    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at NPower.

    Interview

    Overall it was a solid interview process. The interview lasted no more than an hour. I particularly like that NPower is an IT talent pipeline and is a mission-driven organization. This position would also give me the autonomy to help implement new programs for students as well.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NPower (San Jose, CA (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I applied by sending a cover letter and resume to an email address as specified on the job posting. Checking back weeks later, I realized that the email/person to send the application to had changed (but the application was otherwise the same). I resent the application to the new email address and got a response saying that there was actually another position at the organization that I would be better suited for and asked if I was okay with them forwarding on my resume (which I was).

    The hiring manager for this next job did an initial 30-minute phone screening that felt more like a conversation than an actual interview but that went well enough that a virtual panel interview was scheduled with the rest of the team for the next week (I was not a local candidate). The panel interview started out fine enough, though with a lot of repeated questions and answers that I had already gone over in the first 30-minute phone call. About halfway through, the interview took a weird turn and I was asked questions that seemed completely unrelated to the job and seemed either very personally probing or designed as "gotcha" questions (e.g., "What do you do for fun in your spare time?" and "How many tennis balls are sold in the U.S. each year?"). By the time we got to the time for me to ask questions, two of the three individuals said that they had other calls at the next hour that they had to prepare for and excused themselves from the call (despite having scheduled my calendar for the full hour).

    A day later, I got a request to do another conference call with the group for "follow-up questions," which turned out to be them telling me over the phone that they had hired someone else for the job but thought I might be a good fit for an entirely different job in a different (but nearby) office with the organization. After the weird interview questions and this being the second time I had been "bounced" to another job for consideration, I began to worry about professionalism (thinking this probably wasn't a team I wanted to work on) and disorganization (perhaps only at this location or perhaps widespread) and told them thanks, but no thanks.

    Oh, and after thinking my way through the tennis ball question, I asked them what the answer was, but they hadn't looked that up. I say never ask a trick question like that that you yourself don't know the answer to!

    Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NPower.

    Interview

    Applied for a position posted on their website and heard back right away. Supposedly they were moving quickly so we set up a phone interview later in the week.

    It was a pretty basic phone interview, I never heard back though even after I followed up.

    It says a lot about a company the way they treat their applicants. We are all busy, there is just no excuse.
