    Contracts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview

    HR/recruiting was good and timely regarding communication. I was told I'd interview with the hiring manager but walked into a room of 3 total people. The interview was 3 parts. Talk about yourself, answer 9 predetermined questions, and then ask any questions. Everyone was very nice. I was told they'd be interviewing a lot of people, which is what I read for other interviews on this site about the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke Energy (Clemson, SC) in September 2010.

    Interview

    The interview didn't take very long as it was an on campus interview at Clemson University. The interview went well and I appeared to connect to the interviewer and the appeared to like my answers. However, Duke Energy was very slow in the hiring process and I did not hear back for a couple months after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview

    Takes forever to hear anything, but well worth the wait I'm sure. Took probably 6 weeks to get an email to go for the MASS testing. Study for this one, you're gonna need it. Also, study wiring diagrams and get good at tracing them quickly. The physical abilities testing came afterwards, if you can wipe your own butt you can pass this portion of the test. After that I was close to 2 months before hearing anything on the interview. Interview was very straight forward with an emphasis on safety.
