Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SolarCity.

Interview

There was a test. But it was mainly to test the candidate's thinking process. Then there was the typical interview question session. It was pretty simple. Just review interview questions and you'll be fine.

    Interview

    interview was over call. There were 2 managers; one explained about the position and other one asked questions. It was a bit stressful with so many questions, but not so bad. Nothing technical was asked.interview lasted for about half an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SolarCity.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of 2 phone interviews. No technical quiz. This was one of the easier and shorter interviews since other companies often had 3+ interviews. I talked first with a general hiring manager then with my potential direct supervisor. We discussed general background, why I want to work for SolarCity, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SolarCity.

    Interview

    Not a whole lot of personal questions. Mostly a big intro about the company and the type of work I'd be doing if hired on. The interviewer had a small technical exam, but really it was more of a test to see how I'd react under pressure, and how I go about solving problems. The interview was very easygoing. He asked the typical interview questions near the end.

    Interview

    Simple interview process, expect it to be more of a conversation than anything. SolarCity is looking for a personality type more than anything. Expect to talk about your work experience and how you handled difficult times. Make sure you are able to work in a team if you want to work here and be sure to portray that to the interviewer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SolarCity (Phoenix, AZ (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter initially emailed and wanted to talk to me about the position, didn't specify if he meant phone or in person. Sent him my availability for the next 10 days. He scheduled a phone interview, and never called, didn't reply to email or phone call for 24 hours. Emailed his reason, which could sort of justify missing the interview, then assured me he still wanted to talk to me about the position. I emailed back that I understood, and again gave hime my availability. That was on April 10 and have not heard from him in any capacity. I accepted another job opportunity however I am curious if this has ever happened to anyone else?
