    Process Integration Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Duke Energy in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    An HR recruiter reached out to me via a canned email. I followed up with a yes I would like to proceed with an interview and was given a date and time to come in. I also had a few questions about the job in the response and those were completely ignored. The day I interviewed it was weird. First, I did not interview in the fancy new building but some dump behind it. I was greeted by the manager who took me into a room with no windows near the entrance. There was a second person in there as well. When the started the interview they ran through an extreemly weird and bizzare emergency drill notification prior to getting started. They then jumped into roughly 8 behavior interview quesitons that I found very difficult...it was the first time I had ever been hit with those type of question. I was left very little time at the end of the interview to tell them about who I was...I found this bizzare because I didn't even have a phone screen so all they were going off was my resume...Based on my experience I could tell most of the people who worked there were in their 50's so if you are younger you might not fit in. Following the interview I emailed the recruiter to pass along a thank you note to the interviewers and was for a second time ignored. I ended up pulling myself from consideration of the job after 3 weeks with a note that said if you feel like reaching out please do else I am not interested in waiting to hear from you.

    Compliance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Duke Energy in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Step 1:
    I received an automated request within a few days of the deadline for the posting to close. It said:
    "This letter is to say thank you for your interest in Duke Energy and determine your interest in scheduling an phone interview. Please respond to this email within 48 hours to confirm your interest and availability. Interview spaces are currently available during the following time(s): _____"

    Step 2:
    After a couple of emails back and forth with the HR rep, we finalized a phone interview and I received another automated confirmation for the interview with the name/title of the hiring manager who would interview me. (As it turned out, there was also another person sitting in on the interview as well.)

    Step 3:
    We had a 40-minute phone interview where the manager described the job a little more then went through a list of standard questions. At one point, she referred to the number of questions remaining on "the list they gave me" so I know she was working through a set of standardized questions. I was able to ask as many questions about the position as I wanted, also.

    Step 4: Within a week of the phone interview I received another automated email saying, "Thank you for taking the time to interview for the Compliance Analyst position. After careful consideration of the applicants for this particular position, the hiring manager has chosen to extend an offer to another more qualified applicant."

    Interview Questions
    • 1) Why are you interested in this position?
      2) Tell me about a time when you had access to confidential information and someone wanted it. What did you do?
      3) Tell me about a time when you failed at something and what did you do about it.

      There were many other standardized questions but if you review other interviews for this company they've already been listed.
