    Transmission Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Talked to the hiring manager on the phone, then his boss, then they decided to fly me in for on site interview. It consisted of a packed schedule with dozens of interviewers. Some interviewers were really brutal, rudely trying to nitpick and destroy my personality. Some asked about irrelevant or trivial issues under the guise of being serious in the hiring process. I acknowledge that I wasn't as prepared for the interview as I should have, but this was a terrible experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Constellation (Baltimore, MD) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through the company website and received a phone screening a few weeks later. I waited a long time until I got a regular interview. The interview was rather standard with many behavioral questions. I did not receive an offer, however I felt that the interview process took entirely too long.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    I had to interview with the Director, two HR managers, the HR Vice President, and two other business partners that I would be writing for. The process was very long and very drawn out for virtually no reason. They ended up stopping the recruiting process due to a higher position becoming vacant.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation.

    Interview

    It was a campus recruitment process, they gathered up resumes and then made phone interview decisions. Thus far I have only completed the phone interview. They went over work history, where do you see yourself at the company, etc. Overall a positive experience. They seem to have wanted questions at the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Constellation (Baltimore, MD) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Called from an external recruiter first saying there's an opening and asked if interested, then had a phone interview with HM and another phone interview with HR. They decided to bring me to the office after the first phone interview with HM, and the second one with HR was just the routine process. Flied to their office almost a month after the first phone interview. Met seven people in total, each for 45 min. Almost all questions are technically based, especially energy based. People were young and nice. Office was crowded. Recruiter got back to me after three weeks saying they decided to look for some more experienced candidates. It seems they're still interviewing some candidates with PhD, while I only have Master.

    Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation.

    Interview

    The process seemed more challenging than it might have been because it involved people from parent-company in Chicago as well as Baltimore. Phone interview with recruiter followed by face-to-face with hiring manager and key business partner/peer, then third round with multiple senior leaders. It started off very urgent, then seemed to drag. 'Agenda' for all-day interviews with multiple people didn't include job titles or address/parking details (which were the same as the first face-to-face, but still), and interview date was only in subject of email, not body. Initially there was no one to host me for lunch or information/recommendations about what to do for lunch. It seems silly, but how well one is taken care of during recruitment can be interpreted as a reflection of how one will be attended to/thought of when an employee, so those little details matter. Schedule changes came the day before and the day of, when new people were slipped into the line up/times changed. All-in-all, I think the recruitment process reflected the challenges the company still faces in balancing the merger integration demands. A lot of nice people trying hard, and...things are hectic so details fall through the cracks. That said, I'm still sad I won't get to be there to help.
