    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Duquesne Light (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The people at Duquesne Light are very open-minded individuals and seem to work very hard. I can see how they value what they do and why they pay what they do.They like to look past the metrics and see what a person really is qualitatively. 10/10 would go to another interview
