    Risk Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Energy Future Holdings.

    Interview

    I heard back an hour after I submitted my online application. The interview process was very disorganized. It took them thirty minutes past the official appointment to send someone down to get me. Two repetitive interviews, an outrageously expensive lunch, a written reasoning test, and a very hard Excel test took five hours, and then I was given an exit tour. They called me the next day with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the typical what do you know about us, why do you want to work here, how well do you play with others, and what makes you stand out questions. No curveballs, just be sure you know a lot about some aspect of the company.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Energy Future Holdings (Dallas, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I asked about their recent bankruptcy and the stability of the company. I also asked how long each of the interviewers worked for the company, finding that they were all mostly new. I don't think they were happy about my questions since it made them look weak. The in-person interview took 2 or 3 hours. All of the interviewers seemed in-experienced. They seemed confused and didn't seem to know very much about accounting. The interview started with a phone screening followed by an in-person interview with 4 people, including the hiring manager, controller, and 2 other managers.

    Interview Questions

    • All typical interview questions. How do you solve problems? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What can you bring to the table?   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Energy Future Holdings (Dallas, TX) in September 2014.

Secondary panel interview consisted of general questions regarding motivations, future plans, and then they challenged me to solve a real-world problem that had occurred during documentation. After this question, we talked about company culture, and I asked them what they wanted in an ideal candidate, how contractors were evaluated, and who I would be reporting to for my duties.

    Two weeks later I was given a job offer through my recruiter.

    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Energy Future Holdings (Irving, TX) in April 2010.

    Interview

    TXU has a reputation for being a revolving door for accountants and other business professionals. I ignored this knowledge and accepted an interview with a managing accountant there. Because of the revolving door attitude, I found out during the interview that everyone has some weird, non-standard title which gives the impression they are rising through the labyrinth of ranks at the company. The rest of the interview was downhill from there are the "managing" accountant was a dour-faced person with no sense of humor or likeability. If you are a business professional, stay away from this company. If you're interested in the energy industry, there are plenty of better local organizations to join in oil & natural gas.
