I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at California Public Utilities Commission.
Interview Details – Very informal--probably due to the fact that I had specific experience in the area they were hiring for. I applied to the summer internship program and heard nothing for the longest time. Then, right before I was about to take another job, the supervisor called me and asked me a few questions. Nothing very hard-hitting or put-me-on-the-spot. He told me about the project he wanted me to work on. Asked me if I was interested, I said yes and that's how it went.
Negotiation Details – It was a little difficult to negotiate with HR. After much back and forth I was able to qualify for an additional dollar an hour ;-}
Interviewed at California Public Utilities Commission
Interview Details – This was just a typical hiring process. It is government, so nothing unexpected should come up. It wouldn't hurt to know energy industry and legal jargon, though ignorance of this stuff is not a deal-breaker. The advice is the same as any interview: be intelligent and interested in the position.
Interview Question – All common stuff. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at California Public Utilities Commission in January 2012.
Interview Details – I interviewed with three people. They told me about CPUC and then proceeded to ask me about my resume. Try to research the CPUC beforehand (most people don't know much about its function) since it would be really helpful. Other than that, the interview was pretty laidback. Workplace is business casual.
