    Senior Nuclear Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Westinghouse in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    "Hiring Event" style, over 40 people, hotel and flight paid for. The night before the interview there was a 3 hour "social meeting" with food and drinks served. This gives you the chance to mingle with the managers who will be interviewing you. (Do not let this go to waste, this is how I was able to pull vital information out of the managers on what type of employee they were looking for). The next day there were three 45 minute interviews planed for most people. Breakfast and lunch was served. Very nice experience

    Interview Questions
    • Behavioral type questions. Must use S.T.A.R format. They write down your responses. 4 behavioral questions at each interview station. Some tough questions were asked especially about past customer service and safety, not your "typical" behavior questions.   View Answer

    Experience led to a 12 month internship instead of original 3. Progressed to learn actual day to day work not just special internship projects.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cranberry Township, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cranberry Township, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Westinghouse in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw them at my school's career fair and they were not taking resumes but they gave you a card and you went to their site to apply online. No on-campus interviews. Near the end of the semester only a few days in advance, they invited me to an 'Intern Cafe' event where you could go and hand your resume around to as many people as possible.

    I handed my resume to several people with no luck and was on my way to leave when one of the managers asked me for a resume. He took me and a few other guys into the lobby, looked over each of our resumes and talked to us about them. Very informative guy.

    A couple weeks later, after I had given up hope, I got an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no 'questions.' It was more of just going over the resume.   Answer Question

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cranberry, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Cranberry, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Westinghouse.

    Interview Details

    The process was extremely long. The time it took to get a phone screen scheduled, then an in-person interview was months. The interview process itself is pretty easy. They ask all situational questions so you just have to be prepared with examples.The manager seemed nice but the questions were not technical in nature at all.

    Interview Questions
    • They back you into a corner with one question about someone you've worked with that you didn't agree with their values. It was a bit awkward and hard to think of an example.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    By the time i got the go ahead for a start date, nearly a month and a half had passed. I accepted an offer with another company almost a month before Westinghouse got back to me.

    Drafter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Monroeville, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Westinghouse.

    Interview Details

    There are job listings on the Westinghouse website. To apply for a position you must fill out a length application thru Brassring. (It will prompt you thru all the steps) There are many questions, many in which you my have answered in your resume. There is absolutely no way to get a permanent position with out doing this. People complain about how long it is, but if you can't do 3 hours of work to show that you are a good fit, than maybe you are not a good fit.

    I had a panel interview, with my manager, their manager and an HR rep. The questions where more geared towards your work ethics and how you handle yourself in not so perfect situations. They actually send you a list of questions that they will ask so you can be prepared.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't remember them. I think it is because I was prepared with the questions they were asking.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiation because I was happy just to be offered a job with a great company coming out of school. Sorry no help
