    I have been working at CenterPoint Energy full-time (more than 5 years)


    good salary and benefits, stable, good people, flexable schedules, no overtime


    not lead by example, very political, people are promoted because of number of years at the company not because of skill set, no incentive or appreciation shown to employees that work hard and employees that don't pull their weight are allow to do so while others have to pick up their slack

    Positive Outlook

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CenterPoint Energy in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I just got the approval email from Centerpoint Energy after taking the interview. The email came within a few hours after my interview. Before the interview you had to take and pass the CAST test which was pretty challenging due to the time restraint. Don't worry about finishing just answer as many questions right as possible. Don't take forever to do each question. If the question looks too hard just move on to the next. Make sure your answers and the bubble sheet matches the test. It's very easy to skip an answer and start bubbling in the incorrect question.

    Interview Questions
    • Why should we pick you to be the next electrical lineman for our company?
      What does safety mean to you?
      Do you have any experience working with tools?
