    Administrative Assistant III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    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.

    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. Happy to be offered the position

    Resource Planning Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Consumers Energy in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online at the Consumers Energy website in early November 2013. Two weeks later I was contacted and we scheduled a phone screening interview for later in that week.

    The phone interview was with two staff engineers and was about an hour long. A lot of the questions were behavioral (What would you do in this situation) or asking to give specific examples of past experience pertaining to responsibilities of the job. Immediately after we finished, I received an email inviting to come in for an in-person interview. I agreed and they scheduled me to come in 2.5 weeks later.

    The in-person interview was performed by four people (the two staff engineers, an HR rep and a director of a relevant department). The interview was 1.5 hours long and the questions were similar in nature to those asked over the phone.

    A month after the in-person interview, they emailed me and asked to have another brief phone interview. Again, I spoke with the two staff engineers and answered only a couple questions about why I wanted the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Other than Microsoft Excel, give an example of computer software that you have used in the past for analyzing data.   Answer Question

    Engineering Entry Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Consumers Energy in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    On-campus interview and on-site interview. On-campus was really basic 'screening' interview. It took a long time before I was called to an on-site interview.

    On-site was with one other candidate and was at the company headquarters. 2 different interviews (2 on 1). All the interviewers were engineers. No oddball, hard questions. It seemed like they were mostly concerned with the way you approach and solve problems as well as multitask. A lot of questions about how you approach situations or problems.

    The headquarters is in the middle of nowhere.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you determine what to do first in a given day?   Answer Question
    • You have 2 classes, how do you decide which one to study for first with exams coming up on both of them?   Answer Question

There were about 4 people in a conference that were apart of my interview. My interview was only about 10 minutes. There weren't any curveball questions. Always ask them questions!
