Located at our corporate headquarters, Power Design's 16,000-square-foot training center is used for core training and hands-on simulation experiences to provide real-life applications, keeping us at the forefront of innovative training practices and techniques.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Power Design (Saint Petersburg, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Everything went really well. The recruiter I talked to was really nice and answered almost all of my questions before I could even ask them. She gave me the opportunity to talk about myself and show some personality. Then I was invited in to interview in person and that went really well, everyone was really nice. It was a Friday when I interviewed and of course I was wearing a suit while everyone else was in their casual Friday attire. Overall it was a great interview experience. I got a tour of the place after I interviewed which was nice, the facility here was new and well kept.
