    Region Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Downey, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downey, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Socalgas.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of a hiring panel of three managers from different departments. It was a bit of a cattle call with a number of candidates filing through. There were two sets of interviews going on with different hiring panels. I got the sense that they interview many candidates regularly and if a manager is interested they will select that person. It is like an audition. It was as if the hiring managers didn't pre-screen the applications. The questions were not technical. They asked a lot of "what if" questions. They focused on situational questions.

    I was disappointed that I didn't get an offer. One of the hiring managers kept making comments about how well I could fit into his work group.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Socalgas.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process began with a college recruiter being interested in your resume, passing it along to hiring managers that may or may not call you based on your qualifications. Most likely, you resume enters the employment system at SoCal Gas where, as positions become available, various hiring managers will find your resume and call you in for an interview. First step is an online personality test. In-person interview was a group/panel setting and questions asked were all behavioral question: focus on team building, toughest challenge, leadership ability.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Socalgas in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received an interview for an internship with Socalgas. I arrived and was greeted by the person I had previously spoken to and one other person. The interview was about 45 minutes to an hour and consisted of questions about my resume and standard behavioral questions. The interview went well and they told me they were just waiting for the position to be rejustified. After several inconclusive back and forth emails, contact with the company stopped.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Socalgas in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had my group panel interview in early April. The questions had nothing to do with engineering and were more situational and personality questions. The people didnt seem interested from the being evn though i had a 3.5 gpa and had applicable internship experience. They did not pay attention to my responses and the hr people there are really fake and unprofessional. I emailed the hr department to get an estimate of a timeline of when canadiates would be informed of there choice but to my surprise they did not respond and after a month and half i recieved a rejection email. Overall the interviewers were rude and the HR department completely unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Socalgas in December 2009.
