    Two rounds of interviews, a phone and in-person. Not very many technical questions. The questions mainly focused on my past projects and how I would handle certain situations. A few technical questions on SQL, ETL, and Big Data.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Entergy.

    Interview

    Screening interview with a recruiter out of the New Orleans office. Interview lasted about 45 minutes and begin with some typical questions. Once rapport was established the interview questions focused on technical type questions that were behaviorally based. The last several questions were scenarios where I had to respond with how I would respond to each situation. One of the last questions asked by the recruiter was how can you tell if your assessments have worked. I responded with that person gets hired or promoted. I did not mean it sarcastically nor flippantly but after that the interview seemed to go downhill the recruiter stopped listening to my responses and tried to rush me along. Ironically I made it to a second interview but a few days before that second interview was to take place the interview was canceled.

    Interview

    I only had a phone interview that went very well. But I truly did not possess the Workforce experience they were looking for. I wanted to comment that the personal note of rejection was really professional and felt genuine.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Entergy (Russellville, AR) in May 2019.

    I applied online and was emailed by the finance manager requesting a phone interview. The interview was on a Thursday afternoon and was around an hour, with 4 behavioral based questions and 1 technical question. When the interview was over the interviewer said she would contact me next Wednesday (5 days). I got an email the next day letting me know I wasn’t selected for the position. The interviewer contacted me Wednesday and let me know that they chose another candidate that had more technical experience with Excel. She commended my interview performance and the experience (both paid and volunteer) on my resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Entergy in April 2019.

    Interview

    I applied in the month on April 2019. Unprofessional process of interview. Recruiter called me after 1.5 months of job posting. I asked her if it is still open or have you decided a final candidate for this position. The response was they are still hiring the candidate. 2 rounds of interview in a gap of 1 month. Then they kept ignoring for another 3 weeks for an onsite interview. Onsite interview went well and was rejected saying they have hired internal candidate. If this was already decided, company should be considerate of candidate's time and efforts.
