    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Xcel Energy (Amarillo, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was actually two parts. First round telephone interview and second round in person interview. The first round telephone interview used behavioral based questions like," describe a situation you had a conflict with a team mate and how you reacted to the situation." And the second interview was in person and focused more on abstract questions like,"why is a manhole cover round?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Xcel Energy (Denver, CO) in September 2012.

    Interview

    2 interviews- approximately 30 minutes each. One with the whole team and one with the manager. I felt a little bit judged by the team, but it was good to get an impression of who I'd be working with. The interview was also in the area where I'd be working, so it was also nice to get a good impression of where I would be working
