    I have been working at Great River Energy full-time (more than 10 years)


    I really like the people I work with. The work atmosphere is positive and everyone is focused and works hard. Yet we have a lot of work/life balance and flexible work hours. I feel like they care about my wellbeing.


    Since the financial crisis, GRE has been holding the line on costs and hiring. We're seeing a little growth now, so I'm hopeful this will loosen up a little.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Great River Energy in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    At first the interviewer talked about his company's goal and later asked me few questions about my background experience. The one question asked contained that " explain your research experience where you have achieved what you set for". Next question was to ask him few questions. I asked him about my role in his company once I join. Also, I asked about the interviewer's role in the company and what kind of students are they looking for that position.
