    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, MI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Consumers Energy (Oakland, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    on-line, maybe phone call from placement specialist, or maybe nothing at all, if you get an interview 50% time it's already been determined who and it's just a formality. I have applied for many positions, some I was over qualified for, and never even received the thanks, but no-thanks form letter

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Consumers Energy (Lansing, MI).

    Interview

    Interviewers had to read from a script. T h ey weren't allowed to ask their own questions. Then they wrote down word for word my response. Very robotic and nonconversational. Took 6 weeks to start job so not for a person who needs to start quickly.

    Call Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Consumers Energy (Grand Rapids, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Hiring process took about 3/4 weeks from the time I applied. The first thing that they do is call you unannounced for a phone interview, if you do well enough for that they pass you along to the next process which is an in person interview with a panel of 3 or 4 people. The interview was pretty laid back and was a conversation

    Plant Engineering Co-op Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Consumers Energy (Essexville, MI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a panel of 4 individuals. Asked a series of questions that related mostly to leadership traits, prioritization and organizational skills, personal achievements and so on. It was not to far in depth when it comes to technical skills as the position is for a Co-op, but I would expect the engineering position interview would be substantially more challenging.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an instance where there was a conflict with a co-worker and how was the situation resolved and the following outcome.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate, I was happy to take the job at the offered pay
