    Renewable Energy Practice Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Patrick Engineering (Lisle, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    If you get an interview from this company, run the other way. They are a thieves and frauds. I had a phone interview, then a face to face interview with the hiring manager. The interview went great. Throughout the interview they misled me to believe that they were going to give me an offer. The hiring manager used this interview to help him identify a business problem they were having. After the interview, I received an email from the hiring manager asking for my help to solve their pressing business problem. I spent a whole weekend trying to come up with a financial model to solve their problem. I was able to successfully solve their problem with a detailed financial model. I emailed the hiring manager. After repeated follow-ups, I got an email that they are still reviewing candidates. Then finally, I got an email that they have selected another candidate who "more closely matches their current requirements."

    I have many years' of experience in renewable energy. There possibly could not have been a better candidate. I suspect they used my expertise to solve their business problem since I have an MBA. Then they went out and hired someone who will be much cheaper.

    Before you think of interviewing with this company, review the employee reviews in Glassdoor carefully. After this experience, I find the negative comments about this company are entirely true.
