- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.
I initially applied through my university and had a phone interview within a week. I was then invited to the office for a multiple round interview. I met with four different employees that each had a completely different role. Relatively easy interview. I got zero feedback following the interview which was very agitating.

I applied online. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.
I applied for the job through indeed and heard back within a week from the recruiter to set up an interview. I was interviewed by 3 different people. It was primarily a behavioral style interview. All of the interviewers were fairly professional although none of them seemed very happy at all about their jobs. They even mentioned specific things that frustrated them about what they were and weren't allowed to do in their roles. They even asked me how I felt about the be restricted to providing certain types of guidance in the open audit role. I knew during the interview that I was not interested in the job because of what seemed to be serious cultural problems in the group. I did not hear back after the interview.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in September 2012.
I went through two interviews (one via phone, one in person). The phone interview was straight forward. Within a week, I was offered an in person invite. This was one of the most rigid interviews I've been to - the questions were all 4 or 5 sentences long with various parts. It was tough to answer completely and thoroughly. On more than one question, we had to skip it and move on to the next. I suggest listening very clearly and if possible, take notes on the keywords within the questions - it will help you greatly. The great part was that my interviewers were very nice about the complexity of the interview questions and the entire process. They were also very informative about why I didn't get the job (came in second place) and what I could change about my interviewee style. I enjoyed this interview for its overall value.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a year or more. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in May 2010.
I applied for an open position in Communications at ComEd in Chicago. For the last two years (yes, 730 days!), I have seen positions become available and consequently, I have continued to apply. I landed three interviews and completed a writing test. I have never received a rejection letter and continue to try to become employed there. I just learned that another position was filled by internal candidates. Here's the advice I have for other interview candidates: don't waste your time. ComEd will string you along telling you first that they have a hiring freeze and then they end up hiring someone on the inside.
