    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Energy Future Holdings in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview with director consisted of briefing of duties. Secondary panel interview consisted of general questions regarding motivations, future plans, and then they challenged me to solve a real-world problem that had occurred during documentation. After this question, we talked about company culture, and I asked them what they wanted in an ideal candidate, how contractors were evaluated, and who I would be reporting to for my duties.

    Two weeks later I was given a job offer through my recruiter.
