    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at POWER Engineers in April 2018.

    Interview

    Started at a college career fair, employees were nice and willing to give me info about POWER. Gave a resume and applied for a position online. About three months later was told to apply for a position at a different location, because the one I had originally applied for was filled. A phone interview was set up with the recruiter the typical interview questions were asked and was told about the POWER culture, a couple weeks after that an onsite interview was set up. Offered to fly me to the office, pay for rental car, and hotel. The interview was more of about them getting to know me and how I'd fit with they're work atmosphere, talked with a lot of employees during the interview and got a good feel for how the work environment was.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    I got grilled at a career fair, about a half hour of very technical questions. He said he was quizzing my school, not me, but that's not how it felt to me. After many emails, networking, following up I got a behavioral interview with HR. Long behavioral phone interview, tell me a time when etcc etcc.. They had heard I got pretty technical at the career fair so the HR rep wasn't sure if I would have to do another technical interview. Turns out I did, phone call with several people on the other end.. super technical.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at POWER Engineers (Billings, MT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied and accepted an Intern position in Substation Physical Design.

    I applied to a few Intern positions with POWER as far back as a month before I had the interview, and spoke with an employee about the company and job opportunities early on. I then contacted them about a week before our University's Recruitment Fair, to let them know I was interested. After speaking to them in person at the fair, I followed up a week later and they asked me to come down to the office for an interview. It was very laid back and conversational. They spoke a great deal about the work, let me look at some project plans, and then offered me the internship. They were friendly and straightforward. Overall a very positive experience.

    Simple verbal interview.
    Great HR rep prepped me on culture and presentation as it was much different than other places and that made an impact on me from the start.

    Pay offer was much higher than similar places in this area, even though cost of living is low in Boise.

    Negotiation

    Simple and initial offer was outstanding with reasoning for amount and raise opportunities and progression made clear immediately.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at POWER Engineers (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Easy for an average college graduate. There is an on-line timed typing quiz to figure out how fast you can type. other average on-site interview questions. This employer likes to get their bucks for whoever they hire.
    For Example, they paid a liberal art major Stanford graduate with a few years under his belt as a project control guy about $23/hour for a project control position. I spilled the beans to meet the minimum 30 words requirement per Glassdoor.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at POWER Engineers (Boise, ID) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was very informal lunch. The man interviewing me had shorts, a tee shirt, and a ball cap on which made me really overdressed. It was an entry level position so there was no technical questions asked. The interview was basically to see if my personality would fit well with his group.

    Interview Questions

    • No technical or business questions were asked. Probably because this was an entry level position.   Answer Question
