    Rating Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EPCOR (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First I received a brief phone interview with their HR that lasted about 30 min. Just typical questions. They continued to have an interest in myself so about a week 1/2 later they scheduled a face to face with the rating manager. I ended up getting interviewed by her and two other people on the team, which was fine. They again liked me and wanted me to come in for a second face to face with the team leader. The problems occurred when they wanted to give me an offer. The whole process was backwards - they even sent my CURRENT employer a background check form which scared the crap out of them. FINALLY they ended up rescinding the offer because of a time conflict they failed to communicate - so again it was all backwards and they messed up my relationship with my current company because of it. I highly suggest you request more information up front, instead of going through the background check and drug screen. otherwise you are wasting your time.. not to mention the whole process took FOREVER. They dragged out the whole thing, lied about the interview, was very indiscreet with my current employer, and for nothing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EPCOR.

    Interview

    Behaviour based interview. New process to include more in depth review of individual skills. The overall feel of the interview was easy and the ability to interact with the interview team is much better than just being asked questions. A great way to ensure that you are getting the best individual for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at EPCOR (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Poor "Technical Assessment" questions, there was no chronological order and the step by step guide was all over the place. The person they had sit with me to help was superficial and didn't seem to know what she was doing when I asked for guidance.

    Interview

    There are two rounds of interviews. First round is telephone-based interview. It has simply questions regarding yourself and the company. Do some research on the company website and you should nail it without any problem. Second round is face-to-face interview. It contains a variety of questions ranging from water treatment technologies to personal skills.

    Engineer-In-Training Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EPCOR (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening to ask about why should we hire you. Called in for an in person interview (same week as phone screening) which lasted an hour. 6 technical questions related to the position so I guess technical portion would depend on the type of job you are applying. 4 general behavioural questions. There were 3 interviewers and no HR. The department manager was a very rude person.

    Got selected for reference check (3 references) after interview. All the references said good stuff but the department manager at EPCOR wanted a direct supervisor reference. Since I was a recent grad, I could provide only 1 direct supervisor reference from internship and remaining references were from co-workers. I was rejected because I had only 1 direct supervisor reference. My referencers mentioned that the guy was extremely rude on phone and un-professional. He had set time to talk at 9:00 am but called at 10:00 am and didn't even apologize. Most of the people work till 5:00 pm and he also called some of my references after 5 pm. The call he made to references lasted about 50 minutes. He also asked some questions which he can't legally ask (e.g racial discrimination).
