    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at E.ON in October 2015.

    Interview

    Got a phone interview after 2 days since I submitted application online. The questions were not hard, basically some behavior questions or let you introduce yourself and background. After this, the recruiter said she would talk to her manager and maybe give me a online test about sql. But after 2 days, they said they need person that can start working immediately, which I am not qualified for. But they said I can contact them if there are position available next summer.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at E.ON.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview screening with an HR associate in Texas, then an in person interview with the hiring manager in San Francisco.
    The role was not well-defined prior to the interview, and the criteria for evaluation was unclear. The interview was brief and unstructured.

    Interview Questions

    • No question was particularly difficult, however the entire process was vague given the lack of expectation setting.
      White-boarding was required to describe the layout and communication of a solar plant. Low level communication, then DC strings, combiners, inverters, central SCADA, etc. Analytical skills were tested by listing how many performance limiting factors could be named, and how to account for these factors in a real-time performance model.

    Smart Meter Installer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Peterborough, England (UK)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at E.ON (Peterborough, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview for this role is quite intense, probably a little more involved than it needs to be for this level of employment. It lasts approximately three hours.

    The first part is a role play where you're given a profile to read and study for fifteen minutes then you go into the role play. You're the E.ON man and you're conducting a standard visit and installation at a customers address, straight forward stuff.

    Following the role play you go into a practical exercise which involves detaching an old style meter and re-wiring a new style meter, nothing too technical but the assessor fully inspects and checks your work, you are not told if you passed or failed.

    Finally you go into a two panel interview and asked eight questions, four competency based and four scenario based questions, again, nothing too difficult but you need to draw on your previous experiences and use the STAR technique in order to be successful.

    The whole process from initial application, assessment to start date took approximately twelve weeks, I found this a little slow as I was keen to get back into work following redundancy, other than the timescale I found the process to be interesting and informative.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you've had to challenge someone for not following protocol or breaking a rule you know should be adhered to?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, there is a standard pay rate which is scaleable as you gain your electricity and gas qualifications which they provide in their academy.
