    Interview

    Process was long and drawn out. Must have a clean background and be drug free. Don't lie on background check because they WILL find out the truth if they don't already know and most of the time they already know.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Southern Company (Birmingham, AL).

    I applied online 3 months earlier. I was contacted to come into their Birmingham office for an interview. When I got to Birmingham, I was informed the position was also available in Atlanta. I was offered a position in the Atlanta office. The amount they initially offered was below the amount I asked for; therefor I countered and they provided me with the exact amount I requested. Initially they stated because of the bonus, I would achieve the desired rate. However, the bonus is not guaranteed.

    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.
