Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming stationary engineer interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

It will all depend on the plant. I have been doing this since 1971 and I can not say that there are any common questions.
You to understand HVAC, boilers, electricity (know why 480/277 and 208/120) there is too much that either you know or do not know.

Yes. Most chief's want people that can do the job, that will be the main thing.
