    Database Administrator Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PacifiCorp (Portland, OR) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Phone call to schedule phone interview. They called on time. I was very impressed with them.

    Wasn't nearly as prepared as I should have been, and at the time, not sure I would be free of other obligations, so I just decided to wing it. Interviewers were very professional, supportive and followed up later to let me know they filled the position. I got the impression they had a great team over there. I felt bad that I had let them down. The lead interviewer took the time to give me pointers on what to study up on and encouraged me to keep an eye out for other opportunities with their organization in the future. I did not expect any kind of response at all. Class act!

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PacifiCorp.

    Interview

    Applied online after talking with a contact of mine who works at PacifiCorp. Was contacted a couple weeks later for a phone interview. The interview was about 45 minutes long, not a single behavioral based question, very relaxed and easy interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were non behavioral based and many focused on safety and past experiences. Interviewers seemed as if they just wanted to get to know me and see if I was a good fit for the company. Interview was phone based   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PacifiCorp (Portland, OR) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Interview with 2 managers and 2 architects. 2 hr Interview was thorough almost combative with 1 architect monopolizing my interview with medium difficulty questions. 1 'manager' laughed at a couple of answers I gave. The other barely spoke. I got feedback quickly and was hired 2 weeks later!

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at PacifiCorp.

    Interview

    I had been working as a contractor through an external agency and had been instrumental in putting together their website. This was a contract to hire position which seems to be their trademark. The hiring afterwards was a perfunctory job.

    Staff was knowledgeable and had directed questions. Interview was at their downtown location for T&D services. It was formal and there were several active employees at the interview. Questions were related to the job and they did a good job of telling me about the expectations of the job. It was not too difficult and felt engaging.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PacifiCorp (Portland, OR) in April 2011.

    Interview

    It was very short. I had two interviews. The initial interview was with a friend at the company. The second was with the whole Legal team. They really just asked me personal questions to gauge whether I was a good fit personality wise at the company. They didn't ask very hard questions, but did ask questions that forced me to think. My political experience was a large plus for them, as was my experience on Moot Court in Law School.
