    I have been working at Austin Energy

    Pros

    The work life balance is really good. There's rarely a week where you work more than 40 hours.

    Cons

    Lack of a challenge, people who have been at positions for too long, all the con's of working for a government

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Austin Energy in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online about 4 days before listed posting close date. I was contacted via phone the day before closing date to schedule a phone interview. First interview was about an hour of questions with a three person panel including the hiring supervisor. Questions were basic about experience in the field and utility experience. Not much detail was asked about why I personally wanted to join the company or selling the company to me. It also started with me being told no relocation reimbursement was allowed for the position.

    I was contacted via email for a second and final interview about 3 days later. They called 15 minutes early knowing I have a job currently and pulling me away from a meeting. This interview was exhaustive with a panel of 5 people asking canned questions. It became clear during this interview that I was simply a placeholder finalist as the person for the position was likely an internal applicant or had some other personal relationship with the decision makers.

    Once again I had to inquire about the offer timeline and was told they'd have a decision by next week. It's now been two weeks and I've heard literally nothing from them. I even emailed to admin. Person who set up the interview and she said she'd check with HR and get back to me. It's been a week and a half and I've heard nothing.

    Not really a ver professional or respectful process.

The capital city of Texas may have a laid-back reputation, but it uses plenty of energy. Austin Energy is a municipally owned electric utility that serves more than 400,000 residential and commercial customers. Its about 3,000 MW of generation capacity comes primarily from its interests in three gas-fired plants, part-ownership of a coal-fueled facility, and a 16% stake in a nuclear-powered plant. Renewable energy sources include wind power and landfill methane. Austin Energy has been producing electricity since 1895, when a hydroelectric plant opened on the Colorado... More
