Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Westinghouse (Monroeville, PA).

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry, PA).

    Interview

    You submit your information onto an online site. Come in person for an interview. Westinghouse provided a list of potential questions which they actually asked from. These questions didn't have to do with my technical skill but about work ethic and how I handle working with tight deadlines and in difficult situations. Because I had the questions beforehand, I was able to provide quick and thorough responses using specific examples. After the interview, I received a call about an offer. I negotiated the salary, received an offer letter, and joined the company.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle having more work to finish than can be done by your deadline?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate salary, but they would not budge on that. They would only increase my sign on bonus. They were actually very shady about this. The HR person told me that there is ceiling to each band/position, so a person can only make so much within that band. This was the excuse as to why my salary couldn't be increased. When I was hired, I found out I was actually below the bottom of the band, so the HR person lied to me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry Twp, PA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview with a HR rep. Nothing surprising there. I was then flown out for a one on one interview with a manager. I was given a list of possible questions ahead of time and all the questions came from that list. Pretty normal questions. "Tell me about a time that you did this or that...".

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They offered me X. I said, "I have an offer from another company for X + Y. They called back 5 minutes later and gave me X + Y.
