    After applying for the job it took a while to get a call back, actually forgot I had applied to the job (for timeframe reference). I had previously taken the poss/mass exam so when they tried to set that up I told them I had previously taken test. Received an email confirming phone interview for the next week.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PSEG (Newark, NJ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Brief technical interview followed by behaivioral interview. Interview lasted one and a half hours and was with a panel of thred interviewers including a very senior engeneer. They were very happy and easy going untill I asked about where I could find the company's employee handbook, or any other resource where employee responsibilities, promotions and other vital onformation can be found. It turns out they had no such resource. They were clearly botherex by the simple question and went about fkr 15 minutes explaining their way aroud it.

    IT Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PSEG (Newark, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    In my opinion, do not go on an interview with PSEG if you expect them to respect your work history or references.

    I had a phone interview for an IT Data Analyst position and advanced on to the onsite 2nd Interview.

    I came prepared to the 2nd Interview with my cover letter, resume of 15 years work experience, references and a flash drive with copies of my work.

    At the end of the 2nd Interview, I was given a Homework assignment to research 3 local cities and their school systems and report that information back to the hiring manager.

    In my opinion, a homework assignment was utterly ridiculous , the topic was not at all related to the position, and completely condescending to someone with 10 plus years work history with references.

    When I told them I felt singled out, they told me everyone was asked to do a Homework Assignment.

    When I t told them I felt it was unrelated to my position, they told me they disagreed with that statement.

    In my opinion, how does reporting on schools at municipalities relate to IT analysis. I do not know.

    FYI. In my opinion, the Interview process is horrible and if that is the culture of their management. In my opinion, you do not want to work there

    Secondly, I felt baited when I told them I was going to the EEOC and getting an attorney because in my opinion, their email correspondence came acrossed as "GO HEAD DO IT."

    This is a company that has some serious hiring issues.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PSEG.

    Interview

    Initial phone call, follow-up phone call, waiting period, phone call to accept the position from hr, medical/drug test, final job offer made after passing medical. The interviewer from PSEG was very nice and informative.

    Interview Questions

    • They spoke about safety in a high regard - it means a lot to them. They asked "One instance where you exercised safety?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Pretty cut and dry - being as it was an intern position. I didn't want to overstep my bounds during money negotiation.
