    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bloom Energy (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The frame time from the interview through the hiring process was very short, around 2 weeks. The interview process was carried out by 5 engineers from different departments; each of them interviewed me for around 15 to 20 minutes. The hiring process was very smooth, everything was very well organized. The hiring day, I met with personal from HR, IT, Safety department, and with the team of the department I was going to start to work with. Each department provided me with the necessary tools to perform my job.

    Interview Questions

    • The unexpected question was: What would you do if your boss yells at you?   1 Answer
    • Another unexpected question: What would you do if you are working with a coworker on a short-term project, but she/he is not doing his part?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The offer seemed very fair to me. They offered me $ 20.00 per hour for an internship position, and gave me the option of time and a half payment for overtime hours. I think that that kind of money for a person that is learning to work as an engineer with not major responsibilities is fair. I have friends doing internships for IBM, and they get paid nothing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloom Energy in May 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring was easy. Talk to my direct hiring manager worked. I had many questions related to my past experience which was in Electrical Industry. They want to know how and what you worked for. It was a pleasant experience.

    The second round was with Global Manager and it went really well. Again it was about my ability to understand industry problems. I was asked about my commitment for the company.

    The third round was bit technical where they asked me about how well I can adapt to the new environment.

    Make sure you have interest in the industry and want to work for the company. Be ready with the basic details of the company. Ask as many questions as possible. Also share your college work and some projects you participated in.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They pay a bit less than the technology companies but you can survive. Most importantly you will learn a lot.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloom Energy (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Awful. Contacted by recruiter through Indeed. I went through 5 rounds. The only big thing they emphasize was whether or not I would stay for 2 years at least. I said of course, I've been at my job for 2 years. I passed their test of writing emails and using Microsoft Excel. Met with many people, office manager, head of hr, etc. Everyone loved me and said they would put in a good word. Even the recruiter said she wanted me to be hired between me and someone else. Finally went to last interview to meet with my potential manager, the EA to CEO. Right before the interview the recruiter went in to get her. Instead of having an interview they turned me away and decided that the job was no longer available. They decided they wanted to hire an intern. You couldn't have possibly told me before I drove there? Seriously? Very unprofessional. One of the worst interviews I've been to.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bloom Energy (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews then an on-campus interview with (8) different people from various departments at Bloom. All touching on a different skill or aspect of the job. Interview process was initiated via an internal recruiter through LinkedIn. Interviewed 3 weeks later and had offer 2 weeks after that.

    Company appears to be scaling operations quite a bit. Fast pace and high-energy environment. Met a lot of great and very bright people during the interview process. Didn't accept offer to pursue other opportunities.
