Engineer I Interview

Engineer I
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Duke Energy.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – What value do you bring to the position that other candidates do not?   Answer Question

Finance Intern Interview

Finance Intern
Cincinnati, OH

The process took a day - interviewed at Duke Energy in April 2009.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No

Customer Project Apprentice Interview

Customer Project Apprentice
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Duke Energy in September 2009.

Interview Details – 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.
