Very Easy Interview

Equipment Operator Interview

Equipment Operator
Ontario, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in December 2012.

Interview Details – The company flew me out and put me in a hotel but my flight was cancelled due to weather. I showed up the next day when my new flight got in and was greeted with disgust by the interviewers for being late even though it was not my fault. The interviewers were very rude and I would never work for this company. The HR representative was very sickly and appeared to have a facial disease. The lead operations interviewer was very overweight and clearly unhealthy and was a very disgruntled employee.

Interview Question – The questions were very basic. I explained my experience and why I wanted the job.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The interviewers insulted me for being overeducated for the position and were incredibly rude because my flights were delayed because of weather.

Director Interview

Director

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group.

Interview Details – The process seemed more challenging than it might have been because it involved people from parent-company in Chicago as well as Baltimore. Phone interview with recruiter followed by face-to-face with hiring manager and key business partner/peer, then third round with multiple senior leaders. It started off very urgent, then seemed to drag. 'Agenda' for all-day interviews with multiple people didn't include job titles or address/parking details (which were the same as the first face-to-face, but still), and interview date was only in subject of email, not body. Initially there was no one to host me for lunch or information/recommendations about what to do for lunch. It seems silly, but how well one is taken care of during recruitment can be interpreted as a reflection of how one will be attended to/thought of when an employee, so those little details matter. Schedule changes came the day before and the day of, when new people were slipped into the line up/times changed. All-in-all, I think the recruitment process reflected the challenges the company still faces in balancing the merger integration demands. A lot of nice people trying hard, and...things are hectic so details fall through the cracks. That said, I'm still sad I won't get to be there to help.

Applications Developer Interview

Applications Developer

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in August 2009.

Interview Details – I applied for the position online. I was contacted by the manager of the group I would ultimately be working for. Phone screening was done and then ultimately an interview by a group of people. Standard interview questions, usually done by multiple team members.

It is now more common for either HR or a recruiting company to make contact and do initial screening.

Interview Question – Name one situation where you were compelled to do the right thing when it wasn't really the easy thing to do.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was fairly painless. I countered the initial offer, they countered and I accepted.
