    I applied online. I interviewed at Westinghouse.

    Interview

    There was not an interview because I was offered a position after I completed two internships with the company. I received an offer after completing no additional interviews. I had 72 hours to accept/decline the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry Township, PA) in June 2016.

    The hiring manager and the HR rep met with me in person. They each asked pretty standard questions , it seemed to mostly be a formality. Nothing very technical mostly behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Westinghouse.

    Interview

    Interview was performed by several managers on a 1 on 1 basis. They were very open about sharing who they were with not only their experience and role in the company. Questions were based on resume and standard questions that explore character and work ethic. Each manager has a unique take on getting to these attributes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry, PA).

    Interview

    The process was extremely long. The time it took to get a phone screen scheduled, then an in-person interview was months. The interview process itself is pretty easy. They ask all situational questions so you just have to be prepared with examples.The manager seemed nice but the questions were not technical in nature at all.

    Interview Questions

    • They back you into a corner with one question about someone you've worked with that you didn't agree with their values. It was a bit awkward and hard to think of an example.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    By the time i got the go ahead for a start date, nearly a month and a half had passed. I accepted an offer with another company almost a month before Westinghouse got back to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry Twp, PA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Interviews for contractors are simple and short. Basic questions. It was done over the phone with very little questioning into my qualifications, surprisingly. I would have expected very specific questions related to my role, but it seemed as though it was more of a 'is this person sane or not' type of thing.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Asked for more due to the current market and the fact that it was contract work, but was told no.

    Interview

    I was asked a series of behavioral questions then asked a slew of technical questions. I've found that my interview experience is not average though.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly simple if you make it on-site. They typically bring in 100-200 graduating seniors to a conference center in downtown Pittsburgh. From what I was told, a large portion of the individuals who interview on-site get hired.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They were very flexible with the timing with which I accepted my offer.
