    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Tri-State Generation and Transmission (Westminster, CO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted 2 weeks after applying online. The interview was scheduled a week out. I interviewed with 3 people- HR, Hiring Manager and Employee in Department. They had pre-typed questions and took turns asking. They were basic situational questions and it was very easy to carry on conversation with them.

    Interview

    Good process, became a permanent employee after 3 months as a temporary employee. The process was quick but I have heard that is not the case anymore. I have since then had other internal interviews and they can vary in difficulty depending on the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Tri-State Generation and Transmission in April 2013.

    Interview

    Tri-State came to my college to recruit for the rotational program. I started by interviewing at the school with one recruiter. This interview took about 30 minutes and covered questions about my resume and school activities. I was then selected to go to their headquarters in Westminster, CO for second interviews. They must have had a lot of applicants because they were very selective of who got second interviews. I know a few people that had first interviews and I was the only one brought to headquarters for the second. I first interviewed with the manager of the program for about an hour. Then I interviewed with four other employees who were from different departments that I would be in during the rotation. About a week later I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What activities are you involved in outside of school?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because the salary was already more than I was expecting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Tri-State Generation and Transmission (Westminster, CO) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Three or more months after I applied, I was asked to fill out another application because their online application system had problems, and they also wanted my resume. I sent these items. A few weeks later, I had a brief phone interview with the hiring manager. A couple of weeks later, I was told an in-person panel interview would be scheduled in a couple of weeks. The in-person interview was held a few weeks later. I met with three members of the team and with the HR manager. I was there for more than 90 minutes and was told I would likely receive feedback the next week. Up to this point, the HR manager was friendly and responsive if I had questions. It's been 3.5 weeks since the in-person interview and I haven't heard anything, although I did send a brief follow-up email asking about the status of the position. I assume it went into the black hole (ignored).

    After an interview with no offer, I can still be left with a good overall impression of a company, even if the interview process takes as long as this one did at Tri-State. When I hear nothing after an in-person interview, though (which seems to be an increasing trend from my research of this issue online), I am left with a very negative impression of the company and will never apply again.
