    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at A1 Solar Power.

    Interview

    I went through four interviews in the process after the initial phone interview screening. I met with all the higher ups, and in meeting with 3 out of the 4 them, they asked all the right questions, let me give real life experiences in connection with the job as well.

    Interview Questions

    • I was surprised when one of the higher ups who interviewed me last asked questions that were illegal and personal such as my age, who I was dating, etc. I never answered, but steered the interview to other things.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This is what we'll offer you type of thing. I felt like it was more a take it or leave it and because the economy was bad, I took it because I thought I could lend my skills to help go the better way.
