    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The United Illuminating Company in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed in-person. It was not technical in nature. Interviewed by telephone as well, it was miserable. Slow conversation with a lot of those behavioral interview questions. All my coworkers seemed to have the same experience with the same guy when they did a phone interview. Don't get discouraged when yours goes really poorly, I think that guy is used to it. Probably doing it on purpose to see how you work under pressure?

    I didn't try to negotiate. It took them a long time to "settle out what the salary will be"

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The United Illuminating Company in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recommended by an internal Director in IT. Met with HR first. Followed by meeting the number 2 guy a week later. Agency (Russell Reynolds) indicated the CEO wanted someone with Utility background even though the number 2 guy indicated I would be a perfect fit. Oh well.

    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at The United Illuminating Company in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview had a fairly friendly atmosphere. I was asked general questions about teams and project that I've worked on. There was strong emphasis on teamwork and leadership, which is fairly standard. There was a short reasoning question, but nothing hard. Ultimately, the job turned out to not be what I was looking for, but we had a friendly chat and I feel like I gained a lot from the experience.
