    Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Westinghouse in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very weak selection process. Recruiter does phone screen and then a panel interviews you. They only ask one question per competency and then they make you wait in another room while they discuss. I received an offer shortly thereafter. Some of the interviewers didn't seem very comfortable with interviewing; one had just graduated from college.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were not difficult. They didn't seek many details and didn't seem to be able to determine whether they were getting complete stars, false stars or half stars.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Westinghouse in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online in October and was invited to a "internship cafe" in early January. At the cafe, potential candidates are broken down by discipline and are free to speak with managers related to their field. I spoke to at least 7 different managers. (Note: Make sure to bring plenty of resumes as you must provide a copy of your resume to each manager). I was contacted a few days later with an offer from a manager I spoke with.

    Engineer Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed 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.
