Exelon interview
« on: Feb 04, 2016, 11:34 »
I have an upcoming interview with Exelon for Byron station in Chicago for Entry level Equipment operator. I received a call from the recruiter and hours later I got my hotel,flights and car rentals booked and sent to me. However, the email said nothing about a test and only stated a 1hr interview. Regardless I will be ready for any tests but I think since they just made mention of an interview, I might not be taking a test.

Also If anyone has interviewed with Exelon for the Equipment operator position, Please feel free to update me on what to expect on my interview next week. Thanks everyone for finding the time to help.

A few tips that were passed onto me when I was interviewing.
Have failures in your examples, not all successes.
DO NOT LIE, these people for the most part are pros. Believe me they know when you are fibbing.
Keep your answers short. Don't drag on an answer as you may end up hanging yourself.
Go to Exelon's website and read their vision and values several times.

# 3 is a joke. They have no idea if you are lying in a personal story nor will it ever be checked.

Take as long as you need.

It is quite ok to use a non nuclear story.

1) Under your seat is a disassembled high powered rifle with an assembly manual written in Swahili.
In 5 minutes, a live Bengal Tiger will be admitted to the room.
Be prepared to justify your actions.

2) In the enclosed box, you'll find a razor, alcohol, a needle and dental floss.
Remove your appendix.
Have your work checked prior to suture.

I've interviewed with Exelon three times now and (sadly) didn't get the job. Most of the things on here are real, save the one about the swahili machinegun thingamijiggy... I think he was being sarcastic.

The only thing I'd warn you about is if  you don't get the position they won't call you to tell you. You'll just receive silence.

Good luck!
