I interviewed at NRG Energy

Interview

This was several years ago, but there were several back to back interviews - 4 in one day. I recall requests for me to draw excel functions on a whiteboard, recite formulas from memory, use those formulas to solve problems, and give my perspective on the renewables industry. Felt like a university exam.

I applied online. I interviewed at NRG Energy in Jul 2022

Interview

HR left a voicemail for me at 6:30pm to call them back about the position I applied for. HR left a different number than the one that I was called from. Since it was late, I tried calling the next day. The number HR left was for a completely different person, but I left a message anyway. Later in the day, I tried the number I was called from, but the voicemail of HR was full and you could only send an SMS number. They never called back. I tried two more times with no return response, except a butt dial at 9:30pm with an immediate hang-up. Decided at this point if HR was so inept, it did not bode well for the company. I was never able to schedule an interview for the position they called me about.
