    Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Alliant Energy (Madison, WI) in March 2018.

    Interview

    My impression was that the hiring process was non-transparent and very dishonest. I was approached online by the HR department for an open position in the audit department but was told multiple times through out the process that an actual interview was not being conducted ( It really was). The entire process took around 4-5 months starting in late fall to early spring. There were 2 " interviews" with HR, an hour long phone call with the department managers several months later then an onsite interview with the "lead auditor" and one of the audit managers another few months down the road. Before the onsite interview you are asked to spend a significant amount of time applying to the position on their job portal, providing all of your background information and reference information. I ultimately was not offered a position there and was never told the result of the interview process. I had already accepted an offer that had a future start date and rejected another offer prior to walking into that interview but was curious about the department, current initiatives and potential fit anyways/ Ultimately I wasted a significant amount of my time for a company who was simply window shopping. Big F for the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • Lets just say they didn't ask anything that allowed them to effectively determine the value I could have provided to them. First question was " Are you capable of performing the job duties described in the position description? "   1 Answer

    Met at career fair on campus. Had a phone interview a couple weeks later. The interview was fairly laid back, with not too many tough questions. Found out the result a day or two later.

    Interview

    Well put together questions, tough, but the interviewers were really respectful and kind. They took about 2 months to get back to us after the interview process so many of us assumed we did not get the job before we were called

    Team Lead Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alliant Energy (Madison, WI) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Alliant uses behavior interviewing mixed with 3 job related and 3 questions related to your experience and qualifications. 4 people interviewed me: 3 directors and 1 HR.

    Right away they asked me to verbalize my qualifications for the position without presenting my resume. Luckily for me I had a qualifications summary already printed out.

    The behavioral questions were very typical. What would you do type questions.

    The job related questions asked me how I would handle team issues and internal customer relationships

    The qualification questions asked me to describe my past achievements as they would related to this position.

    The interviewers were very nice to me and the meeting room was comfortable. I choked up once and one of the interviewers offed me his unopened water.

    The clothing attire was professional casual and the office is only about 5 years old so it is in very nice condition. The cafe was clean and offered several choices for breakfast and lunch.
