    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at San Antonio Water System (San Antonio, TX) in May 2014.

    Interview

    SAWS has a list of questions that they ask for different departments. Most of them are typical interview question. Above & Beyond, what is your advantages & weaknesses?, etc. Project Engineer, EIT, HR were in the room. Most of the time if you can get in a conversation with them during the interview it breaks up the monotony of the process. It worked for me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at San Antonio Water System in June 2011.

    Interview

    Took 3 months from the application to walking through the door. Began with a phone interview which the HR rep at the time was hard to get ahold of after she asked me to call her back although she was very friendly when I did talk with her. It was a 4 panel discussion composed of an HR executive, the Director of the dept. I'd be working for, the Director of Customer Svc dept. and a Manager of one of the construction crew teams. Quite intimidating but very fair, a representative there from each dept. I'd most likely be working with.

    Interview Questions

    • Not having an extensive background of what I was applying for, I had to convince the panel how I would benefit SAWS with the other type of experience I held.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Asked for more but was stated an offer by HR to take or leave it
