Interview Question – Are you ready to work any where in whole organization? View Answer
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at POWER Engineers in September 2009.
Interview Details – Interview involved an initial phone screen, followed by a meet-and-greet in the office. About 2 hours for the on-site interview. First, with HR for company culture, benefits Q&A etc. Technical interview with a panel of peers and project engineers/managers. Overall, a little "overbearing" based on the scope of the individuals involved, yet on par with what should be expected for a professional interview.
Negotiation Details – Negotiations were fair...though bounded.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at POWER Engineers in August 2010.
Interview Details – human resource interview. 2 interviews maximum, one with hr, one with hiring manager. not good work culture, very low pay compared to other energy companies in houston, tx.
Interview Question – any technical issues ran in previous job? Answer Question
The process took 3 months - interviewed at POWER Engineers in April 2011.
Interview Details – I am a fairly experienced senior engineer, during my career I used to interview and hire employees, contractors, and consultants.
I have NEVER experienced or seen an interviewing process like this one: over the period of 10 weeks, I was phone screened twice, face-to-face interviewed with panels of people twice (combined discussion time is, in my estimate, close to 12 hours) , ALL of my references checked and grilled about me and...nothing. Haven't heard from them since.
Usually, checking references is the last step after you already tentatively make-up your mind and feel you will extend an offer to the candidate. Of course, unless checking references unvails something really bad about the candidate, which does not happen very often.
Keep in mind that this is NOT a management position or any other strategically important administrative position, just a simple engineering position.
I have to say that they were all very nice and pleasent with me during this process, I have absolutely no complaints there...I am not in a particular hurry but after three months it would be nice to know what the outcome is, don't you think so? At this point of time, I think that even a rejection is better than no answer at all.
Somebody somewhere will have to make a decision at one point of time, and it almost seems that nobody is authorized or willing to do that.
Interview Question – During two conference calls and three face-to-face meetings, I've heard every question you can think of, from "where do you see yourself in five years?" which is OK for recent college grads but probably out of place in my case, to "do you have a dog?" Answer Question
