    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at POWER Engineers (Billings, MT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied and accepted an Intern position in Substation Physical Design. I applied to a few Intern positions with POWER as far back as a month before I had the interview, and spoke with an employee about the company and job opportunities early on. I then contacted them about a week before our University's Recruitment Fair, to let them know I was interested. After speaking to them in person at the fair, I followed up a week later and they asked me to come down to the office for an interview. It was very laid back and conversational. They spoke a great deal about the work, let me look at some project plans, and then offered me the internship. They were friendly and straightforward. Overall a very positive experience.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    I got grilled at a career fair, about a half hour of very technical questions. He said he was quizzing my school, not me, but that's not how it felt to me. After many emails, networking, following up I got a behavioral interview with HR. Long behavioral phone interview, tell me a time when etcc etcc.. They had heard I got pretty technical at the career fair so the HR rep wasn't sure if I would have to do another technical interview. Turns out I did, phone call with several people on the other end.. super technical.

    Two months after I had applied online, I finally received a phone call from HR. We scheduled a phone interview for later that week. The phone interview was your basic HR type interview. The woman said I did very well at the end of the interview and explained that I would be contacted in the next two weeks to schedule a technical interview. I haven't heard from them since, and the job is still posted on their site over 1 year later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at POWER Engineers (Boise, ID) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was very informal lunch. The man interviewing me had shorts, a tee shirt, and a ball cap on which made me really overdressed. It was an entry level position so there was no technical questions asked. The interview was basically to see if my personality would fit well with his group.

    Interview Questions

    • No technical or business questions were asked. Probably because this was an entry level position.   Answer Question
