    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bonneville Power in July 2009.

    Interview

    The Interview process depends on if you are applying for a apprentice job or journeyman position.Applying as a Journeyman, it still requires submitting mounds of detailed paperwork. Including info about family members.That being said, if you persist and plow through it, you will probably receive an interview. This consists of a 3-4 person panel that asks you questions on reading prints,writing a quick procedure to isolate a piece of equipment,what concerns you have when isolating it. And of course all the normal,why do want to work here,tell me about a time.. and so on. They really need qualified people now, so if you are decent,you will get a offer.It will take several months for them to process your paperwork and hire you.

    Interview Questions

    • If there was a job that you were doing and it was almost finished,but it was close to the end of the day what would you do?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation due to union rules.However, there is a strong possibility they can pay for your moving costs or a bonus if you are filling a position they really need filled. Ask if you can talk to a person that works at the location you are considering before you commit.
