    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry Township, PA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process for external people consists of a recruiter prescreen. If liked, you will then have a technical phone screen with the hiring manager. If liked at that point, you generally are called in for an interview, which is a behavioral interview. If an internal employee, you will generally have a prescreen call with a recruiter and then proceed to a behavioral interview but, at times, you just have the interview. The behavioral interviews, in my opinion, do not produce the most capable candidates. The interview process is such much more cumbersome and employers in this day and age just need to be more frank and ask direct questions and expect frank, direct answers. Why bother with reading between the lines and deciphering someone's personality; ask real questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Westinghouse.

    Interview

    Lengthy - tons of behavioral questions, HR takes forever to do basic tasks. Questions were designed to predict how well you would react to everyday issues at the job. I found most of the questions were not very useful. I interviewed with one person and an HR representative. I received the offer from the HR rep.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Applied online, and a phone screen was scheduled. It was a conference call with a few different team members, both development and management. Questions were very high-level; no programming knowledge required. It was more behavioral. After the phone screen, was invited on-site. Again, a panel of interviewers at once, high-level questions, some technical, but no coding.
