San Diego, CA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Sempra Energy in November 2011.

Interview Details – Met with several professionals from Senpra. They proceeded to ask me a series of general interview questions and more specific questions related to my resume. 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 and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Sempra Energy in September 2009.

Interview Question – Demonstrate SQL, Excel, any programming language and relevant skills.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – 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.

Project Leader Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Sempra Energy in September 2007.

Interview Details – 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 Question – None.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – 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.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
North Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Sempra Energy in May 2009.

Interview Details – 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 Question – What do you know about our organization?   Answer Question

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