    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Plainfield, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PSEG (South Plainfield, NJ) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I first was asked to do a video interview on Hire-Vue, unlimited attempts but I think that depends on what the hiring manager chooses. After the deadline about three days later, I was sent an email with available dates. I was at work so was going to answer later. 5 hours later I get a call saying they only have three spots available and they need me to choose, it sucked because i was left with the ones the very next day. So, if you get that email, jump on it! I came into their office and had two people interview me. First I was asked to run through my resume quickly. After that they asked some questions. All the questions were STAR based, which was only about five of them. If you glance at their papers you can see they write notes based on your answer and then at the bottom, leave a score. I think 5 is the highest. After that they left the room and allowed me to answer three open ended technical questions, so make sure to bring a pen. Not stressful at all, but make sure you bring some good responses, I blanked when it came to the creative solution question. Remember every time you fail, it'll make you better for the next time. Took a month for them to send their decision.

    Interview

    I applied to PSEG and process took about month or so. I received a call from HR requesting phone interview. It was about 20 to 30 min phone conversation, mainly about position description and candidate's background. After few days I received an email from HR for in person interview at Edision center. It was group/panel interview: Four manager and myself. In person interview lasted for about an hour. Seven question: Three technical and four STAR method question. Received an offer after about three to four weeks. It takes one month or more for joining after you accept the offer (Mainly due to background check and 15 days notice if you are currently employed).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PSEG (Newark, NJ).

    Interview

    I got a call a few weeks after i applied and i went to their head office in Newark to interview. I was interviewed by 2 people and the questions were all behavioral questions and one question about the internal Ops of PSEG.
    It took like 12 weeks for them to get back to me with a decision. The email i received was the same email they send to the general applicants that don't make the cut for the interview. They could have atleast put some more effort to draft a more personalized email to the candidates that don't go past the interview stage.
