I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Southern Nuclear in May 2013.
Interview Details – Applied for position posted online. Was phoned for an interview a couple months later. There were no questions in the interview that asked anything about what I actually knew about Engineering. All questions pertained to how I interacted with people. 2 weeks passed when I received an email stating they had not decided on who they were going to hire. A few days later someone from HR called me to tell me my min salary was too high. (This was entered on my application I initially filled out.) I explained that I had simply put down my current salary. She told my the max they could pay was $20k less than what I listed. I agreed to the cut in order to gain a permanent job. After this conversation, I did not hear from them for 2 more weeks. I then received an email telling me would not be receiving an offer.
Interview Question – The most unexpected part was the lack of interest in my knowledge of Engineering. Answer Question

Interview Details – The interview process did not take long. Everyone was professional and friendly. I received an email confirming time and date. I was assigned a hostess who treated me to lunch and gave me a plant tour. She also answered any questions that I had and gave me encouraging words.
Interviewed at Southern Nuclear
Interview Details – The process was fairly simple. Online application and phone interview. The interview was just a few behavioral questions with HR person, not bad at all. The best part of the internship is that housing is paid for - which is super great!

Interview Details – The interview process is very casual and in a relaxed setting. Most interview questions are very straight forward with a higher subjective answer bank than objective. Management is eager to know the real you, your real experiences and your real opinions. This company relies on the diversity of its workforce to move forward and continually improve. Try to think outside the box when you answer "how" something could be done. Remember, this is a nuclear power plant so Safety is Top Priority. Let that show in all your answers. Be open to change and eager to learn. Maintain eye contact. Positive body language and strong eye contact are high positives.
Negotiation Details – I counter offered their initial offer and accepted their second offer. Be careful though, this management team will not always offer a second time.
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Southern Nuclear in April 2011.
Interview Details – I was scheduled for an interview and was not told what to expect until about 5 minutes before it started. There was a panel of three interviewers and someone from HR who just watched. Most of the questions were pretty standard: Tell me about a time when... You went against the norm, you had a problem when working on a group project, you showed leadership skills.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you showed leadership skills. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Southern Nuclear in November 2010.
Interview Details –
First apply via the website, then wait for someone in HR to contact you. I could not find a way to contact someone directly about my submitted application, so I waited to hear from somebody. Once they contact you, everything moves fast. In less than a week, I was on site to take tests and interview. Tests are basically aptitude tests. The interview consisted of three person panel, one person from HR, one from Training, and one from Operations. Best advice from me is to go prepared with examples on how you can perform under pressure. The interviewers were very polite and easy to speak to. They did not try to trip you up in questions, but asked tough situational questions to see/hear your response. Overall it was a great experience.
They will call about two weeks later with an offer or to decline you employment.
