    Lineman Helper Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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?
