    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Energy Future Holdings in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview with director consisted of briefing of duties. 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.

    Interview Details

    I met with some recruiters at a career fair, but they told me to just apply online. My background was mechanical engineering, so I applied for the engineering intern position by uploading my information and resume. I got a call from the college relations department and had an interview that was about 45 mins. These were basic questions, some behavioral, some interest level - the usual. I heard back in less than two weeks with a good offer and accepted.

    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Energy Future Holdings in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
