    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xcel Energy (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 gentlemen on the electrical engineering team. They were friendly and kind and I felt good afterwards. They asked me if I knew a lot of technical things, they went down a list, and checked the things I knew and didn't know.
