    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Progress Energy (Raleigh, NC) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Progress Energy follows a standard interview process that is similar to other nuclear utility companies. Nuclear workers are required to have background checks, drug test, and personality test. The face-to-face interview is a panel of three with one person normally an HR person. Questions are anecdotal in nature relating to leadership skills, technical skills, project skills, and abilities to relate to others. Plus personal strengths and weaknesses.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe you greatest weakness and how you will work to resolve it.   Answer Question
