    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Progress Energy Carolinas in Nov 2010

    Interview

    Phone interview with a general HR manager with some basic pre-screening questions. Was told that next the screen+resumes would be sent to more specific hiring managers, and I would hear back in 2 to 3 weeks. At about 2 and a half weeks I sent a simple follow up email to the person I talked to, but never received a response, nor did I get a call from a fellow employee.
    Interview

    If you had two job offers, one from Progressive and one from another company, of equal level - what three things would weigh most in making your decision?
