    I have been working at EBMUD full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredibly employee-friendly organization. Great colleagues and incredible compensation and benefits. A leader in many areas of the industry and good, strategic management. As far as public agencies go, this is one of he best places to work.

    Cons

    Because of the great compensation relative to peer agencies, the main path for exit from the organization is retirement. Certain folks are disgruntled and unwilling to take ownership of their own careers in order to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the union leadership. Stay focused on health, safety, and compensation.

    Electrical Engineer Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at EBMUD.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview here and met with the water department. I interviewed for a summer internship with this department. The interviewing process went very well and the interviewer was very polite and made me relaxed. He asked 5 questions, all very simple to answer so long as you answer truthfully. The questions were along the lines of what are you interested in, what do you look to get out of this job, and some other situational questions. A very easy interview and a great company.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question wasn't really a difficult question. They were looking for someone who had experience programming in Matlab and I do not like to program in Matlab.   Answer Question
