    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MISO.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an application, was contacted by recruiters within a couple of weeks with two interview day options. \

    Was given very short notice to accept interview opportunity.

    Interview was in open conference room with cohorts of mid-level functional managers and senior employees

    4 rounds of interviews with basic behavioral questions and some technical questions.

    Each interview was 30-40 minutes long.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at MISO.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers were extremely pleasant and informative about the position and the company. They asked mostly typical, behavioral questions. One nice thing was that they actually provided feedback when they thought an answer was a good one. Interesting, as most interviewers will put on their poker face and not let anything slip out about how they think you're doing. Have not received an offer or ding yet.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at MISO in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had an interview with the representatives from different departments. Many of them require coding abilities including SQL, C++, JAVA. However, programming is not required for many positions including engineering. Prior to hire, there was a background checking and drug test. Very good amenities to the interns (Provide with free housing)

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MISO in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through online portal for internship program. Accepted to do one-day on-site interview. The one day consisted of orientation and information about MISO and their operations and tours for the first half and interviewing for the second half. We went around to 3 or 4 different teams within MISO to talk with them about what they do and for them to ask us questions. The teams asked about some of my experience and whether some of their projects sounded interesting. They asked how my experience could help them on those projects.

    Ftr Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carmel, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MISO in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was an internal interview. I was told I was one of the top candidates but could not get an offer due to a hiring freeze that had happened immediately after I interviewed.

    STAR interview techniques (situation, task, action, and response) on areas of technical experience, managing risk, and behaviors (like conflict). Knowing where the job fit within the company helped.

    They have a standardized format of questions to ask in categories. They like to see answers to all questions. Be prepared with examples of your prior work experience to aid in the STAR technique.
