    Cost Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameren (Saint Louis, MO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty standard interview. They do a quick phone screen to make sure everything is in order and you've got all the pre-requisites you need. Once you've gotten an in person interview, they'll bring you into the general office building in St. Louis for a behavioral interview where there will probably be about three people asking you questions. I've heard some interviews are as short as 30 minutes, mine was closer to an hour. They'll actually send you a list of example behavioral interview questions, which you should review because they will ask at least one or two that are on there. They also threw in a few technical questions for me at the end to see how proficient I was.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ameren (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Applied online. Contact a few days later to schedule a phone interview. My phone interview at the later date was about 30mins it went well the recruiter seems very interested in me and said I was what they were looking for and scheduled me for testing. I took the test, which was a 3hrs 3part exam and passed. Then asked back for a panel interview. This was prior to Christmas so I haven’t heard back yet but when I followed up the recruiter she said she was waiting to hear back as well so I’m still in high hopes that I’ll get the job!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ameren.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and received an invite for the phone interview within two days. The phone interview process was great and the recruiter was very professional. I was asked to talk through my work experience and I had two behavior based questions. I made it on the to the face to face interview which was very awkward. The interviewers introduced themselves and then sat there and talked about random things while I sat there listening. Once we finally got to the actual interview I walked through my work history and answered about 6 behavior based questions. It's been over a month and I have received no communication from them other than random people from the HR Department inviting me to happy hours numerous times after I told them I was sure they didn't mean to send them to me. That's not very good practice.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ameren (Pawnee, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went by pretty fast. The only thing I wasn't happy about was I was the last person of the day and it felt like they really didn't want to be there. I tried to ask questions at the end, but only got one word responses in return. The interview was very professional and formal.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you had to work with another department and it didn't go as planned. How did you handle the situation and what was the result?   1 Answer

    Customer Service Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ameren in July 2017.

    Interview

    Very long, impersonal process. Applied in May. Contacted for brief phone interview about 30+ days later. About a month later invited for panel interview and supervisor assessment. Passed the assessment. Interviewed with hiring manager, HR rep and another manager. Interview was cold. Behavioral questions that really did not show how I would be a fit or not in the position. Speak to the top of their heads as they took notes, very little eye contact...total lack of personal interface unless they were asking a question..but not really much eye contact. If you ask questions, they must be only the ones allowed anything else the HR rep will tell you to ask another question. The entire process took 3 months. A robot would have had a much better experience. Only the HR person seemed partially interested in what I had to say. Then as I left I learned an internal person was performing the duties of the position for several months. I was not selected nor did I expect to be since an internal person was basically already in the position. I have never felt so uncomfortable in an interview before. If that is any indication of how cold the work environment is, it was a good thing for me that an internal person was selected. Not sure why they bother with the LONG interview process when an internal person was going to be placed in the slot anyway. What a long waste of time and effort.
