    Engineering Technologist I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plainfield, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Plainfield, IN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Quick "Do not reply" email with location, time and names of interviewers. Interviewed by 3 people in the department from all over the state. Each person asked 2 HR questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very bland, what would/did you do in this situation(s). Give an example of _________.

      They were simple enough questions, however thinking of 6 similar scenarios off the top of my head was not as easy as it sounds.

      It would have been better for myself to visually see the question, instead of them read it out loud to me. I process things through visuals and not hearing generally. I had to ask them a few times to repeat the question, as they were often so long you forgot what the first part entailed. The hardest part was trying to think of the scenarios asap.

      My 6 questions only lasted 15 min.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Charlotte, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewers made me really comfortable, which could be a good or a bad thing. A good thing if you tend to get nervous, but you can get the impression that you did more well than you actually did.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview

    The company conducts panel interviews, usually the hiring manager, a nonunion employee and an HR business partner. They take turns asking questions and everyone takes notes on your response. During most of the interview, the panel does not give eye contact since they will either be writing or typing.

    IT Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Charlotte, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview day lasted from 830am-1230pm. You start out in a conference room with other people being interviewed and some current IT Associates and IT Managers. Half of the people being interviewed will go to their certain rooms at about 9 while the other half sit in the conference room and then get a tour around one of the floors. While sitting there it's just holding a conversation with everyone in the room and talking. It was not hard at all just normal talking. After about an hour of that, the second group goes to be interviewed while the ones that were interviewed hangout in conference room and talk. There are two people that interview you and nothing real technical, everything is behavioral. After the interview, everyone even the ones giving the interview, meet in a conference room to have a catered lunch. This is where the people who you haven't talked to yet, you will have a chance to talk to. Very formal and fun time while having lunch and learning about them and the company. I put I did not receive offer because I have not got that far yet. They take about a week or 2 to get back to you.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview

    Applied for position and was immediately followed up with a recruiter. They wanted a copy of my transcript which I was happy to give. A week went by and I contacted my recruiter and received no response. After a month and many more failed attempts to get in touch with the recruiter I had forgotten about the position. Fast forward 4 months later and I am just now receiving a "thanks, but no thanks" email.
