I worked at Southern Union full-time (More than 3 years)
Run by a great executive team that provided general direction for major projects and entrusted the staff in the organization to execute the projects. Many outstanding smart people were at Southern Union.
Perhaps a little too risk adverse at times regarding business expansion opportunities and pursuit of additional assets to bolster market share.
Advice to Management
Allow more U.S. and international expansion projects. Expand the company into the top interstate pipeline company in North America.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Southern Union (Houston, TX) in September 2008.
It was a three and a half hour interview process. It started with a one on one with an HR rep. I got the standard company history and employee benefits speech. I was then quoted a proposed salary and bonus plan which was a lot better than I had hoped.Then I interviewed with whom would be my direct supervisor. I then was escorted to another interview with one my supervisor's peers that I would also be working with. From there it moved on to my supervisor's supervisor the Vice President. It was a very long morning but each interviewer made things very comfortable. I didn't get a lot of "test "questions, they knew my background from my resume'. Each interviewer was more interested in me as a person and how it came to be that I was interviewing for this position. By the time I had returned home, there was a message on my answering machine to call the HR dept. I returned the call and was offered the postion. I made arrangements to meet with HR and schedule my drug screening the very next day. During my second meeting with HR I was told that the original salary & benefits offer had changed. The offer now would be $5,000 more annually and an additional week of vacation.
- The standard - Why would I be a good fit for this position? Answer Question
There was no negotiatate during my process. The company offered more than I could have hoped for. I considered the offer more than generous.
