In the end it was a great experience and they seem like an ideal company to work for. They seem very professional and intelligent, and the organizational culture seems like it would be friendly and encouraging while providing great career opportunities.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sempra Energy (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    The whole experience was very pleasant and professional. This is a large company with a well defined org structure. So, all the details such as job description, salary range, reporting structure and career growth possibilities were clear.
      I offered details on my previous job and my skills during the interview. The process went very well as I was able to demonstrate the outputs in a short and concise format.

    You know the limits the company can offer you based on their rigid structure. Ask for other benefits such as vacation, relocation, work from home etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sempra Energy (North Houston, TX) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The company was developing a new recruiting/hiring process so there were some organization/scheduling issues. Generally, the process begins with a phone interview with HR/recruiting staff to screen you based on experience, education, personality, etc. That is followed by 1:1 interview with 2 or 3 management level people. There may be follow up interviews. If you are selected, your references are cheked. That is followed by an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Several reasons: distance to the office, no signing bonus to cover loses from unvested benefits, and counteroffer from current employer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sempra Energy (San Diego, CA) in September 2007.

    Interview

    Interview was held on time and questions asked were very well structured leaving room for freedom to show personalities of both interviewer and candidate.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was not welcomed. I attempted to negotiate for a higher salary and was denied and questioned why there was even negotiating happening? It seemed to be something unheard of by the hiring manager. It would be interesting to know if others successfully negotiated.
