Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC).

Interview

I applied for this position online and approximately 6 weeks later I was contacted to interview with them in 2 weeks. I am local so I didn't get a free flight and the rock star treatment like the other reviews I have read on here. I think that is nice of SRNS. What I don't think is nice is that I am starting to suspect that maybe they select me to be interviewed as a "filler" so they don't have to buy another plane ticket but have no intentions of hiring me. I had a panel interview and most were nice. One of the interviewers was a jerk. He was nit picking stuff that was on my resume from 20 years ago that had nothing to do with the job. He ignored my recent accomplishments completely and fixated on the past. He took advantage of my modesty and honesty and put me in a position where I would have to be defensive. He did this at least 7 times that I can remember. It was almost as if they were playing "good cop - bad cop" but I don't think they deserve that much credit. I wish employers would be empathetic that we do spend a lot of time preparing for interviews and many of us need a job badly so even if we try not to get our hopes up, they are up. There is no need to be a jerk. My time is valuable too. No need to use me when you know you aren't going to hire me before the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Received call after 8 months of submitting online application. 30 minute phone interview. One week after phone interview received email about on-site interview. Airfare, car rental and 1 day hotel paid by SRNS. Was taken out to dinner the night before interview by senior engineer. Day of interview met with host and drove around site for about 45 minutes to get the know the area. The interview consisted of a 3 person panel (only engineers, no HR rep) and took about 45 minutes. Final step is lunch at the facility.

    After not hearing anything after 3 weeks, called and left voice mail. Within an hour of the call, received generic email saying "Thank you but no thank you".

    After I completed my application I was contacted by Human Resources to come to Augusta, GA for an onsite interview. When I arrived I was greeted by a fellow engineer who showed me around the city and took me to my hotel. The next morning the fellow engineer picked me up from the hotel and took me to the site for a general tour. After the tour and meeting a few people I might be working with I went to my group interview. Basic Interview questions were asked including skills and competencies. After that I had lunch with the fellow engineer and the engineering director for the company. After that the fellow engineer took me to look at possible housing and then back to the airport.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview which I feel was the primary selection process for me. I was offered an on site interview. The interview felt like I already had the job. The spent a lot of time telling me about the pros and cons of the job. I was toured around site by a 'New Hire' and had a number of informal interviews with various employees. I had one formal panel interview although it was very relaxed. My escort was sitting next to me and provided me with immediate feedback after the panel interview. It was way easier and less stressful than I would have ever imagined.
