    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at San Diego Gas & Electric.

    Interview Details

    I met a of couple engineers and HR at my college career fair, where I gave them my resume and talked to one of them.. That night they called me and asked me to come in for an on-campus interview the next day. The interview questions were all behavioral questions. A week later they called me to schedule an in-person interview at the headquarters in San Diego. There were 6 interviewers, including someone taking you to lunch. They were very friendly and welcoming. The questions varied from behavioral, technical, and conversational.

    Never received an offer. I think it might have to do with the budget, so it's very disappointing.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for Interns is pretty straight forward. The actual interview starts when you arrive early, they will have a member of the panel sitting outside the interview room. This person functions as an ice breaker that calms you down , but is also interviewing you. Once they are ready for you, you go in and have the actual interview. This will be an interview that is comprised of behavioral questions. These questions look for a response in the STAR format, situation, task, action, result.

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example where you were in a group and you had a member who was not producing, how did you deal with this situation?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at San Diego Gas & Electric in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submit application online and, if selected by HR and improved by hiring manager, an interview will be arranged. It took a long time to get a response; don't be discouraged! It took 7 weeks for me to get a call from HR.

    I was told I would be interviewed by 2 people (my prospective boss and his boss), but there was a third person there when I arrived. He was their "technical" expert. All had the same list of questions to ask and took notes as I answered. It was nice, because it gave me a chance to relax and regroup as they were writing.

    Interview Questions
    • For me, being asked the last technical solution I recommended and implemented. As a project lead, I count on my team to come up with technical solutions. I facilitate, organize, inspire. This is not a technical role although they want someone with a technical background.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at San Diego Gas & Electric in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was suprisingly not technical at all. They explain to you that you need no technical knowledge but are seeing if you're a right fit for their culture. The questions consisted of general scenario questions and basic personality type questions. They have an HR Rep and two IT techs on their panel.
