I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric in March 2010.
Interview Details – I got to the 3rd round (with the hiring manager) and was not given an offer. The interview was 90% behavioral questions, asking you about your communication skills, conflict resolution skills, analytical skills, etc. They asked you to answer using the STAR (Situation, Task, Action and Resolution) format. It was very structured and professional.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric in September 2010.
Interview Details – I received a call on a Tuesday & was interviewed on the following Thursday. PG&E uses the STAR inteview process, where you describe results of a situation. Actually easier than usual interview questions. The interviewer actualll called me within a week to give me feedback. I did well except for I did not give good information re: the company culture. I was interviewed by 2 people. Both very professional and made me feel at ease. I liked the atmosphere in the office & I really wanted the job however I was advised that they hired internally. Make sure you do your homework on the company.
