I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc..
I was contacted by a recruiter on a few occasions. After submitting the information that they wanted. I was told my profile would be sent out for a background check. The background check process was very thorough as well. Once that portion was completed I took a drug and and psychological evaluation. The worst part of the entire process was the background check because of how thorough it was.

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (West Palm Beach, FL) in March 2015.
The Overall experience was great. I applied online and received an email about 3 weeks later to do a Hirevue Getting to know you interview. It was based on 7 questions (Nothing to difficult), 5 were Multiple choice and two video recordings. After I received a phone call with two recruiters and asked about 10 behavioral questions (this interview was smooth, they were very nice throughout the whole process, meaning they make me feel very comfortable). Next about 4 weeks later i got invited to an Open House at their Corporate headquarters, Its an all day thing so be prepared. They provide a tour of the facility and lots of neat stuff they are working on. There you get interviewed twice by 2 different persons each time throughout the day, questions were some behavioral and basic technical questions, they also ask about projects you have done so be prepared to talk a bit about those as well. After they got back to me with an offer 2 days later. I accepted. very fair salary and great company to work for with awesome weather throughout the year

I applied online – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. in February 2015.
After submitting my resume, I received a call from HR informing me they liked my resume and were pleased to offer me an interview. I was informed that the interview was on demand and that I should complete the interview within 2 days time. I have not had to interview for a job in several years, so I was a bit nervous. I read online about the typical questions that are asked and prepared my answers and proceeded to memorize them. This worked well until I took the practice questions and froze. I ended up practicing in front of a mirror and finally felt comfortable enough to take the interview. The interview was a disaster. The issue was that the job description was inaccurate and I was asked questions about technologies that I did not have experience with, so embarrassing. All I could do was politely explain that the interview questions referenced technologies that were not in the job description. I completed the interview (I was able to answer a couple questions), but knew that there was no way I was going to be hired for that job. The next day I contacted the HR department and they confirmed that the job description was incomplete and that the information would be updated to better reflect the position.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (Gainesville, FL) in February 2015.
I was scheduled for an interview after I met them at our university career fair. It was a simple behavioral interview which was kinda like the screening for the next round. Unfortunately, they never got back to me about the status of my application or weather I was selected for the next round or not. I was really looking forward to working with them. I left a voice-mail to my recruiter but he didn't get a response.

It was through a career fair on campus, they asked me what position I was looking for and my gpa. Then gave me an interview on the spot. They asked to come the day after the career fair to conduct the interview.

I had a phone interview first, and then an in person interview at a plant they have in Delaware County PA back in August. The actual interview was an OK experience. Some of the questions felt like they were made up right on the spot. The people were polite and friendly and the facility was very clean and organized. I felt that I gave the interview my best and left with a positive feeling. However, when I called Nextera a few times to simply check my interview status they kept telling me the same line that they were still interviewing and didn't have a decision. They never called me once to keep me aware of what was going on even though they said they would let me know if I did or did not get the job. The job recruiter in Juno Beach just started to ignore my phone calls. Very unprofessional treatment I was given after the interview. I am in the middle of obtaining employment with a much more professional company now, what a waste of time for me.

Apply online. Fulfill all requirements in their entirety. Either get offered an OnDemand Interview where you record your answers to questions. Or an HR rep calls you to set up an interview with you and the manager of the location you are applying for. The questions are all very simple i.e. why did you choose your major, describe an innovative project you've worked on, and why NextEra. Overall the process takes a little under a month.
- Very straightforward. Nothing that will catch you off guard. Answer Question
Didn't negotiate since it was my first internship so I'm not too sure about this.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (State College, PA) in December 2014.
I applied through my school's website and and around 2 weeks later I got an email to conduct an online interview consisting of five questions. The interview was prerecorded and only took around 10 minutes, but I was not invited to participate in a second round. Overall, it was a very easy process, I just wish I prepared more.

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (Juno Beach, FL).
Was sent an email to access the on-demand interview process after my resume made it through screening; the questions are typical of interviews but you don't speak directly to a person and instead record yourself. Although you are given time in the beginning to practice using the software and to view your video, the actual questions aren't provided ahead of time and you don't get to see what you submit. You have 30 seconds to think about your answer and 2 minutes to record your answer. I did not receive any further communication after submitting the video for 8 weeks when I received a canned rejection email. I called the recruiter a week prior to receiving the email, because I was well-along in with another company in the hiring process and the sound of this position was more exciting to me; she did not answer and did not return my call. I was able to contact the recruiter only because she called me to tell me the on-demand email was being sent and I saved her number and name. Very impersonal and unprofessional especially for a position at this level. I also continually checked the Nextera career website. No information there either.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. in November 2014.
I first received an on-line interview invitation through email. This online interview required you to answer about 7 typical telephone screen interview type questions. About 4 weeks after completing the online interview, I received company recruiter's telephone to arrange on-site interview at their HQ in Juno Beach, FL. During on-site interview, I talked to six interviewers, one-by-one, 30 minutes each, from 9am to 12pm. Since I talked to each interviewer individually in their office, I introduced myself and talked about my past experience, career plan, etc, for six times!! Interview ended by lunch with hiring manager.
