    Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Allentown, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at PPL (Allentown, PA) in July 2008.

    Interview

    The hiring process at PPL is a lengthy one. From first contact by a staffing agency until I started was six months. I was given technical testing and interviewed by the staffing agency and then three separate interviews by PPL. The first was a one-hour phone interview, the second was a half day with HR, and the last was a technical interview by the team lead whom I ended up working with. It was also technical.

    Be patient and be yourself during the interview. If you are sitting there, you obviously have something that interests them. Do not be afraid to say you don't know the answer.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were pretty much routine. Why do you want to work for PPL? Why do you want to leave your current employer? Where do you see yourself in five years? I was also ABSOLUTELY grilled with detailed technical questions. If you don't REALLY know something, do not put it on your resume.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer they gave me was pretty solid. It was actually a pay cut, but they gave me a signing bonus to make up the difference for the first year. The offer was in writing, and they gave me a week. I accepted it the next day.
