    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at JEA in November 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter and was asked to sit for an in-person interview. After a couple of days the interview was canceled due to 'Everyone took off that day'.

    Haven't heard back yet but have been assured that they will eventually get around to it.

    Corporate Applications Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at JEA (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Easy process, mostly behavioral style questions. I would say if you apply expect to be entering a really slow company. Nothing is fast pace, and they give you all the work if you are a Co-Op / Contractor.

    Declined to Answer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JEA (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    The whole thing was a horrible joke, and the joke was one me. They first contacted me about salary requirements. Then they wanted a copy of my college transcript from 20 years earlier. No telephone screening or anything. They asked me to come in (from out of state) as a final candidate and offered only two possible interview timeslots. I opted for 8 am. No one was there to meet me on time. They brought me up late (starting late) and ended punctually. The questions were written in advance and one could not ask questions.

    In the end, it was apparent that they were going through the obligatory motions but were promoting from within.

    Corporate Office Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JEA.

    Interview

    The entire process took 3 months from start to finish. The process is painfully slow. After applying if you meet the requirements you are schedule to take an exam, that you must pay for. Once a passing score is made you are scheduled for an in-person interview. The interview is scored and you have to make a passing score as well, once that is done you are placed on an "eligibility list". Questions asked at the interview range from education, computer software expertise, work history & hypothetical questions pertaining to possible incidents that could happen in the position & how you would handle it.

    Interview

    Too many steps for a position that does not pay that much. I understand that they are a public company, but it took over one and a half month of tests, interviews, etc to finally get an response

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JEA (Jackson, TN) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Group interview. Very stuffy. I was actually over qualified but felt they were just going through the process but already had a candidate in mind. Very uncomfortable interview process. Knew I was not a good fit immediately.

    easy, but in person. Sat with a panel impressed them by answering some questiones. Got a ob offer few days later. Great job but limited growth opportunity. People are lazy money gets wasted big time. Engineers are overlooked. They are taken advantage of.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at JEA in August 2013.

    Interview

    The interview questions are fairly simplistic and the interview team seems to do all of the talking. If you get through the first step, plan on an eight hour session with the physiologist. Even with a good interview, it generally comes down to who you know. Good luck.

    Co-Op Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at JEA (Jacksonville, FL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    It was one of the easier interviews I have had. Mainly standard questions, no real surprises. Some situational questions about past work environments or projects. I interviewed with multiple people and at least three of them read me questions directly off the sheet and didn't take notes. I didn't get the feeling they were very experienced interviewing candidates and it made me feel more at ease. Know your resume, and you should do fine.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. Tell me about a past project. Etc   Answer Question
