I worked at the Culver's in Bridgeview Illinois. I walked in for a application And had a interview on the spot. After I told them about my experience with the equipment they had in the kitchen They had me come back there and show them. After a few minutes flipping burgers reading off the monitor explaining how and when to use the fryer I had the job. Good thing I came ready to work with my nonslip shoes on. I started the next day. One thing I noticed about Culver's is that they are a cut above the rest. They use high quality ingredients in their food always fresh always clean. The custard will make people lineup around the building and down the block In the middle of a blizzard! So come prepared ready to work. They might just want to show you around and you might miss out if you not wearing proper shoes.

Hi @Jaimie Guthrie ! When preparing for an interview, here are some things that I find to be useful:

  • Do your research about the company. Head to Consumers Energy's website and poke around a little bit, specifically the "about us" page. It's important to find out as much as you can about the job and the company itself. It will help you prepare to answer interview questions about the company as well as help you craft questions to ask the interviewer.

    Get a sense of how they compare to other organizations in the same industry. By doing this prep research, you'll be able to determine if the company and its culture are a good fit for you and it will help you feel more confident in your interview.

  • Practice interviewing. Ask a friend or family to conduct a mock interview with you! This will help you practice a confident speaking voice and approachable body language. While you may find this comes naturally to you, spend time performing them with friends, family, a pet, or in front of a mirror. This is a great time to review how to navigate tough interview questions.

  • Figure out what you're wearing. Don't wait until the last minute to pick out your outfit. Make sure your clothes are ready to go the night before and are stain-free and wrinkle-free. Check out these tips on what to wear to an interview!

You'll also want to know how and when to follow up after an interview.

On the day of the interview, arrive 10 minutes early with a smile to make a great first impression. When you're ready to apply, click here to find jobs near you! Good luck... let us know how else we can support you.

I agree with Elyssa. When I worked at Consumers Energy, my interview process was easy for the department I was applying to. When I worked there, I had other interviews within the company for other jobs. I have to say it was tough and hard to do since I was not familiar with what that department entailed. Not only know the company itself but also the department and role you are applying to. Be professionally dressed and be ready for tough questions. Heads up the process is usually three interviews depending on the department and the role. Good luck to ya!!!

Prep work for an interview

How much should I learn about a company and the specific job I’m applying for before I go into the interview? My interview is with Target. I know they are a national retail company with stores all over the US. I know cashiers basically scan merchandise and process payments for customers. Is there any other company or position information I should know before the interview?

21st century success!

So excited to be coming to Hebron/Cinci area to talk with Jobcasers about succeeding in their worklife. We have a whole team coming in from Boston and friends from Amazon recruitment helping out too.
W are going to talk about managing to success, how to get a job (crazy process these days) and how you can take advantage of all the trends that sometimes seem to work against us - and turn it into your advantage.
Its gonna be a fun, fast-moving, productive session.
Its gonna capture a ton of knowledge we see from watching millions of jobseekers and thousands of companies.
Be sure to ask any questions here over the next 2 days - and then be sure to get there 9:00 Wed morning for a great day!

ps: did I mention free professional photographer for head shots, and a $500 drawing at the end of the day so someone can get a interview wardrobe makeover? Gonna be great!

Meeting the Big Boss

Several of us have been invited to breakfast with the Division Operations Director. How should I prepare to stand out and leave an impression? Should I be thinking about questions to ask?

"Hehe" a hunters adage.

Enjoying the day waiting &preparing for an oppurtunity..like for a hunter who waits till his food comes to him are near him and the hunter who goes in search for the food always within a great distance..I reckon the hunter who waits till the food gets to him will have more energy to search for other food source's..rather than always having to go in search of food.

The teachers that are hard and may look mean, are the ones that care and want you to get a feel of how the real world will be instead of making life easy. Life isn't easy, you must work hard for it to know the game of life.
