    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duquesne Light (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Panel interview with 3 Managers and an HR rep. Scripted questions that were asked in a round robin fashion. There was a "speed round" of questioning -- 4 questions that you were given a short span of time (minutes) to respond. The whole process took 45 minutes. Received email 3 days later that I was not selected for the role. No reason given. Disappointed as from all accounts this is a stable work environment.

    Standard 30 minute phones screen. Cold Fusion developers are being transitioned to .NET with applications.

DLC is another large company that has rebranded with Scrum terms and claim Agile(tm) yet remain in the traditional PMI mentality.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duquesne Light (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by in person interview. Not helpful at all with assisting in making travel arrangements or facilitating accommodations. Personalities seemed to switch on a dime during interview, depending who was in the room at the time.
    Also don't expect to get reimbursed for interview expenses, as they promise you. You will fill out and submit forms to HR and AP, then will either be given the run around or flat out have communications ignored.
