    Contracts Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Energy Future Holdings (Dallas, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very fast process. Single interview with my possible supervisor and his manager. I noticed that many people working there were contract workers and remained that way for years. I came in as a contractor and it did not seem hopeful with regards to going perm and getting benefits.

    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Energy Future Holdings (Plano, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    We were very many people being interviewed for the open positions. The interviewers dwelt a lot on my past experience trying to understand my background and the strengths I would be bringing to the job. They also gave me different behavioral scenarios asking how I would react in each instance. There was also an instance where I had to make a presentation before a panel. It was all handled very professionally. The most challenging part was an Excel test that came as a total surprise to most of us.

    Interview Questions

    • What strengths will you bring to the job? What do you know about this company?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was not difficult as I had imagined it would be. They made me an offer which was lower than I had expected and I countered their offer. They came back to me almost immediately saying there was not wiggle room, but I declined to take the job after considering the low pay and my schedule.

    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Energy Future Holdings (Irving, TX) in April 2010.

    Interview

    TXU has a reputation for being a revolving door for accountants and other business professionals. I ignored this knowledge and accepted an interview with a managing accountant there. Because of the revolving door attitude, I found out during the interview that everyone has some weird, non-standard title which gives the impression they are rising through the labyrinth of ranks at the company. The rest of the interview was downhill from there are the "managing" accountant was a dour-faced person with no sense of humor or likeability. If you are a business professional, stay away from this company. If you're interested in the energy industry, there are plenty of better local organizations to join in oil & natural gas.

    he user can also determine whether all possible models are estimated and compared (full enumeration) instead of using the default stepwise algorithm. The stepwise algorithm has been shown to have good performance characteristics, and is much less computationally intensive, however, it is not guranteed to find the best single model. Estimating all possible ARIMA models will find the single best model, but with a significantly greater runtime. If full enumeration is selected, the user can place some limits on the space searched by setting the maximum allowed order of the model. In add

I heard back in less than two weeks with a good offer and accepted.

    Risk Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Energy Future Holdings.

    Interview

    I heard back an hour after I submitted my online application. The interview process was very disorganized. It took them thirty minutes past the official appointment to send someone down to get me. Two repetitive interviews, an outrageously expensive lunch, a written reasoning test, and a very hard Excel test took five hours, and then I was given an exit tour. They called me the next day with an offer.
