    Engineering Development Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ercot (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email a couple of months later for a 30 min phone screening with HR with typical HR questions. That was followed quickly by another 30 min call with the engineer in charge of the program. He asked me to describe chunks of my resume with very little input from his side. Made me feel like he wasn't very interested, which was probably true because I never heard from them again...
