    Heavy Equipment Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SCANA (Columbia, SC) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I was told about the job opening in the department by an employee for the company. However, the website is very good about listing job openings. SCANA is a great company, and it is not hard to move within the company, so even if the job is not in your particular wheelhouse, still apply and try to move later.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was extremely relaxed. I did not have any problems answering any question. I had no experience in equipment operation, so I was nervous when they asked about that. But, it was no problem. They trained me on every piece of equipment imaginable and trained me how to drive trucks and helped me get my CDL.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Everything happened during the initial interview. I was asked what kind of money I was expecting to be paid, and I told them what I currently made. They matched that and gave me a raise soon after my hire based on my progress in learning.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I quickly applied for an internship position, not expecting to even get a call back. However, I received an email within a week informing that I had been selected for a phone interview. The phone interview including myself and two others, but was very laid back, questions about my background of skills were asked. Once I made it through the phone interview I was offered an in person interview where I would also be given a programming aptitude test. The in person interview consisted of getting to know one other, my resume, and basically why I deserved the position. Overall, SCANA is very persistent and the people are very kind.

    Interview Questions

    • The programming aptitude test was a bit difficult, but not because of the question difficulty, but because I had never taken one before and I was extremely nervous that I wouldn't pass. It was also timed which added some pressure.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was an internship offering $19 an hour, which was more money than I had ever made or expected to make at an internship, so I did not negotiate.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SCANA (Columbia, SC) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The phone interview consisted of a group on a conf. phone. Questions were behavioural based, "what if", "what will", "what do". Expect very little verbal feedback which can be unnerving and does not help you open up. Also, the conference interview is difficult to hear questions, be patient and ask them to repeat if you don't understand. Have a list of questions for them because they do give you a chance to ask and evaluate you on your questions.

    Hopefully I misunderstood my interviewers but it sounded like they snidely laughed at a question I posed to them. It was a normal interview question.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SCANA (Jenkinsville, SC) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Submitted application online and was later contacted by Human Resources to set up the interview and testing dates. Was required to take a POSS aptitude test on the first day and pending successful POSS Test, then interview would happen the next day. SCANA was very flexible in testing and interview dates and willing to work with me on schedule due to me being in the Navy

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were very general in nature and most of them were situation based.
      1) Tell me a time where you failed at your job and how you handled it as well as what you learned from it.
      2) Tell me a time from your past where you were significantly challenged and what actions did you take to overcome the challenge.

    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
