    Pros

    Very flexible office hours, management cares about their employees, pay is good, benefits are average, work/life balance is highly promoted, 3 different committees to socialize and help out the communities.

    Cons

    The power division has so much work, they're struggling to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Be more observant to workload of the employees.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Primera Engineers.

    Interview

    Enjoyable process. Started with a call from the HR. Just your standard HR questions that you find online. Then went on to talk to the head engineer. He was a nice guy and easy to talk to. Mostly talked about my experience and how it can benefit them. Much more technical than the first interview though. The last interview I had was with the two lead engineers for my division. This was a Skype interview and wasn't too difficult but they definitely are gauging how well you will fit into the office at this point. It was like having a mix of the HR interview and head engineer interview. Some technical questions and some personality. I got my offer letter the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • Probably asking about why I want to work there. I'm not from Chicago so I had to convince them that I truly wanted to move out there and work for them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Still going through it but from what I've dealt with so far I'm sure they will make it enjoyable.
