What Is Entergy’s Recruitment Process?

It all starts on the careers page. Search for the position that is right for you by job title, or location. If there is nothing that seems to be a good fit, you can sign up to receive alerts as positions become available. If you have submitted an application you will receive an email verification alerting you that it was submitted properly. Certain jobs require you to take pre-employment tests before you can move ahead in the hiring process. If testing is required for the position you want, it will be stated in the job posting. If you are invited to interview, don’t be surprised if you go through a series. You may start with a phone interview and move on to in-person interviews. Interviews in person may be done one on one, or as a panel, you may even have a few of each. If you have received an offer, the process doesn’t stop there. You still need to pass a background check and may need to have a fitness for duty check as well. Once you have successfully passed these screenings, you will be given your start date.

How to Prepare for Entergy’s Assessments?

There are plentiful resources to help you prepare for all of the EEI tests. The Entergy website has links to practice tests and informational brochures. Don’t ignore the chance to take the practice tests. These will help you get familiar with the test format and will help you get used to the time limits you will be working under. Use your performance on the practice tests to identify the areas you need to work on. Safety manuals are a good place to start if you need to practice reading for comprehension. Use old class materials to brush up on machinery, and run through basic math problems to practice speed and accuracy. If you have previously passed the necessary test, you may not have to take it again, speak to your recruiter about the process of having your results transferred.
