    I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits salary and vacation are awesome. Technology savvy! Diverse employer with many job options.Fairly solid company with a strong CEO!

    Cons

    Good ole boys club! Your opinion doesn’t mater unless your in the click! Advancement is not always because of your skill and knowledge. Room for advancement is slim.

    Advice to Management

    STOP THE GOOD OLE BOY CLUBS !!! It benefits no one. People are placed in positions of moderate power that haven’t a clue about the trade! Diversity is fine and well, buy placing some one in a position because of race or gender is not responsible!

    Nuclear Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FirstEnergy (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Got a phone call from HR to set up an interview 3 months after applying online. HR called me on Monday and they wanted me there for an interview on that coming Friday. Then on Tuesday I got a call my interview would actually be that Thursday instead. First red flag. They gave me barely enough time to get off my plane and drive to the interview. I show up and neither HR or the managers interviewing me know what room we were in. Second red flag.

    Interview went well, almost all behavioral questions, with a couple kinda tricky ones. Took about 45 minutes. The panel interviewing me was very laid back and personable. I could immediately tell that they had not even looked at my application beforehand and that they had no interest in hiring me. Found it odd that not a single question was asked about what I enjoy doing or anything then it came up that there is a LOT of mandatory overtime without extra compensation and that they are having a significant retention problem. Red flag number three.

    With how disorganized and rushed the process was I did not plan on accepting an offer even if one was given. When you see details like this being messed up at a nuclear facility, run. If this was their best foot forward I'm afraid to know what goes on once you're employed there.
