There is also an initial character-trait testing to discover more about how your personality will interact and/or where best you would fit in the organization. Later in the process, a background check or FBI check will be done, depending on the job applied for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There is an online assessment that must be completed and passed, upon application. The online assessment takes about an hour to complete. If you 'pass' it, you move forward in the interview process. If you don't, then you must wait 365 days to re-apply and re-take the assessment. I passed the assessment. It was mostly a personality based type of test.

    After passing the assessment, I received a call from HR to schedule an in person interview.

    It was an extremely formal interview process based on STARS method. I was told I'd be meeting with one person but then there were three others in the room. All very formal and all feverishly scribbling notes on my responses. There wasn't too much give and take. It wasn't a conversational type of interview. Very black and white. It felt very, very cold.

    They asked me a total of about 6-7 questions plus follow-ups to those questions. I was initially told there would only be three questions. I usually shine at interviews and am at ease. Not at this one. It literally felt like an interrogation. The interviewers were nice, but it felt like they were trying so hard to fit to a standard, that they couldn't even relax and converse.

    I can't recall if it was before or after the interview when HR asked about my salary requirement. But it was fairly late in the process. I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't do that well at the interview, it was my worst interview ever, but I also can't help but wonder if the salary requirement played a big part too. I think salary requirement questions should be asked upfront, especially before someone goes through an hour long assessment.

    Another note, HR was really aloof during the whole process. I only dealt with one person but this person was not very receptive and did not return a phone call when I called with a question before going in to interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Basically every generic "describe a time when" and "how did you handle it" and "what were the results" question out there. They have a list of dozens of these questions they could ask you and they choose which ones to ask. It's hard to prepare because although these questions are generic, you never know which ones they're going to ask.   Answer Question
