    Components Engineering Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Surry, VA).

    Interview

    Applied through their website where HR filters the applicant list down to a manageable number and then sends the list to the respective locations for local management to select. Interview was done over the phone with a panel of two engineers. They asked mainly behavioral questions as well as a little about your resume. Nothing out of the ordinary and very standard procedure.
    Hint- they look for well rounded individuals. Not just someone who can load their resume with technical stuff. They get plenty of that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Cleveland, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call for interview about 5-6 weeks after I submitted the application. The first interview was with three persons through video conference and I were asked in 5-6 categories of questions such as planning, strategies, safety, behaviors, etc. Each question I had to provide situation, example, how I solved it and what the outcomes were. It was around 1-1.5 hours long. Two days later I got another call for face to face interview and site visits. During the visit they showed me their facilities and work plan and asked me my opinions and my strategies specifically for this role and how I would proceed with those projects.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Richmond, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard back from recruiter about 4 weeks later. Interview process was panel interview, and very relaxed for a panel interview. Overall good experience.

    The interview lasted about an hour and a half. I had the opportunity to ask questions, and felt comfortable doing so. The panel was gracious in allowing me enough time to answer all questions.

    I left feeling positive about the potential to work with the team. I expect the job to be a challenge, but working with a good team is essential to an overall positive experience. Keep this in mind when you meet with a panel.

    Be prepared, do your homework on the company. This will provide peace of mind once the interview starts.

    Negotiation

    I never originally asked about salary because it was the job I wanted to do as part of career development. I was surprised to be offered more than expected. The benefits are amazing, almost unheard of benefits.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources.

    Interview

    Interview was conducted panel style with 5 individuals. It was more of a casual conversation about who I was and what I do. No questions were terribly difficult. They were more concerned with cultural fit than expertise.

    Plant Equipment Operator Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Waterford, CT) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR recruiter probably 2-3 weeks after applying online. Normally, the position would require me to take the POSS test, but I had already taken it with another company. They were great about getting the test results so I didn't have to test again. Within a week, I had an interview scheduled on-site. Travel expenses were fully reimbursed.

    The interview itself was fairly routine. It was me and two supervisors who had both started in the same position I was interviewing for. They were both helpful in the interview and asked questions in very simple terms. They also were very enthusiastic about the company and the position in particular. In all, the interview probably lasted around 45 minutes. They gave me a period at the end to ask questions which probably lasted 10-15 minutes. Before I left, they told me that the recruiter would let me know either way within 2-3 weeks.

    I heard back after 2 weeks, well within the time they mentioned. They did extend me a contingent offer for the position, assuming I pass my background check and drug screen. I accepted because of the good benefits and above average base salary.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Richmond, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and submitted resume through online portal. Navigating the page was difficult. They keep a separate student hiring portal from other pro hirings, and they are not easily distinguishable. Other than that, all was well. Had a panel at the interview on the phone and struggled to remember their names. Did not hear back for a month until hearing rejection. I would say the interview was kind of slow in the sense that they moved my application through the process very slowly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Waterford, CT) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process is too mechanical and not effective. The use of Behavioral style questions are only effective when the interviewer is actually engaging in what you are saying. They spent more time taking notes, not listening, therefore missing the clear STAR response. It was obvious that they had no desire to be there and spent to much time asking questions that had no relationship to the job description.
