    Heavy Equipment Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nipsco (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Aptitude test, phone interview with head of gas construction and HR, and then a 1:1 meet and greet interview. Then background check DOT drug screen/physical. The phone interview was the toughest part of the pre-employment. From what I realized from this experience, once you pass the situational phone interview it's smooth sailing the rest of the way. My advice would be to prepare all types of job situations before the phone interview. The background check is very intense with checking/calling all previous employers, driving records, criminal records, all the way to failed DOT drug screens and physicals. Be upfront and honest with all of the steps of the process, they will find out if you're hiding something. Make it known that your first priority is safety of everyone around you(yourself, coworkers,public life and property).

    Interview Questions

    • All situational questions. Name a time when you had to use team work to accomplish a task at hand.   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you felt the customer was not satisfied and how you handled it?   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you satisfied a customer and how you know they were satisfied.   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you were subject to change between different crews/teams.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really a negational phase. Everything Nisource Inc and the Union has to offer is above and beyond for the working person. Pay, benefits, working location(try to keep you closest to home) and very knowledgeable instructing supervisors.
