    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.

    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.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at E.ON.

    Interview

    Standard submission of CV and cover letter, then invited to do a verbal reasoning and maths test. If successful, they then ask you to download an app called Skyrise City, in which there are various logic games. Some of them can be frustrating, but actually strangely addictive. One you had to blow up balloons and there was others involving memory and reaction times. Seemed a bit pointless but was actually more fun than most applications I've done.

    Interview

    The application process was the most unprofessional and uncomfortable recruiting experience I have had so far!

    All the emails I have received included grammatical errors, a cell phone continuously vibrated during one of the interviews and one of the interviewers seemed to almost be falling asleep during the interview whereby conveying that she was super bored by and uninterested in the interview. (Even if I gave the lamest replies she had ever heard, could her behaviour be any less respectful?!) She also did not even manage to have some sort of eye contact.

    The interviewers stressed that the working environment was great at Econ and that they had a great team spirit. By that statement, the interviewers seemed to ridicule themselves because they were the most unpleasant interviewers I have ever had and they were also not very friendly towards each other, addressing each other using their last names.

    Moreover, the interviewers promised a quick decision after the last interview. They also failed to inform me in time. I do understand that sometimes unforeseeable events prolong the decision-making process. However, recruiters should also take this into consideration and if it takes way longer than previously assured, it is very disrespectful towards the applicant. The interviewers also stressed that feedback was very important at Econ. Nevertheless, they just sent a standard rejection email and completely failed to give any feedback after offering it in the email. They only said that a skill not mentioned in the job advertisement was the most important skill for the job and the determining factor for another candidate. This skill was, however, not even mentioned in the job advertisement. Moreover, this does not seem to be true because the job advertisement is still online months after the last interview. Since they could not give me any helpful/honest feedback, I think they should not be offering feedback and if the other candidate's skill was really the most important skill, it should definitely be included in the job advertisement! Otherwise, it is just a waste of the candidate's time and effort. (If they waste their own time and resources, it is up to them but wasting a candidate's time and effort, is just disrespectful.)

    In conclusion, I do not see any reason for working at ECON if one could also work at MBB or other top consultancies. They have the better locations, better projects and most importantly, the company culture and the team spirit are much more attractive.

    After four months and several rounds of interviews, the recruiters have still not managed to fill the open position. Therefore, it gives the impression that they are not only very unprofessional but also very ineffective. Since the case study was super easy, it does not even make sense to take part in a case interview at Econ in order to prepare for case interviews at better companies. Taking part in the interviews arc ECON definitely felt like a waste of time and effort.

    Interview Questions

    • Too personal questions (especially about weaknesses and the most impactful professional failure). So it's definitely helpful to prepare for that.   Answer Question
