    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Syracuse, NY
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard from a manager out of the blue. The initial phone interview was good. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with the manager and looked forward to meeting the team in person and seeing what I could do to help their team out.

    I arrive to the early interview, excited to get started with meeting the team.

    The interview went nothing like I expected, and I've done quite a few interviews.

    I was bombarded with negativity and aggressiveness from the get-go. I spent the next 30 minutes trying to calm the interviewer down and succeeded.

    My next interview was with the nice manager who already conducted the phone interview; a pleasant second interview ensued. Then the department manager showed up, 10 minutes late, and blasted me with ridiculous questions that made no sense for what I was interviewing for and pretty much yelled at me for the next 45 minutes. PRO TIP: Don't bring up the Exelon acquisition with any head managers. They will get offended.

    All in all, I had a good cop/ bad cop interview session for over 5 hours with 10 different people for a simple analyst position.

    I walked out of there praying I wouldn't be contacted by their department again, which I wasn't.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Constellation Energy Group in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call from Constellation Energy on an evening asking whether I was available for an onsite interview the next morning. I really needed more time, so I asked if it could be postponed to a later date and that this was too sudden. The HR said she can move it to a date couple of working days later, and they are not going to interview for many days for this position - I had no choice to accept to get interviewed the next day with one night to prepare.
    The day started early, and I went through five rounds of interviews. Only the second was heavily technical and the rest of the rounds were full of questions from my resume.
