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