    Senior Engineer Intern II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Had an insider in the company who recommended me to a hiring manager. I was called and asked if I wanted to come in for an interview. It was a panel interview with 3 engineers asking basic behavioral questions. Everyone was really nice and everything went really smooth. I was 1 of 4 students with company insiders being interviewed, so there was no special treatment. About a week later I was contacted by HR asking if I would accept the job.

    Customer Service Representative -4 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Dimas, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Dimas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Socalgas in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the bilingual customer service representative. The next day I received an email requesting my attendance for a testing opportunity. I accepted and showed up to testing. The test consisted of three parts: Yellow Baseline Testing, Personality Test and a CSR Response Testing. The Yellow Baseline testing required knowledge in proper grammar/sentence structure, simple math calculations and word problems. If you pass the baseline testing, you move on to the personality test. This test would reveal your personality type. If you pass the personality test, you move on to the CSR Response testing. This activity consists of you listening to a call and how you would handle the customer by choosing one of 6 options. Pretty straight forward testing and you find out your results that day. Testing probably took 3 hours to complete.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of the testing phase is the CSR Response Testing because you had many options to choose from. Some may be borderline correct and some were pretty evident.   Answer Question

    Region Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downey, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downey, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Socalgas.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of a hiring panel of three managers from different departments. It was a bit of a cattle call with a number of candidates filing through. There were two sets of interviews going on with different hiring panels. I got the sense that they interview many candidates regularly and if a manager is interested they will select that person. It is like an audition. It was as if the hiring managers didn't pre-screen the applications. The questions were not technical. They asked a lot of "what if" questions. They focused on situational questions.

    I was disappointed that I didn't get an offer. One of the hiring managers kept making comments about how well I could fit into his work group.

    Senior Engineer Intern II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Socalgas in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was much easier than I anticipated. It was my first professional interview and although I thought I didn't do very well, it helped boost my confidence and helped me get a good feel for the interviewing process.

    There were two Associate Engineers and their Engineering Supervisor. The questions were very basic. They included things such as "How did you handle a disagreement with a supervisor?" Most questions essentially boiled down to "How did you handle [insert situation]?" Always past tense.

    After all of the behavioral questions, there were two technical questions. These went something like this "What are the variables in Bernoulli's Equation?" and "What factors can affect the pressure of a fluid through a pipe with constant diameter?"

    All three of the Engineers that were interviewing were very welcoming and made the interviewing process that much easier.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions to me, were the behavioral questions. They give you a scenario and ask you to discuss how you handled the situation. In other words, they expect to hear that you have encountered a similar or identical situation and ask you to explain how you overcame it. It was difficult because it involved thinking very fast and trying to conform that scenario to something I had previously experienced.   Answer Question
