    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newport, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DTE Energy (Newport, MI).

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 people, including HR. They used the STAR method. Situation, Task, Action, Results. It was a mass hiring at my time, where 20+ people were hired and over 100 made the first cut. But this is not typical so it will be a different process for everyone.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Started with the online personality quiz and then got a call to set up an in person interview. I was interviewed by 3 people that are part of the group I would be joining. About half the interview was in the STAR format and are usual interview questions. The other half of the interview was general discussion regarding prior work experience and about the group I would be joining and my prior knowledge of group. In just under 3 weeks I received an offer and went through the background check and drug test.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Already had taken the standard DTE pre-assessment, so received an email offering me different interview dates. Was told to prepare a very specific PowerPoint presentation, with very exacting guidelines. Attended interview expecting to give a presentation, but interview consisted of somewhat general questions using the STAR technique. The presentation (which took days to design/refine) was given a one-minute cursory review. I thought the interview would be centered on it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI) in December 2019.

    Interview

    3-person panel, very basic questions...panel members barely engaged in the process. Very little enthusiasm. Used STAR as a crutch in the process.

    Associate Scientist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DTE Energy (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back 4.5 weeks later from HR wanting me to take an online assessment. I passed the assessment and then was scheduled for an interview a few weeks later. The in person interview was a 4 person panel and 90% of the questions were using the STAR method. Not only will they ask you questions in the STAR method but they will ask follow up questions to your experiences and really grill you on your thought processes. Overall DTE really needs to speed up their hiring process - they have the potential to miss out on a lot of great candidates. It took over 3 weeks to get a rejection letter from the company. At the end of the day I did not receive an offer, but overall the panel was nice and challenging.
