    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Exelon Generation (Ontario, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very simple, it consisted of first taking the BMST and POSS test then if you were recommended they offered you an interview. They asked me to run through my resume, then proceeded to give me scenarios in which I responded from my personal history.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Exelon Generation.

    Interview

    Job interview was 100 percent behavior based with NO questions regarding the actual job or position I applied for. At the end when I was asked if I had any questions, I asked for job duty clarifications. Very poorly written job description (vague) and the interview was scattered and all over the place. It felt and looked like three monkeys trying to handle a football!? I WAS NOT offered the job.

    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kennett Square, PA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Exelon Generation (Kennett Square, PA).

    Interview

    The interview process is very straight forward, and all questions are behavioral. Before beginning questions, they will tell you exactly the format you should use for your answers- STAR (situation, task, action, result). The notes they take while interviewing you have boxes for each of these items, so it is important to be clear for each of them.

    Equipment Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Byron, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon Generation (Byron, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter who talked to me about what I was looking for and went over some of their available positions. After hearing that I wanted to be hands-on he suggested I think about the equipment operator role. I was then emailed by the recruitment team to go to Warrenville, IL and take the POSS and BMST exams. I heard back the next day that I did very well on the exams and they wanted to move onto the next stage. I choose my top three locations and was interviewed at the plant in Byron, IL. I was interviewed by 3 people panel style. They only had five questions for me and all pertained to teamwork and safety. I got a verbal offer the next day and two of my interviewers emailed me, congratulating me. Right now, I'm in the process of deciding if I want to accept my offer. I was given the contact info of one of their current equipment operators so that I could get more of a feel the position and what it entails. Overall, the people were very nice and super friendly. I really appreciated the feedback I got from the people in Byron and if I do accept it will be mostly because I want to work with people like them.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Exelon Generation in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two interviews - one 30 minute phone screening with a recruiter followed by a 60 minute in-person interview with the hiring manager on-site at the facility.

    Interviews were fine - the phone screening was a typical recruiter screening. The in-person consisted of a mix of behavioral questions and discussion of my experience relative to the position. A lot of back and forth re: the job responsibilities and my relevant experience.

    I was told at the time of my in-person interview that I would be advancing in the interview process, which would include phone interviews with the regional communications director and the VP of marketing. I was also told by the hiring manager that I would hear back from her within the next few days (interview took place on a Thursday - was told to expect an update no later than Monday) to confirm my next round of interviews. However, two weeks passed with no updates.

    Eventually I was told by the recruiter over email that they'd decided to move forward with other candidates, with no other feedback provided. This left me puzzled, disappointed and curious about what happened to have changed their minds.
