    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at EnerNOC.

    Interview Details

    I had interviewed for a position about a month earlier but didn't feel that it was the right fit for me. One of my interviewers then recommended me for this position a couple weeks later. I was contacted and set up a phone interview for a day later. The phone interview was basically a screening with questions about my background and interest in the company. We then set up an on site interview for 1 week later. It was 1.5 hours long, with 3 half-hour sessions. The questions were very straightforward:

    Describe a strength/weakness
    Why are you interested in this position?
    How do you tackle tough problems?
    What is your working style?
    How does this specific skill relate to this job?

    The interviewers were interested in learning about my background and figuring out if I was a good fit for the position & culture, not interrogating. Few to none technical questions. The entire time was very positive.

    Initial Communications: OK
    Phone Screen: we like you
    Panel Interview: we still like you
    Employment Sponsorship: not sure - we'll check
    Post-Interview Communications: NONE (very unprofessional)
    They could've reached out and informed at least via an email saying they cannot offer sponsorship. There was not a single communication transaction after the panel interview was complete.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EnerNOC in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received phone interview from initial recruiter that asks a number of general questions like "Why do you want to work for EnerNOC?" and "What do I know about EnerNOC?". Recruiter then setup another phone interview with the hiring manager. Hiring manager mainly asked the same questions. The initial recruiter then followed up with me and setup another 3 phone interviews and 1 in person interview. All mainly asked the same general questions as the first interview. After the 6th interview, no one followed.

    Senior Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at EnerNOC in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was reached out by a recruiter telling me that he got my resume from a headhunter. Got no information in respect to the job he had gotten in touch for in his initial introductory email (Red Flag). I followed up and tried to schedule a call the following day but I was told that he was out of office and he can only talk to me next week. (Really are you telling me that they only have one recruiter in the entire company). I still accepted the invitation for an initial screening and it went as scheduled. He asked me basic questions about what am I looking for and how this job fits my experience. After the phone call I got an email that they were willing to schedule another round and this time it would be with the hiring manager.
    Interview with the hiring manager started with usual initial introduction and followed by a detailed discussion on my past experience. Soon the interview inclined towards the drawback that they have in the company and how they are looking for a candidate who can draw requirements, write use cases, conduct testing, plan project and CODE. I countered and asked that they are trying to squeez 3 different job functions into one job profile. Obviously as a BA you are required to have both technical and functional hats and even act as QA and PM on a project but CODING really. On one hand they want someone to set the ground running but they also do not wish to spend money on having a structural team in place. This was another red flag that I felt that the hiring manager and the HR were not in sync with what they are really looking for.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at EnerNOC.

    Interview Details

    After the initial screening you'll (usually) have two in-person rounds. Each round will be meeting with 3-4 pairs of people. (With more senior people in the second round).

    After each round the people who interview you will get in a conference room (with a HR person to take notes) and give you a number from 1-10. 7s and above means "advance to next phase". Then everyone goes around and gives their thoughts (with the hiring manager/future boss going last). Finally it's a thumbs up/thumbs down thing and the hiring manager makes the call.

    There will also be a homework assignment to gauge your excel abilities. Here they are looking for attention to detail and being able to do things quickly (that's why they only give you 48 hours).

    Note EnerNOC has a HUGE population of interns vying for full time positions, so for pretty much any "Associate" level position there is gonna be a flood of them applying.
