- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hawaiian Electric Company (Honolulu, HI) in January 2015.
The questions are not ad lib, they all came from prepared documents from HR including all of the standard disclaimers and the necessities that ensures that they are in full compliance with various labor regulations. Very few questions deviated from the script, and no technical questions were posed for this entry level engineering position. All the qualifications need to be included within the resume, otherwise, the posed interview questions will not help to reveal or extract that information during the interview, even if you wanted to say so. The standard review period post-interview is usually 2 weeks, but it took almost 2 months for my results to be conveyed via email, after I had sent a request to the HR department asking about the status of the applied position.

Initially was invited via email. The interview consisted of an HR rep and the Accounting Manager. The questions seemed cordial and easy at first, then became progressively challenging and borderline intrusive. I believe this was a test to see how one responded under controversy and/or pressure. They were definitely looking for a specific type to fit their mold.

Reasons for Declining
It would have required a relocation, and not worth the salary. Old, dated offices and equipment. Felt like I was going back in time about 20 years.
