    Customer Service Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Energy (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This was the worst interview I have ever been on. Total lack of professionlism, felt more like a interrogation than an interview. The two managers who were conducting the interview had zero personality, never smiled, were more concerned about skills I didn't have than what I could do for the company. I would avoid this company like the plague!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Direct Energy (Houston, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was called in to interview for an open Paralegal position and after going through a phone interview with HR, was contacted for an in person interview. I was scheduled to interview with 3 people on the team and right from the beginning there was trouble. The first person that I interviewed with could not tell me exactly what the role was and the duties that were to be performed. She did not seem to be able to concentrate on the interview and had no questions prepared. The second person that I interviewed with was continuously looking at their phone and basically described the role as what ever the company needed done at the time. The last person I met with was just distracted and continued to talk on about the benefits and what the team was doing and did not give a chance for me to say anything at all.

    Corporate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Energy.

    Interview

    The interview process went from decent to bad. I was contacted by a person in HR by email about a month after applying for the job online. The first interview was a phone interview with the hiring manager. I passed this round and made it on to the first in person interview where I met a few people on the team and the hiring manager. I passed this round and made it on to the final interview to meet some of the higher ups. I honestly felt like I did a great job and spent a great deal of time preparing, as I really wanted this job. Each communication up until this point had been between 1-2 weeks apart, and overall this process took about 1.5 months. After the final round interview, I sent my thank you notes and felt good about my chances. I ended up hearing NOTHING for 5 weeks despite following up weekly. It's pathetic to not get back to a candidate who has invested so much time in your company and made arrangements to miss work for interviews several times. Everyone on this site is correct that Direct Energy has no respect or value for its job candidates. I did not appreciate having to sit and wait nervously for so long. Finally after 5 weeks I was told the job went to someone else.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Energy (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed with 4 people in one day, each meeting was scheduled for 30 min, total of 2hrs. I met the manager, 2 teammates and 1 senior manager. Was surprised to take a quick 2 short answer quiz. Did not get the job, but seemed like a good place to work for. Open office environment. I never heard back although. It would be nice to at least be advised once I'm no longer being considered for the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Direct Energy (Houston, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was super basic. The recruiter wrote down almost everything i said and took up about 4 pages of notes in her book. No technical questions whatsoever but know how to answer behavioral questions in depth because they will ask every detail into you answer.
