    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SCANA (Cayce, SC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly regular. I had a phone interview with someone in HR after submitting my application. Shortly after the application was processed, I received a call from a lady in HR asking me a few generic questions about life/handling problems etc. After my phone interview, I received an in-person interview where I was asked a series of questions that were read off of a piece of paper which was standard for internships. These questions only related to life, handling situations etc and were not technical by any means.

    • Describe one time where you did a job that was not yours in order to help someone else succeed.   1 Answer

    Engineer III Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at SCANA (Jenkinsville, SC).

    Interview

    Months after applying, I was invited for an interview. A couple of months after that, they made an offer. I thought this meant another candidate was selected (and declined) before me. I found out later I was the first choice. The wheels can turn slow at a public utility.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very skill (engineering) specific (e.g., what codes/standards I am familiar with, what kind of projects I had worked on, etc.).   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Salary was not negotiable (I tried). But I was able to negotiate a sign-on bonus and additional PTO (their policy is to start everyone with 3 weeks PTO no matter how experienced you are). I almost didn't accept because of the salary. I was "promised" unspecified and significant increases in my first two years. I accepted assuming the promises of significant salary increases would not be kept (I've heard this before). But much to my surprise, my salary went up 23% by the second year (presumably to increase in smaller, more reasonable increases annually from now on). I think the promise was only made (and kept) because I was serious about leaving the table over the non-negotiable salary that was not commensurate with my education and experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SCANA (Columbia, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview first and then, if selected, a Sit Down Face to Face interview with 3 person panel. Each member of the panel asked a question and as I would answer the question, each member of the panel would all write down on the score sheets. I'm assuming they are scoring my answer. They make you feel right at home and very comfortable.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SCANA in April 2012.

    Interview

    I first applied online in early january, and didn't hear back until March. Their HR department is very slow, and things take a while to get approved in HR. I had an initial phone interview, after which I was invited back for an in person interview. It was a 3 person panel, where they posed behavioral type questions to me. Pretty standard, nothing too difficult or out of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions

    • There were not really any unexpected questions. Pretty standard. Just be prepared to explain your resume.   Answer Question
