    I worked at ComEd full-time (More than 3 years)


    Great place to work. Awesome bonuses and flexible hours. Enjoyed the diversity of people.


    Commute was long into Chicago. Wes transferred to the Suberbs which I then had to drive instead of take the train.

    Web Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at ComEd (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in July 2017.


    Got an email from the HR on a Sunday night, 2 weeks after applying. The email said the hiring manager loved my profile amongst the rest and wanted to proceed with the application. Step 1 was the phone screen with the HR and some document filling. There was also a Hogan assessment which I cleared. The phone interview was really good and easy with basic questions about my resume; the HR also gave a very detailed explanation of ComEd's employee benefits and flexible policies. Until this time I felt I'm so lucky and the chosen one. Finally, my dreams are turning real. 3-4 days went by and I was told the managers are still reviewing it (I was constantly following up). I was wondering was it some kind of dream call? As everything was moving so slow!
    But finally, after a week I received an email asking my availability for interview. Please note that the interview date given was 2 weeks after. My clock was ticking really fast to find a job, but I was positive and started preparing. It was a panel interview (3 people + HR), very straightforward and totally process driven, started with the round of introduction and 5 STAR based questions on adaptability, difficult situation, diversity, etc. Everyone had a paper from which they were reading and writing my answers. I gave good answers and could see everyone smiling except one (She seemed not interested at all. I thought maybe it’s the end of the day or something). Nobody asked me any other question except the ones in the paper. I prepared so well and asked them the right questions in the end. I was positive that they liked me and I was so much excited to start working.
    2 weeks went by and the HR said they still haven’t made the final decision. I followed up again after 2 weeks (month after my interview they were still deciding – which is so passive, right). This time the HR said that they have selected another candidate for the position. I asked what was the reason to reject me to which the HR said that the team had a choice to hire either entry level or experienced. So they decided to hire a fresh grad.
    Not that I felt bad but I waited around 2 months for this role, turned down 1 offer (my bad) but they knew I was experienced why they wasted my time in the first place?
