    Instructor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Monroeville, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Westinghouse in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    This is a very general interview. They ask a lot about information on your resume, projects, internships, etc. They inquire about favorite classes, what type of work you like to do, where you see yourself fitting in a team, etc. to get a good sense of what type of employee you would be. They do not grill you at all. The information is passed on to the different departments within the company and they can choose to interview you further for an actual position.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer asked me about an experience I was most proud of and that I think was the most successful.   Answer Question
