Engineer Estimator - Electric Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric.
I filled out an application online though their career website. I received a call about two weeks later that I needed to pass two exams in order to even be interviewed. I was scheduled to take these two exams (PTB) and (Tech) two days later after I was called. The PTB was a math exam (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing: whole numbers, fractions and decimals with no calculator) and the Tech had four components: Physics principles, interpreting diagrams, word problems and graphic problem solving. I was called by a recruiter the following Monday, she told me I had passed both exams and that they wanted me to interview that Thursday.
