    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at CenterPoint Energy (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    First, I sent in a recorded interview. Then I was offered a face to face interview with a panel consisting of an IT manager and 3 supervisors. They took turns asking me a series of questions, mostly pertaining to following processes and overcoming difficulties in previous positions. The IT manager was pretty disinterested the entire interview, spending a great deal of time texting on his phone. One of the supervisors put down my skills and implied I don't really have any. At the end of the interview, they gave me the old "We have other people to interview, so we'll let you know either way." That, in addition to how weak their handshakes were at the end told me they did not envision me as the best candidate for the position. They never contacted me after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at CenterPoint Energy in October 2017.

    Interview

    Process took a month and a half. Submitted resume/application through company website in middle of August. Received an email approximately 3 weeks later to take part in a Hirevue online interview that was easy. 2 weeks after that I received a call from a recruiter to come in for a sit down panel interview the next week. I knew I wasn't getting the job from the moment the guy came into the waiting area to greet me and bring me back into the interview. Before I could even sit down he was saying very loudly to the other 2 interviewers how he knew my family and what not. The questions were very repetitive and they seemed non interested the entire time. I was over qualified for the position and thought that would be a plus but I guess they are on the "good ole boy system" here in Gulfport, MS so I assume someone that the Supervisor is friends with got the job. I could tell by the very weak and feminine way each one shook my hand at the end that I had wasted my time and money even going. If you don't know someone at this company don't even waste your time applying for any of the technician jobs TRUST ME.

    Interview

    Interview Process was a Video Interview where you are ask preset questions via Hireview where you record and submit your answers. Personally I am not a big fan of pre-recorded interviews as it makes the whole process seem very cold and automated.
