    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PPL (Berwick, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initially contacted through a phone call and an e-mail for an interview time. 1 week later we had the interview at the onsite training center. The interview was behavioral interview with other typical interview questions. Met with 2 Engineering managers and a person from HR. They were all very nice and welcoming. The interview was very relaxed and I was given adequate time to answer all questions. Answers were asked to be done in STAR format.
