    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Colorado Springs Utilities.

    Interview

    The application/interviewing process is a joke & needs to be totally overhauled. After I passed their stupid online assessment test I was sent an email stating that my resume was forwarded onto the "hiring committee". I never heard anything back after that. Then my candidate profile was deleted without any notification that my profile was removed..

    Interview

    Before an interview, I was contacted with 3 different rounds of online assessment tests. One would think, okay, a quick test to make sure you're a viable candidate, no problem. But 3 very extensive tests are WAY TOO MUCH to require when you don't even know if you would want the job, as you only have a brief job description and no human contact to address questions or details. The online tests wasted about 2 hours of my time. The practice is absolutely ridiculous and turns me against ever wanting to work there . . . and should make you think about applying as well!

    Interview Questions

    • Online testing consisted of personality profile, situational testing, and a more job specific test regarding project management. Some were timed, some not.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Colorado Springs Utilities (Colorado Springs, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very thorough and not at all intimidating. First there was a phone interview and after that there was a face-to-face interview. For the face-to-face interview, there was a panel of four people that did a great job of putting me at ease immediately. It was very informal and natural.

One phone interview, one in person interview with a panel, and then an informal interview with the manager. Wait time before I was called in to interview was about 3 weeks, then everything happened extremely quickly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Colorado Springs Utilities (Colorado Springs, CO) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I was not asked to be interviewed. However, they administered an eSkill test to sort through the candidates. This test was 90 minutes long and had 66 questions covering the topics of: Cost Accounting, Budgeting and Fiscal Planning. The questions had 2-3 sentences to read and they were multiple choice. Understand cost accounting basics, reading financial statements, allocating labor hours, variance analysis, debits and credits to the financial statements, inventory (LIFO, FIFO) and accrual accounting methods. From what I remember, financial models were not covered. You cannot use a calculator or any resources. If you do not have a background in accounting, this test will be difficult for you complete within the allocated time.
