    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    interviewed at PPL Electric in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied in April and was called in July to come in for an interview. The HR representative was very unprofessional through the entire process and even texted my personal cell phone asking to move the interview date. My interview went fairly well and involved meeting with 2 supervisors and 5 behavioral questions. After the interview i was told I would hear back in a few weeks. To this day (November), I have not heard anything and every email I send to the HR representative he has passively answered or ignored my questions.

    Interview Details

    First round interview only lasted 15 minutes or so. Was contacted a few days later saying they would let me know soon and then was contacted again asking for a second interview. Not sure if second interview is standard or not. Second interview was about 30 minutes and was more of a conversation than just question and answers

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PPL Electric.

    Interview Details

    Started off by asking what you know about the company, then gave a basic overview of what the company actually does. Also asked to describe previous experience and courses taken. Then 3 behavioral interview questions were asked. Overall the interview was not very technical in nature, definitely more behavioral based. The interviewers frequently asked if I had any questions so make sure you have questions prepared.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PPL Electric in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was an interview at my university (University of Maryland, College Park.) The interviewer was an easy-going person. He talked about the company and what they do in general, then asked me questions. They ask behavioral questions like "describe a time when ...?" Then you should answer with a specific example of how you have demonstrated certain behaviors or skills.

    I applied online and was contacted about 3 weeks later for a 30-minute phone interview. This interview focused on behavioral questions and my career goals because I didn't have any prior professional experience. Afterwards, I was contacted for an in-person interview.
