    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AES Corporation (Arlington, VA).

    The process consisted of a phone screen with a company recruiter followed by a phone interview and finally an in-person interview with multiple business and legal representatives. Feedback was timely.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at AES Corporation (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    Internal hire, so process was shortened, but much the same for outside. Basic behavioural about interest in the position, and a few questions to gauge your depth of understanding of global power markets where AES has operations. One business case, very open ended.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were a developer for AES, where would you develop a project, what type of power project would it be, and why?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was smooth but hard to get terms in writing in my offer. Had to push back a couple times to ask them to include terms in the document. Was awkward, but the company in general is not formal about processes, including employment contracts.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AES Corporation (Arlington, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    For AES Energy Storage. Conducted a phone interview with HR (contracted) and then was flown out for an in-person. Met with half a dozen team members during the day-long interview and then waited for a month before the HR person contacted me to let me know that the position had been withdrawn. Expenses I paid (they covered hotel, flight but promised in email to cover food, Ubers) were never reimbursed, even after multiple follow-up emails and discussions.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AES Corporation.

    Interview

    Initial communications were very streamlined; I knew where I was going, when and who to contact. The entire process was very simple and straightforward. I was notified of with whom I would be interviewing in advance, so it gave me an opportunity to do some background research on the people who would be interviewing me.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I wanted to stay in the position I was being considered for long-term. Mind you, the position was entry-level and when previously been asked what my 5 and 10-year goals were, they would not be in line to answering this question as 'yes.'   Answer Question
