    I worked at Direct Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid-back environment with good employees. The benefits were OK but below what competitors offered. The atmosphere was great for collaboration.

    Cons

    Salary increase was somewhat lagging and there were some layoffs sometime back. There was a hiring freeze in the department that suggested growth issues but has since been resolved.

    Customer Support Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Penn Pitt, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Energy (Penn Pitt, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed initially through a recruiter, then 5 in person interviews, back to back. I put a lot of time and energy into the preparation and felt I did excellent. After I followed up with them, I received a 2 sentence email that stated I didn't get the job with no explanation. I asked if I could get a few tips on what I could have done better and all emails were simply ignored.

    Interview Questions
