    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Brookfield Renewable (Marlborough, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Fantastic from start to finish - they people were very nice the recruiter was very nice and the process went well. I had a medical issue that came up at the end and it took me out of the process (my decision). I would have loved the company
