    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Direct Energy (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Started with recruiter then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. We had the call during off hours which was great and thanks!!

    Interview questions seemed pretty standard and he asked technical processes about my current role. I wasn't sure about the company at first but he did a good job of getting me interested in the company after. I didn't like how he kept referring to the department as his people. Not sure how healthy it really is when he talks like that.

    He decided to go with other candidates that have specific experience he is looking for.
