Senior Safety Professional Interview

Senior Safety Professional

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Exelon Generation.

Interview Details – Very standard selection process. Phone screening with a recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager. The in- person interview was a few hours; one on one with hiring manager, panel interview with a mix of to-be peers, other managers and staff, followed by a facility tour. Follow up with recruiter as needed.

Interview Question – Very standard behavior based assessment questions. No surprises, but expect to answer a handful of these. Remember the basics; Situation, Task, Action, Result.   Answer Question

Engineer Interview

Engineer

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Exelon Generation.

Interview Details – I applied online, contacted by HR 2 weeks later. HR asked questions about experience noted in my resume. I had a face-to-face interview 2 weeks later. The interview process was professional, conducted by 3 Exelon staff including the hiring manager. All behavioral questions about team work, facing a work challenge, very typical STAR questions. You have to be prepared with some work stories

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had to complete a difficult assignment, what made it specially challenging, how did you approach it and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Radiation Protection Technician Interview

Radiation Protection Technician
Morris, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Exelon Generation in April 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online through there website. They called quite a few people from the same program I attend. They were very inconsistent though and keep pushing back the hiring date. On the other hand, they are trying to request more RP techs from HR so hopefully they will have some more openings soon.

Interview Question – Always a tricky question when they ask why I am the best candidate for this position. Just have to answer with confidence.   Answer Question

IT Analyst - New Graduates Interview

IT Analyst - New Graduates
Baltimore, MD

I applied online - interviewed at Exelon Generation in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online on October 2013, then I received an email to set up a phone interview for the screening process. The screening process took like 30 minutes, the HR person made a few questions about what are your interest, your strong skills and why you want to work for them. Then she invited me to participate in an interview event on two weeks. The interview event took a few hours. First you have to participate in an orientation about the company, then they assign you two interviewers. The interview questions are behavioral questions. You have to answer them using STAR technique.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you were faced with a decision that you did not agree with and how you approached the situation.
If you have to choose to be an animal, which would you choose and why?

Senior Reactor Operator Interview

Senior Reactor Operator

Interviewed at Exelon Generation

Interview Details – Exelon utilizes the standard "STAR" format for interviews - explain a Situation or Task, describe the Action you took, and describe the Results. None of the questions were truly unexpected - what you'd expect: questions about a time when you built a team, when you failed to meet a customer's expectations, or tell me about a time when you had to compromise instead of implementing your idea or method. If you have several stories prepared that can be generalized to different questions you should be fine. Also, it helps to throw in a story when things didn't go as well as they could have - this demonstrates your awareness of fallibility, your willingness to learn, and can show that you respond to the negative events in your career to make the best of them.

Interview Question – None of the questions were unexpected. By and large, the interview has the feel that it's a formality - they already know whether or not they want to hire you, or the hiring manager will walk you out to your car at the end of the interview (when the real interview begins).   Answer Question
