    Nuclear Operator In-Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ontario Power Generation (Ontario, CA (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Skype interview with two operators, in what seemed to be someone's home and not black-and-white office I'd expect. They were sitting right in front of the window, so I couldn't see their non-verbal responses too good. Not sure if intentional. Looks like they were not wearing anything fancy, just semi-formal sweaters and jeans. No three-piece suit for sure.

    Interview Questions

    • They specifically asked to respond with real life examples, not "if I were i'd do this" hypothetical stuff. Which is kinda hard for a trainee candidate but ok. Again take this review with a grain of salt because I think I didn't make the cut.

      The interview consisted of two parts, your usual "describe us when you had this situation and what did you do about it", safety attitude questions, STAR format mostly.

      The second part was technical questions, what is kilowatt-hours, what's convection-vs-conduction. No questions regarding previous operating experience, unfortunately. I was prepared to go into great detail about my co-op and lab experience, just to show that I'm interested in a career as an operator. They seem to be more interested in a solid groundwork in technical knowledge and interpersonal communication skilllset.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ontario Power Generation.

    Interview

    Great process, involved a phone interview, then an in-person. Once the in-person was complete, a fairly lengthy background check (which makes sense). The overall process was seamless and was a great place to work.
