    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pepco Holdings.

    Interview

    The interview is highly structured. There is a youtube video and paperwork they want you to go over first. All interviews seem to go over the same paperwork and they ask that you don't share questions outside the interview. They I can tell you is that it seems they are looking for you to say key words and phrases in your responses and they seem to jot down notes when you say these key phrases. Talking more and better than talking less. They are OK with you repeating stories if you add details and change the emphasis to match their questions.

    Interviews are at least two hours and very difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me not to share questions outside of the interview.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was successful although I did have to beat around the bush a little bit to gain ground.
