    I applied online. I interviewed at CONSOL Energy.

    Interview

    The setting was easy to talk and one HR member and two to three department managers typically involved. The questions were nothing out of the ordinary when interviewing for a job.

    Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Canonsburg, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CONSOL Energy (Canonsburg, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Single Interview with multiple screenings.
    First was contacted by hiring manager via email, had a small chat with him on the phone letting him know of my skills and experience briefly. Then was contacted by HR to setup an interview at thier corporate office in Canonsburg. I was supposed to be interviewed by three people but one could not make it so it was just myself, the hiring manager and someone from HR. They asked pretty standard questions, a lot was about prior work experience though. Afterwards I submitted to a background check and drug screening.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at CONSOL Energy (State College, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Asked pretty standard questions. Was nervous and didn't answer the question too well. Didn't get an offer but its a tough time in this field right now.

    One thing I did not like is that I was told that if I hadn't heard anything, it was a good thing. Didn't hear anything or get any reply to my email until months later saying that I had been declined.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CONSOL Energy.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position. Salary requirement was one of the questions, which I answered. I was called in for an interview about a week later. Interview was awkward, not relaxed. I was told mostly negative things about the company. Only after the interview did I find out that the salary was only half of what my requirement was. This is very disrespectful. Why would you waste everyones time if the salary isn't even a close match? I obviously told them I'm not interested.

    • Tell me about a project that you had to work on by yourself.(something to that effect)   Answer Question
    • Tell me how you had to convince others in your company to go along with a project that they didn't agree with (can't remember exact wording)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CONSOL Energy (State College, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. The interviewer was laid back and asked me very standard questions about my GPA, leadership positions etc. The interview was very informal and the interviewer made it seem more like a conversation than an actual interview. He asked if I ever encountered any problems while holding my leadership position and how I overcame them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CONSOL Energy.

    Interview

    Interviewed at a university. No engineers were present. The interviewer couldn't answer any question I had. It only lasted ten minutes and was a waste of time. They only look at GPA, nothing more. I have six years of military service with leadership positions in the engineering sector and they didn't want to hear about it. But they did want to know about my cardboard bridge building competition my first semester as a freshman!
