    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at San Diego Gas & Electric (San Diego, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Just two steps involved, which is short for a corporate job nowadays. I was called in for an initial interview, which included a test of my skill set and going over some previous work samples I brought along. The second interview involved a colleague with whom I'd end up working frequently and closely, and that was it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at San Diego Gas & Electric (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    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

    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.
