    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NRG Energy.

    Interview

    My experience was apparently an outlier. I went to the NRG booth at my uni’s career fair, they weren’t advertising for the role but I hit it off with the recruiter. She starred my resume and sent it directly to the lead recruiter in NJ. I didn’t find out until later that I bypassed the “first screening” which is a phone interview. They scheduled me to do 2 interviews on-site. I thought I had bombed my interview because they asked quite a few “prodding” questions and I didn’t really know the answer to some of them. The best advice I can give is to BE HONEST, if you’re lying in your resume or during your interview they’ll find out and that’s how you not get the offer. After that interview the lead recruiter from NJ sends an email about how you’ll be hearing back in a week or so. The next email I received was for a phone call with the recruiter and was extended an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NRG Energy.

    Interview

    The interview - both telephone and onsiste interviews, were simple. It was more to getting to know you. The hiring manager also gave a walk through of the office. However I never heard anything from HR after the onsite interview and I think that very unprofessional/rude - if a candidate is called onsite for an interview, I think it is a minimum courtsey to inform atleast the status of the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at NRG Energy (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straight forward. It was a panel interview with 6 people but 1 person taking the lead and the others chiming in occasionally. I basically just went over my resume with them and answered any questions they had. The interview went great. Was told I would hear something either way in 2 weeks. That was 6 weeks ago. I have emailed once and called once with no response. So if you are looking for common courtesy from HR then you better skip this place. As job candidates we prepare, take off of work, and scrutinize ourselves after the interview. We at least deserve a "Dear John" snail mail, email, something. Totally disrespectful.

    Interview

    Most pathetic HR team. They mailed me in evening for interview which was scheduled for same day afternoon. They require local candidate from Chicago and still they mailed me for interview even though I stay in NJ. Why would you interview a person who is not local in first place. Horrible experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NRG Energy (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had a 2 1/2 hour interview with four different people, 30 minutes each. The first was with the HR recruiter who was very nice and asked me typical behavioral questions about project management. The next person worked in a team that was looking for the intern and they asked me about my interests and asked me case questions related to the problems the team was facing. The last two people talked about what they did in the team and what the intern would be doing. The interview overall wasn't that bad. It just took a long time to hear a response back. It turns out the company wasn't going through with the internship anymore.

    Bad HR, makes you wonder how are these people supposed to have people skills!
    -Contacted by an HR through a common connection and was told my profile "is a peft match for the role" and that we should have a phone call.
    -I follow up, no answer. I follow up again, and again, and again. After three weeks, HR returns to me saying they decided my background is "a bit off" without an apology
