prepare for the interview, but wasn't sure what to study, so I didn't do very well, but I think if I had spent a few hours doing Security+ and CISSP sample exams, I would have done a lot better. I'm rating it as difficult, but that's just because I have a hard time with technical interviews. Overall, I thought it was a positive exeperience. The people were nice, the questions they asked were reasonable considering the position, and they never made me feel uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember any specific questions, but there were some about firewall rules, subnetting, how you would troubleshoot a connectivity issue, etc...   Answer Question
