    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    They called me a month after I applied and scheduled me for a prescreening. Afterwards, I got to speak on the phone with the hiring manager. Finally, I was brought in for a 3-hour panel interview. I was told to wait 7-10 days for a response and I didn't hear back until almost a month and a half afterwards. All attempts to obtain an update by me and the HR rep who did the prescreening were ignored. They didn't even bother sending a personal email. Very unprofessional and inconsiderate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Called a "firing squad", interviews are intimidating. You will be interviewed by at least 3-5 people who will ask you to give a presentation on your experience first then they will take turns asking standard "Tell us about a time..." questions. Usually the HR rep, hiring manager, manager peer and employee peer are on the panel.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a time you had to be creative?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate extra vacation or a signing bonus if you have good skills you know they want pretty badly. Don't push it though!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to an acquaintance and he it passed through the chain. There was no real interview process. I exchanged some emails and phone calls with the hiring manager and was extended an offer letter. My experience was a little different from other interns because I was being looked at out of state while finishing active duty military service. Other interns were required to do one on one interviews. and possibly more.
