    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Duke Energy (Saint Petersburg, FL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Typical interview with questions about my skills and experience. They wanted to know what duties I performed at my prior jobs and the reasons why I left those jobs. I told them that I relocated due to my husbands job and that I was now looking for employment. Otherwise it was a positive experience and I would have liked to have received an offer but apparently there was a more qualified candidate.
