    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied back in January, and received an email inquiry in early April asking about my interest in a compensation HR internship. I indicated interest and had a conference call appointment with compensation managers. I did receive a nice interview prep document to prepare for the interview. One week later, I received a phone call with an offer from Exelon's Business Services for the internship. I followed with more questions and had a good conversation with one of the compensation directors.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through graduate school on-campus recruiting. There was a screening round on-campus, with a round of three interviews at the office a few weeks later.

    The screening round focused on relevant work experience and "why did you apply with us" type questions. In the final round, more in-depth behavioral interview questions were included as well. However, all of the interviews were very conversational, and actually fairly enjoyable.

    Also, there were surprisingly few technical finance questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Simple, friendly, asked generic STAR questions and pretty much told what they were looking for in your response before they asked the question so wasn't too difficult. We talked a lot about past experiences and they help place you into a program that best fits with your career goals and experience.

    Nuclear Equipment Operator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Started off with casual conversation, then a quick glance at my resume then went off to behavioral questions. They were a bit less conventional than typical questions. Only bad thing I would say is that I applied to several of these position for different locations but they did not schedule me for the earliest start date first so when I was already working on the pathway for one, I could not be considered for one that started sooner.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Tell me of a time when you saw a safety concern and how did you react?
      Q: Tell me of a time when you had to instruct others?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I initially applied through my university and had a phone interview within a week. I was then invited to the office for a multiple round interview. I met with four different employees that each had a completely different role. Relatively easy interview. I got zero feedback following the interview which was very agitating.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Two rounds of phone interview. First was with the recruiter, basic general questions. Second with the team managers (2), more like they introduced the team and what is the main duties of the internship. They asked if I am comfortable to carry out the duties. I like the interview because it was not intimidating and more like a conversation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Exelon (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Was asked to come back for 3 interviews. Although the process was long, it was totally worth it and I was kept in the loop on the process the entire time. At no point in time was I concerned that I didn't know what the next step would be or how soon I would hear back from my recruiter. Overall great experience and worth the wait.
