    Engineer I Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    In person interview. 3 people conducted the interview. Some people might consider a panel interview intimidating so I would say prepare for that aspect. Some technical questions about thermodynamics, tolerances, equipment fatigue and working in a plant environment etc. Many were general questions like tell me about yourself etc. They are very focused on company fit with existing personell and asked may behavorial type of questions.

    Customer Project Apprentice Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Cincinnati, OH) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Required an aptitude test prior to being considered for interview. Interview was VERY non-traditional, using a panel interviewing technique called the "STAR" system (Situation Task Action Result). That system is a behavioral interview, NOT a traditional "tell me about yourself and your experience" interview.

    Interview Questions

    • We all know some customers are difficult to satisfy. Tell me about your last "problem" customer, what the problem was, and how it was resolved. What was the end result? Was the customer happy in the end?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about the last time at your previous position that you knew you SHOULD have done something to avoid a problem, but chose to do nothing. What was the result?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Interview for finance internship at Power station. 1 on 1 interview process which felt more like a meet & greet than an actual interview. Very informal. Pretty much just talking about the position. Met with supervisor, then sat and talked to several other interns who I later learned had a say in the hiring process.
