    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed for direct engineering position. Positive and relaxed interview atmosphere. Interview was personality based. Questions were guided so that I could relate specific examples and stories of actions that I took in order to resolve difficult situations. Wanted to know how I envisioned my "style" as an engineer and whether I saw myself as a team player.

    Interview

    Waste of time! Was contacted via LinkedIn by a recruiter and politely declined the opportunity. The recruiter then made three separate appointments to talk with me, cancelling each one after the fact. Now the recruiter is requesting via email that I call him.

    I was clear that I am not actively seeking a new position, so I do not understand why he keeps wasting my time.

    Applied online. Got a phone call from the HR asking me to come for the interview. The interview was conducted by a panel consisting of 5 people. They took turns asking different questions. Overall questions were structured to get more specific examples of my previous experiences and achievements. Not too difficult. A week later gor a call and the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Westinghouse.

    Interview

    I had an off-the-cuff interview with the hiring manager. The department was looking to quickly fill my current position after it was abandoned by the previous candidate and I think anyone who was remotely qualified would have gotten the job. There was no involvement from HR though, and that was awesome!

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    HR had a chilly attitude during the interview. "Behavorial" group interview set-up (which frankly, went out of style in the 1960s, which matches Westinghouse's culture). One HR rep just sat there and didn't say anything, but observing my every move and taking notes. Hiring manager left the room twice to take a call during my interview, which is rude. After following up, not one response back from Westinghouse - not even a rejection email. And this is over a year ago. Westinghouse has a reputation in Pittsburgh market about its archaic interview/hiring process.

    SCM Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Evans City, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview ONLY! No true conscious effort focused on ones' true abilities and qualifications. I felt as though I was brought in just for "filler". In other words, I was interviewed so the company could say they interviewed so many people. The questions were more for a higher position than I was applying for and there were 6 people interviewing me. It was a ridiculous waste of my time.
