    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Xcel Energy in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was two part, an initial phone interview, then a face to face meeting. During the phone interview I was asked situational questions. I didn't realize companies still used this process as it is not the best way to gather background information. To my surprise, the face to face meeting was just more situational questions.
