    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MidAmerican Energy (Des Moines, IA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Went smoothly. And they have focused in a question on how to deal with an attitude problem employee. How do deal with multi-calls dealing with 10500 employees. If multi-tasking is alright with me. Looks like they were busy enough. Some kinds of laid back employees in the office room. However, it is located at almost upper level of RUan Building. So nice!
