    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jenkinsville, SC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Jenkinsville, SC).

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and someone called me about 5 days later for a phone interview. She called me the next day to set up a in person interview which turned out to be a three person panel, five behavioral questions only which they took turns in asking. I have not been offered the position.

    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!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Westinghouse.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Evans City, PA

    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.

    Interview

    There are no technical questions part of the actual supported process, it's up to the hiring manager to ask those. HRs behavioral interview is lacking in several areas, kind of a joke.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    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.
