    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I did a 30 minute on campus behavioral interview. After the interview they sent out an email saying that I was still in the pool of applications being considered for the position. My friend got a second interview and I did not. They have never emailed me to inform me that I was no longer a candidate. If they had simply told me they had hired another person it would have been fine but being strung along was not professional.

    Reporting Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was brought in via a recruiter and had a Skype interview and then an in person interview. After I realized how poor the recruiting/contracting firm's benefits were, I declined the offer to join as a contractor. Southern Company then tried to bargain with me twice and finally offered me a direct hire position. I accepted and patiently waited on my offer letter to come "in the next few days." Two weeks passed by and after numerous attempts to contact SoCo by both myself and the recruiting agency, we finally got a hold of someone who said they decided to hire someone else internally and no longer were offering me a job. They weren't planning to reach out and tell me that I wasn't getting hired. Good thing I didn't submit a 2 weeks notice on a verbal job offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Company (Tuscaloosa, AL) in October 2019.

    Interview

    My co-op student interview lasted about 30 minutes. It was more formal compared to some of my other interviews that felt more conversational. But, I think that is to be expected with such a large corporate structured company.

    Interview

    I did the interview process through campus recruiters. The first interview is a behavioral interview and they ask you generic questions. Be sure to know a lot about the company and prepare really good questions to ask them
