    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Alabama Power (Birmingham, AL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted someone who works here, and they got me a "get to know" meeting that ended up feeling like a technical interview. However, it was very relaxed and casual. The only thing is that I didn't hear anything from them, again, until a month later when I received an offer.

They asked a series of situational questions that I had no idea of. And i really felt like they didnt give me a chance. I received an email about 2 months later saying they went with other candidates.
