    Strategy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Genscape.

    Interview

    The worst I've ever met. Senior talent acquisition specialist contacted me via email to schedule a phone interview. I replied with a suggested time and a follow up email the next day, but never got response. Very unprofessional.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Genscape in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interview did not occur, first call with HR she blew me off and didn't respond to emails after scheduling in advance. Was looking forward to it and didn't see this happening to anyone else, but it is rude regardless.

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Genscape (Louisville, KY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was extremely positive at Genscape. Though the process was about two months, I was always in touch with the recruiter and knew where I stood. There were multiple hurdles in the process.
    1. Application
    2. Phone Interview
    3. Personality Assessment
    4. Applicant Exercise (Skill Assessment)
    5. On Site 1:1 Interview
    This is where I was let go, but the recruiter told me if I remember correctly there would be two more interviews and then a final decision.

    The HR department was very courteous and personable the whole way through. Even though I did not get the role they made the process as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Also they did a great job promoting Genscape’s benefits and culture. Sounds like a great place would highly recommend for others to apply.

    Summer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    This interview process was fairly long comparing to other companies. I have done two phone interviews so far, one was with the human resources department, which was more of a screening tool that included typical phone interview questions. The second was about month after the first one, and it was with the hiring manger. the questions of this interview were more related to the job descriptions.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed at a lot of places this fall, and Genscape was by FAR the most pleasant. The interview consisted of 3 stages: 1) HR phone interview, 2) Phone interview with engineering lead, 3) Onsite interview with Director of Operations, Engineering Team, and HR. The entire process took about 30 days, but note that Thanksgiving fell right in the middle of the process (it didn't feel dragged out whatsoever).

    I applied online and heard back shortly after. I had a behavioral phone interview with the Director of Talent Management where I was asked about my experience and expectations, they were very pleasant and friendly. The second interview was an hour long with the lead engineer of the team I was applying for. I was asked about my previous experience and details of previous projects/positions I've had. Questions were about technical topics but there were no whiteboard coding/algorithms/data structures, they really seemed focused on finding someone with good experience and above all else, a passion for software with a good attitude. He then told me about the projects they are working on, culture, etc. It was a really enjoyable conversation. About 1 week later I was invited for an onsite interview at the Boston office where I had some more behavioral interviews and had a video conference with the rest of the engineering team which was great, I was able to learn more about the rest of the team and at the end I was made a verbal offer. For the visit, flight and one night at a hotel was provided (which was very nice!). The following week I received my firm offer, which I gladly accepted.

    Overall it was a great interview experience. HR was very responsive and helpful with all the questions I had, as well as determining the appropriate offer in a collaborative way. They didn't play "games" like I had experienced with other companies, which I greatly appreciated. Thanks so much to HR! Excited to begin!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very efficient and everyone was easy to talk to. I don't remember everything but they had good questions about the power markets and my personality. There was an initial phone screen with HR, then the different team members interviewed me during an in person interview. They were timely in getting back to me.

    Senior Power Market Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of three phases

    1 - Telephone interview with HR
    2 - Telephone interview with team manager
    3 - On site interview with 5/6 people

    Overall experience was very positive, the whole interview process was very quick and was over in about a week. After the face to face interviews I was left in the dark for about two weeks before finding out that I had been unsuccessful. I was quite surprised and disappointed by this as I felt the entire process had been very positive and I was very excited about the opportunity!

    The first interview was fairly standard resume walk through with a HR representative. The second interview was a 30 minute phone call with a hiring manager. This interview was more difficult with a significant focus on interest in the energy markets and whether or not I would be comfortable in a client facing position due to my more technical background.

    On site interview consisted of 5 or 6 30 minute conversations with various team members. Questions ranged from tell me about your background to what do you know about the energy markets and also some behavioral questions.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Contacted via email by HR, phone interview with HR and in-person interview with 2 heads of the marketing department. Got to see the Boston office, which was pretty new and bustling. The two interviewers were difficult to read and mostly just fired off questions, but pleasant enough.
