    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Entergy Nuclear.

    Interview

    I applied through their online career site. After about a week or so, I received a call from a hiring manager. He asked about my graduation date, and said that they were looking for a candidate that could start a couple months before I graduate. He asked me a few standard behavioral questions anyway. He mentioned that if I was graduating in time that he would bring me in for an in person interview, but he would keep me in mind if the position wasn't filled.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Entergy Nuclear (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    They contacted me to set-up my travel to their location. I drove to the location, processed through security, and was led to the interview room. Not all parties were available, so the interview went forward with only 2 interviewers. Only a few questions were related to the specific job. Other questions appeared to be set-up to judge my ability to deal with people.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if I would have any issues with being the boss of someone who was presently a co worker.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Entergy Nuclear.

    Interview

    The hiring process at a nuclear plant is far more intensive than most people would be used to. There are lengthy security and reference checks, as well as tons of training. The interview itself is typicall "behavior based" questions like: "tell me about a time when you saw a safety issue and how you handled it?"

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you saw a process not being followed and you had to "coach up" to a high level person. (Meaning, you saw an issue and had to report it to management, who had no noticed, or changed the situation yet)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Entergy Nuclear (Jackson, MS) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied in June 2014 and was contacted in less than two weeks. Scheduled an interview at the headquarters in Jackson, MS with the Director of Nuclear Fuels two weeks after I was called. They payed for all travel expenses, including food and a rental car. The interview was with the Director as well as two other engineers. The interview was behavioral and there was not a lot of technical questions asked. They showed me around the office and introduced me to everyone who I potentially would have been working with. The four of us went to lunch afterwards. It was a pretty good experience. I was notified 10 days later I did not get the job.
