Interview Details – I've interviewed with PG&E three times. Three phone screens and, in two cases, a followup interview at HQ with the hiring manager. Nothing particularly challenging in any of the interviews, very standard questions: Why PG&E, Why this job, Tell me about yourself. The interviewers were pleasant, but kind of vanilla. Very run-of-the mill interviews. I've had credit card applications that were more interesting. The Marketing Dept. is in a lot of flux, they've cut a lot of dead wood and are trying to become more consumer oriented. The people there seemed more concerned with keeping their own jobs. It felt like a government office - slow and cumbersome.
In all three cases, no one ever bothered to get back to me afterwards, even when I was told I'd be coming back again. The only time I ever managed to get a response was when I left pointed voicemails asking about my status.
