    Data Analytics Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Juno Beach, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (Juno Beach, FL).

    Interview

    Started moving quickly and multiple phone/video interviews. When it was time to meet in person I missed a full day of work to drive down there...

    One of the interviewers didn’t show and I was standing around for over 30 minutes having no idea what was going on. The Hiring Mgr never came by when it was her time to interview me. Even though the 3 hours of interviews were in one conference room she said she didn’t want to go there and expected me to somehow find her office.

    The Recruiter was as fake as they come. He was all friendly and nice until after the several weeks of interviewing when he fell off the face of the earth. Even after I sent follow-ups thanking them for the interview I got no response.

    Weeks later I got a generic rejection letter...thanks for stringing me along guys and wasting my time!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (Juno Beach, FL) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I found that Nextera using Hireview method for interviewing candidates does not bring forth a true reflection of our potential. I found myself concerned with the social media aspect of the interview which has nothing to do with my abilities. To be honest, this approach to interviewing potential candidates is not something that I am accustomed to seeing and I found it to be somewhat outside of the norm. When asked to video tape myself and answer questions in this manner I found it to be somewhat unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Reading scripted questions about my background and experience while trying to record my self answering these questions is not a professional way to interview a potential candidate.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very basic. 15 minute phone interview with manager and her assistant. After the phone interview I was offered the position within 2 hours. I ended up turning it down 3 times during the negation process but ultimately took the job, which was a huge mistake—-read the Glassdoor reviews!!!!

    Interview Questions

    • What’s one thing that you don’t like to deal with on a daily basis?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated for a much higher salary than initially offered as well as got the inclusion of a monthly incentive. I was also offered the job 3 times and turned it down before negotiating my final rate. They are desperate to fill certain roles.

    Be wary, especially if the role is a contractor position. More money does not mean anything if you only work there a month!!

    NOC Technician Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NextEra Energy, Inc. (Miami, FL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interview went great, it was schedule to last an hour but it went for over two hours. I answered all their questions better than they were ever expecting. They even said it themselves, they were blown away by my answers which were technical but business aimed as well. I was expecting a call back but it never happened, when I reached back to them two weeks after the recruiter told me the managers really wanted me but they were looking for someone with my skills, my degrees and a ccna certification (which wasn’t required in the position only preferred) months passed by and they closed the job without filling the position. My friend had a very similar experience in the IT department as well. We are convinced FPL management interviews women and minorities only to comply with the law but not really trying to hire women.

    Interview

    A rolling panel of lead developers. No formal technical portion, just casual questions about which techonologies I was familiar with. More of a personality assessment. The interview was pretty casual overall.
