    Interview Details

    Talked to Consumers during university recruiting last fall and did not receive in interview. After networking with the company at several events and the career gallery in the Spring I got an interview. The people were very friendly and are very people oriented. There were two people interviewing and it took about a month after my interview to get an offer from the company so do not get discouraged too quickly if you don't hear back right away!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Consumers Energy.

    Interview Details

    Worked as a contractor prior to being interviewed for position. Was referred for an open position by a current employee. Interview seemed very straightforward. Panel was willing to let you speak your mind as a current contractor on the pros/cons of being a contractor within the company. And took into consideration the time as a contractor as being a 'regular' employee.... which is very unusual.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Consumers Energy in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through LinkedIn at the end of May. I was contacted within a week to take 3 different online assessments over the next month . A personality test an IQ and math test and a customer service simulation with a typing test, where you would help customers make appointments and data entry. I was then emailed that I passed and needed to come in to take more assessments. There was 20 or so other people also their to take the test. The test was the same type of questions as the IQ test (logic, which word doesn't fit with rest, math, etc.) But more questions and more time. After the test was over, everyone but four people including myself was told to step out I'm the hallway. He closed the door and informed the 4 of us that we had passed. We set up a time to be called within the next two days for our phone interview. The phone interview explained the position and informed me that the drug test was urine and hair. The questionsecond were similar to name a time when you had to deal with a difficult co-worker. I received an email I passed and needed to come in for the panel interview within a week and half. 3 people took turn asking questions and writing down your answers. I was offered the position the following week contingent upon background and drug test.
