    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at American Bureau of Shipping in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    First I sent my resume through LinkedIn to a HR and she forwarded my resume to the Principal manager, who left his role and moved to other office in the same company later. Then I got a call from HR and briefly introduced the opening in the OED department. Then they scheduled an on-site interview in the Houston office that is on Northchase dr. The interview is pretty simple and straight forward. Asked several questions related to my field of study, the load flow and some other basic electrical engineering questions. And some questions about my personality after that. And that's it. My hobbies something like that.

    Interview Questions
    • The load analysis. I only know load flow but have no idea of load analysis.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Just a phone call said they liked me and would like to offer the job for 68000 annually.
    Accepted Offer
