    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.
