    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southern Company.

    Interview

    Interviewed by a panel of 6 people. Each person took turns asking questions. They were all nice and polite, but the process can still be intimidating. I didn't recall call got the interview for over a month after replying. It then took about 2 weeks to hear the decision. Overall good experience.
