    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

    Interview

    A 5 hour interview consisting of typical STAR questions and a presentation. Typically several interviewers at once.

    Part-way through, when it was just me and the hiring manager, he said to me something along the lines of "we're looking for a candidate that doesn't look like you." With follow-up comments, it was clear he was looking for someone older for the role. This is definitely a company with the "old guard" attitude where years of experience matter more than skills and ability. I had no interest in the position following this comment. I put in little effort for the rest of the interview and received an offer, but declined it instantly.

    Remember you are interviewing the company as much as they are interviewing you. If you meet a manager like that, run away.
