    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Westar Energy in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, a few weeks later they called me and set up two interviews for two different positions I applied to. Phone interview with two managers, both lasted about 30 minutes. Asked me a few technical questions as well as mostly STAR questions.
    Very positive experience, they really care about their current and potential employees.
