    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bonneville Power (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed for two positions and they had very different interview styles. As a contracted employee, the interviews felt short and that I didn't necessarily get a view on what the job and culture would be like before I accepted the position.

    Systems Engineer III Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bonneville Power (Portland, OR) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Once the initial paperwork was completed the interview was good. Two people both managers asking questions from a list and going off topic easily. Standard questions for most of it. Eventually they diverted into tool and position specific questions. Easy to talk to and we spoke about specifically what I'd be handling quite a bit.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bonneville Power.

    Interview

    Hiring process is more or less straightforward. However, one key point is that it takes time to conduct the background check and general security clearance.

    Straight forward interview. Questions about how your resume/experience fits the position. Likely you can expect to address a scenario: describe your analysis approach and your proposed deliverables.
    Expect additional questions regarding how you would manage stakeholders, address change management and scope creep.
