    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irwindale, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Irwindale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Southern California Edison in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    3 person panel interview with "Round Robin" type questions. I was handed a sheet with several detailed questions on it. Interview began with a briefy overview of the company then they started with the questioning. I answered lots of questions, they did a lot of writing, asking for more details on occasion. Everyone was nice, but formal. Interview went well (I think), but I didn't get to show all of my portfolio pieces. After one hour, I was thanked and I went on my way. No discussion of salary or when they might make a decision.

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example of a project that had overlapping timelines with another project. How did you resolve it? Include instances where you had a difficult time communicating with either employees or customers. How did you deal with it?   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Irwindale, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Southern California Edison in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very quick and professional with regard to the recruitment aspects, initially good communication, however this dropped off naturally once the interviews and assessments were completed.

    The interview itself was a constant round of interruptions which disrupted the flow of the interview, usual problems with finding rooms so it was conducted in a communal area.

    Vert little feedback following the assessment and interview, however overall a positive learning experience, role was offered to a more qualified candidate..ce la vie.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Southern California Edison in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very structured, not much room for creative conversation. They had their list of questions to ask and that was it, none of my replies sparked any follow-up questions.
    Very short replies to my questions about the company, culture, challenges. They seemed very tight-lipped.
