    Pros

    This is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    They unfortunately value black, ethnic, and women more than having the right person for the job. If you fall into either of these categories and say a few key words during interviews, you are guaranteed the job over someone who has way more experience for the job but just doesn't hit key words.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Alabama Power in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and he talked to be over the phone and told me about the job and the interview process. The interview was located at the location where I would work. The interview was conducted with a panel of 4 (direct supervisor, his superior, a representative from corporate and a HR representative). The recruiter prepared you for the interview process by providing some example questions of what might be asked. This was very helpful. The interview was handled very professionally.
