    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NRG Global (IL) (Oak Park, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was just to get to know the person behind the resume, then the second interview takes you to the field for some "observation". The people were great, but the company structure was a little weird... reminded me of a pyramid scheme.

    Business Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NRG Global (IL) (Chicago, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    2 days of interview. The first interview was a normal 10 min in person interview, the second one was the horrendous one - IT LASTED A WHOLE DAY.

    The manager who interviewed me sent me and a group of other prospective workers to basically job shadow a group leader on her work day. It turned out to be us standing in a mall with their team just selling products to people walking by, and the team leader asked us to do various tasks while standing for the whole day. Things like write 20 of your pros and cons characteristics, write down what you think makes for a great leader, write down what you think we could do better in our sales process. The most ludicrous one was this 1.5h sit down task (it was also past lunch hour and the group leader completely just let us starve) asking us to come up with a creative business plan with a duration of 1 year and gross profit of 1 million at the end of the year. There needed to be detailed numbers in the fields of gross, net, profit margins, etc. The job asked for "no experience", how on earth are you supposed to write up a business plan like that, in details, with no business education?

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NRG Global (IL) (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Coming into this office was a breath of fresh air. It was a really cool office setting with lively background music and lots of windows. The Managing Director was very nice and outgoing. He asked about my previous positions and where I see myself in several years. I was then selected for a second round interview. I was able to see more in depth the duties of this position and how the office flow worked.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NRG Global (IL) (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I applied online, and I received an email shortly with possible interview dates. Upon my arrival, there was party music playing in the background from a TV behind the lady at the entrance. Also, it seem that there were two companies sharing the same floor. The lady asked me to fill out some information that NRG should've already had from my resume. As I sat there waiting for my interview time to come, a man came out of an office on the right side of the room and introduced himself to the lady next to me, whom was also there for an interview. After some time passed, and my interviewer was 25 minutes late, I realized that, there was only one interviewer and he was currently talking to the lady that was sitting next to me. Finally my time arrived, and the interview as a whole took maximum FIVE minutes. At the end of the interview, the "president" told me that he liked me as in he sees me as a great fit for the company. He also mentioned that they were going to contact me for a follow up interview that never happened.

    Interview

    It was long and had nothing to do with the position they offered. They asked questions that had nothing to do with the job and I figure it was something that could work but then it just didn’t feel right.
