    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ESBI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are very nice, easy to get on with and there is a good sense of family. Employees and their welling being are highest on the ESB agenda. Staff are well looked after and there is an excellent social scene. There is plenty of scope to move and progress your career if you wish. Scope for further training and education is excellent.

    Cons

    Big organisation and change can be slow. The culture can take a little getting used to if you are new to the organisation and are coming from the private into a semi-state sector. But its not really a bad thing or a concern it's just a matter of adjustment.

    Advice to Management

    In terms of staff, there needs to be more ESB employees as opposed to using vendors to augment the numbers as it can be challenging to retain the experience and knowledge that is gained by non ESB employees, which walks out the door at the end of their engagement.
    Contribution by ESB to health care for staff should really by incorporated into the compensation package.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ESBI (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    After applying they sent an approximately 2h aptitude test which had to be completed first.

    They sent out some preparatory material with questions/scenarios to prepare for the interview. The interview consisted of a 30 min case study where I was asked to prepare some answers on an issue with a base plant generator and how to deal with it. Then was brought in front of a panel of 3 to showcase my answers for 8 minutes, after which they asked questions on the case study. Afterwards was asked to talk about myself and my CV and then they asked some competency based questions. The interview was based on the STAR approach, Situation/Task, Action, Results.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked questions on the following three:
      Delivering Results
      Applying Technical Skills and Knowledge
      Teamwork

      Was also asked why I wanted to work there, why they should pick me over the other applicants.
