    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allentown, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PPL in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    PPL contacted me during my final week of college and worked around my finals schedule to arrange an interview for PPL Electric Utilities. Questions were fairly standard and when I was unfamiliar with their STAR protocol both hiring managers took ample time explaining. The interview lasted about an hour and seemed to focus on one's ability to survive in a high stress work place. Hiring managers would take turns asking questions and frequently change the direction of conversation, presumably to gauge reaction to shifting circumstances.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PPL in June 2011.

    I was a temporary employer through Quad 656, then hired as a Spec Pro thru PPL. That was a contracted position. The interview process was arranged by Quad 656 member. I met with PPL HR Manager and three members from the Energy Services and Infrastructure team. Job function was really not discussed. Primary questions were based on working as a team with other members of the department, job duties described as Administrative Assistant.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were based on situations arising with team members and how you would handle situations. Such as, if someone was talking to to you long, how would you tell them you want to get back to work? Or if another team member needs your help, would you be able to multi-task to complete your job and also help your team member? How would you react to having to respond to the President of the department if he needed your help?   View Answer
