    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milford, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DTE Energy in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the summer co-op position online in January. Got a phone call in March asking me to schedule an interview at their Milford Compressor Station. Pretty basic interview. There were two managers who asked me about my research and then some behavioral questions which were to be responded to in STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Response) format. They said it would take a week to 10 days to hear back. I got a call in 2 days from HR saying that I had been chosen for the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DTE Energy in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very formal and impersonal interview - need to understand STAR format. I received an email to fill out a background document and then was invited to do an in person interview. I interviewed with three individuals. They asked a few background questions of me and then launched into the STAR format, scenario-based questions. Following the interview, I had to take a one hour writing test.

    Interview Details

    A career fair came to our university applied through there. Process took 2 weeks for interview date. After interview they called and said i was accepted. Interview was with 3 people but one of them wasn't able to make it. They try to make you nervous by writing on their papers after and through the process of answering them. Great Human resources representatives they make sure everything on your application is right to be able to proceed.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at DTE Energy in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The company usually hire from within, every year they have over 7 thru 15 applicants. They only take about 3 to 4. There is alot of favoritism there, but everyone has a chance, be unique. All the questions they ask you the star method questions. There is no technical questions. you are interview by 3 mangers from different field. They take a long process to decide. In my case it took 2 months.

    Safety/IH Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Very straight forward process using S.T.A.R behaviorial questions. They wanted to know what actions you took as an individual in certain situations regarding work related matters. As you are explaining your experience, the interviewers are writing down your response, there is little eye contact during this process.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at DTE Energy.

    Interview Details

    Used the S.T.A.R. interviewing system, which stands for situation or task action you took, and results you acheived. Interview was very systematic with the interviewer constantly taking notes and showing no inclination of whether your answer was acceptable most of the time.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time when you used technical knowledge to solve a problem.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was given an un-negotiable offer and accepted, as Co-Ops are payed based upon their current standing in college (Junior, Senior, etc) and the pay rate is non-negotiable.
