Interview Details – I was contacted by HR after submitting my resume through a job posting on the NU careers site. I then interviewed with two people in IT (an IT manager and another employee in IT work management). It was mostly behavioral ("give me a situation where you had to...") and they also asked about my major and classes I had taken (since this was my first internship and I was a sophomore going into my junior year). Very light, non-specific, technical questions were asked, and I just gave very general responses ("how would you debug a program").
Interview Question – how would do object-oriented methods help in developing an application Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Northeast Utilities in August 2010.
Interview Details – This company uses a "behavior based" interview process. The questions go like this; tell me about a time that you made an error, how did you correct it? How did you feel about it? or another one would be "tell me about the last difficult decision you had to make", why was it difficult?
They let you know that the interview is this type beforehand. Even though these type or not really "difficult", I found it difficult for me. Sometimes I was wondering if they were looking at my answers to be just work related or did they want them to be life related. Whatever the case, I didn't end up being offered the position, I was up against about 12 others. Just wasnt meant to be I guess.
Interview Question – Tell me the last time you made a mistake and what you did to correct it. View Answer
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Northeast Utilities in June 2010.
Interview Details – First got an email telling me to schedule a day to come in for a skills test. Signed up for a date. Showed up. Was then told, that it would be broken down into a Typing Test. Then IF you pass a Customer Service Rep Test. Then if you pass that you get a brief 1:1 pre-interview. Then, you are in limbo, then someone calls and schedules a phone interview. After phone interview you finally get a face to face interview with two managers. It was at the end of their day which I wouldn't recommend, because the interviewers were both literally with a foot out the door. After the face to face, they sit you down with a Customer Service Rep and let you listen to calls. Except in my case, they left for the day and left me with the representative, the rep ended up walking me out. Then after all this, I got a brief email telling me that they were not interested. Very frustrating interview process for an entry level position.
