    Finance and Accounting Strategic Training Program (FAST) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lawrence, KS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kansas City Power & Light Company (Lawrence, KS) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a brief interview on-campus with a representative from KCP&L. The interview was very informal and mostly just about my experiences. There were very little behavioral questions.

    I received three emails a few days following my interview, all around 2:30 am. The first two were identical but one was from a recruiter and the second was from a general email. Both explained that they were moving forward with the hiring process and I was not selected. The second email came exactly one minute later and simply recalled the previous message.

    Confused as to my status, I emailed asking for clarification. I never received a reply and I have heard nothing further from the company.

    I understand if I was not a good fit, but the absence of professionalism and the absurd lack of communication through the process has really left a bad taste in my mouth. I hope that all future candidates are treated with more respect.

    Regulatory Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kansas City Power & Light Company (Kansas City, MO) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I had several face-to-face meetings for a series of different jobs. Half-way through one interview someone would say that I was a better fit in someone else's group so we would reschedule another meeting, This happened twice.

    I finally got an offer and I accepted since I didn't have any other offers at the time. That was a mistake.

    When I showed up for my first day, THE COMPANY FORGOT I WAS HIRED! There was no one ready to show me to a desk, I had no supervisor present, no assignment, nothing. After two hours waiting in HR a VP came by and escorted me to an empty cube.

    Over the next ten years at KCP&L, I had co-workers kick me under a table because they thought I was taking too long to talk with the CFO, supervisors giving me chapter assignments from Christian self-help books because of the gayness i suffer from, had Directors sell their wife's pyramid scheme cosmetics to my female direct reports, and I could go on and on.

    The fouled up interview process was exactly how fouled up the company is.
