    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ameren in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview was easy, just basic information about yourself. Behavioral interview a little intimidating, Ameren uses the SHARE method. As long as you prepare yourself ahead of time you will do fine.

    Office Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameren (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    First was a phone call with hr. Straightforward phone call asking about my resume and work experience. In person panel interview was the second step. The potential hiring manager as well as their manager and a couple other managers in the department were part of the panel. 100% behavioral. If you look up typical behavioral int questions you will find many that are asked. Have lots of examples of situations that fit the question. Know your background and how it applies to the role. Was offered a position but declined. Only issue I had with the process was the hr person could not clearly explain the bonus amount and how it was decided.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ameren (Decatur, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was quick, but decision is very slow and takes over a month sometimes with no response. Reimbursement for trips are tricky and very slow (months) to get so be careful with how you spend on the trip.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ameren (Champaign, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I first applied online. The interviewing started with a brief phone interview discussing qualifications and relevant experience, then moved on to a 'formal' behavioral interview at the office. Neither interview was tough or went technically in depth, but I struggled with some of the obscure behavioral questions.
