    Senior Environmental Compliance Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakmont, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Oakmont, PA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very formal interview process consisting of a panel of 3 people asking generic, canned interview questions that are irrelevant of a candidates skill set. No open dialogue or opportunity to discuss past experience or abilities that translate into an individual's capabilities, but rather, a one hour bombardment of "what would you do in this scenario" style questions. Staff was unprofessional, did not offer business cards, failed to provide necessary details prior to the interview (the location doesn't match the mailing address and the facility has multiple entrances). After interview, I was awkwardly asked to, on the spot, draft a handwritten response letter to an agency for an imaginary environmental reporting scenario.

    All 3 of my thank you letters were returned could not locate sender - as no one seemed to have business cards on hand, I sent the letters to the (inaccurate) interview location address that was provided.

    Customer Project Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Norfolk, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    There was a very easy initial phone screening, which then lead to a very intimidating panel type interview. There were 3 staff members with differant names than that were confirmed in my interview confirmation email. That went around the room and asked a series of questions, there was little eye contact and continuous writing. Like they were copying down everythign I said, seriously why not just record it. I felt very strong walking into the situtation but after the first 5 minutes it felt more like and interigation and was a complete disaster, after about 10 questions I just wanted to get the hell out of there. Instead I was taken to another conferance room to wait to aprox 20 minutes then met with 2 additional managers. This interview had a completely differant feel, it was relaxed and comfortable we were able to have a conversation and really communicate with one another.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Richmond, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I got a call on a Friday from HR asking me to come in for an interview that next Wednesday, so I didn't have much time to prepare. I spent the whole weekend studying questions and material so I would feel confident. The interview process was somewhat intimidating and tough, but the panel of interviewers seemed very nice overall. I interviewed in December and never heard anything back, so that is a little frustrating because I put in a lot of effort preparing.

    Reactor Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waterford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dominion Resources (Waterford, CT) in May 2012.

    Interview

    My experince consists of a Master degree in radiological science, senior reactor operators license and five years in a commercial nuclear power plant experience. I worked at the research reactor for seven years and as a nonlicensed plant equipment operator for five years.

    I started with Domion in 2007 and have recently been promoted to obtain a reactor operators license. The license candidates were chosen by both an interview and a written exam. I performed well on both an have been made an offer.

    While my background make me a Direct Senior Reactor operator candidate I choose to become a reactor operator because of the learning curve associated with being an SRO. Work control/ tagging is a tremndous responsibility and I have decided to get my RO license then work on work control skills. Seeing the mistakes made by some Direct SRO's has cause me to question their ability, and demonstrates the importance of knowing your plant.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dominion Resources in July 2008.

    Interview

    First a phone interview with HR rep. asking about basic purchasing experience, then a LONG face to face panel interview (over 3 hours) getting into detail about specific procurement techniques and experiences plus a written test! Then a 1:1 interview with a manager which was pretty basic.

    After 3 weeks, a tentative offer was made... then I had to pass a drug test and background check. For the background check, they verified every detail of my resume. This took two weeks before I was given a firm, final offer.
