Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Southern Company (Waynesboro, GA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for position posted online. Was phoned for an interview a couple months later. There were no questions in the interview that asked anything about what I actually knew about Engineering. All questions pertained to how I interacted with people. 2 weeks passed when I received an email stating they had not decided on who they were going to hire. A few days later someone from HR called me to tell me my min salary was too high. (This was entered on my application I initially filled out.) I explained that I had simply put down my current salary. She told my the max they could pay was $20k less than what I listed. I agreed to the cut in order to gain a permanent job. After this conversation, I did not hear from them for 2 more weeks. I then received an email telling me would not be receiving an offer.
