Instrument & Control Technician Interview

Instrument & Control Technician
Lusby, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in November 2011.

Interview Details – Got a call from a recruiter. The interview was set up for a week later. I had to take the EEI Tech test (easy), They grade it immediately and if you pass you get an interview. Then I had an interview with 2 people (technical questions asked during interview were easy), they were very friendly but the male interviewer stares at you. After the test and interview had a sit down with an HR rep. I got an offer within a week. I still have to do drug test, psych eval, and background screening.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in June 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online. HR lady emailed me 2 days later. Had a brief preliminary interview with her and was succesful for next round of phone interviews. The "Director" I interviewed three days later seemed disinterested in the phone interview, like it was a chore to do it. I honestly wish once you are successful with the preliminary interview with HR, you should be invited to a personal 1 on 1 or group interview.

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Louisville, KY

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in June 2010.

Interview Details – Applied online, the recruiter called me within a week for a brief interview. She wanted to know basic job skills and salary requirements. I refused to talk salary with her but she demanded that it was company policy. During the interview at the actual office there were two people who interviewed me. One did all the talking the other lady sat there with her arms crossed and literally asked nothing. I have not heard back from them so no call, email, letter, or nothing. Constellation takes a strong stance against letting candidates know their status at any time. Very poor interviewers just based on the lack of respect they showed.

Supply Chain Interview

Supply Chain
Baltimore, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in December 2009.

Interview Details – Fairly straightforward - was contacted by a recruiter around for the position. He vetted me, and passed me along to the hiring manager. 1:1 interview with him, then called back for another round of interviews with the team.

Interviews were by the book, though there was definitely a script in play. Nice folks, though definitely a bit old-school in their expectations. Also very focused on cultural fit, which isn't a bad thing.

Interview Question – Tell us how you built a complex TCO model to reflect the true cost of capital good.   View Answer

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

Interview Details – the phone interview is easy, you will then be given an assessment test . Once you have completed the assessment test and passed. You will then be given a interview date with HR at this time u will be given another assessment test . Once you have passed this assessment you will be given a date to go to one of BGE Headquarters with around maybe 60 more applicants. You will be shown a movie introduced to employees of BGE then you all will get interviewed by a panel of 2 HR employees . The kicker after you have done all of these tricks is to take a phone test . You will be put in front of a screen with information to put into the computer and speak to a customer at the same time . Make sure you read the script word for word no errors .

Engineering Interview

Engineering
Syracuse, NY

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Constellation Energy Group in October 2009.

Interview Details – This was a very swift interview process.

1. I was first contacted 3 days after posting my resume. The phone interview took about 5 minutes. HR asked, (1) Are you willing to relocate? (2) What is your expected salary? (3) What do you expect from the company

2. I was invited for an on-site interview a week after

3. During the on-site interview, I met all the engineers and supervisors. Then did the official "behavioral" interview. Then had lunch. The interview overall was very layed back, although it lasted about 6-7 hours.

4. I was contacted 4 days after. This took about 5 minutes as well. The HR just talked about how much the salary is, and what the benefits were.

Interview Question – They asked a series of standard behavioral questions I don't remember... things like leadership, teamwork, technical experiences.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate because the compensation seemed very competitive.
