    Pros

    Supervisors are easy to get along with for the most part, and their guidance is fairly specific. Access to leadership is wide open, such that talking to Commissioners or general counsel is almost a weekly occurrence. The atmosphere is laid back, which is a good thing until there are problems. Some very smart, experienced people work at the CPUC.

    Cons

    Sometimes there wasn't enough work to keep myself occupied, and other times, the workload was onerous. Also, there can be a sense of being lost in a government bureaucracy at the CPUC.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recommending that employees, from top to bottom, continue to attend the Commission meetings, as they are unifying and gratifying.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at California Public Utilities Commission in January 2015.

    Interview

    In order to be eligible for the interview, you'll need to take a simple engineering test. It's mostly what they teach in physics and basic electronic stuff. Once you passed the test, you'll be able to apply for positions as it becomes available. The positions vary within the commision, but be ready for a lengthy wait before they respond to you. From the time I applied for the testing to my first interview was 3 1/2 months.

    Interview Questions

    • 4 questions, you get a few minutes to review them. It's all mostly about qualifications and fit. There wasn't any personality questions.   1 Answer
