I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Southern California Edison in March 2010.

Interview Details – after submitting my profile and the necessary document on the school website, I was contacted by a recruiting manager within the week. We immediately had a phone interview, which lasted approximately 20 minutes. The questions weren't overly tough and was definitely manageable. The recruiter said he would be in touch within a few days, and voila, he offers me an interview spot the next day.
My in house interview was with a panel of 3 individuals and each had a pre-defined list of questions to ask. many many many many MANY behavioral questions and a total of 3 questions regarding BASIC accounting terms. The whole interview process lasted approximately 2 hours and I got fairly good feedbacks from them.

The process took a day - interviewed at Southern California Edison in January 2010.

Interview Details – Basically I applied through my university career website and submitted my resume. After a week, I got a email stating that I am chosen to do a phone interview. Couple of days later I get the call.
1. Why do you want to work for SCE?
2. How did you handle a very stubborn/ irritated customer?
3. Describe yourself.
4. Would you consider yourself analytical? what ways?

Most of the questions were behavioral.. That was it! I didn't have to go through an actual 1:1 interview and was hired through the phone interview. I heard if they really needed interns, they will just conduct a phone interview.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself doing at SCE?   Answer Question
