    Very stable company with great benefits. Company cares very well about employee safety. Salary is very good and is usually above average for entry levels. Very close community, senior employees always ready to help newer ones who may not be up to speed.


    For certain engineering disciplines, it might be a little restricted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, especially your concern about employee safety.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameren (Saint Louis, MO).


    First was a phone call with hr. Straightforward phone call asking about my resume and work experience. In person panel interview was the second step. The potential hiring manager as well as their manager and a couple other managers in the department were part of the panel. 100% behavioral. If you look up typical behavioral int questions you will find many that are asked. Have lots of examples of situations that fit the question. Know your background and how it applies to the role. Was offered a position but declined. Only issue I had with the process was the hr person could not clearly explain the bonus amount and how it was decided.
