    Positive Outlook
    Positive Outlook


    Top-notch benefits, work-life balance, folks with great interpersonal skills, fulfilling work, pay rate higher than industry. Some innovative work.


    Convoluted hiring and promotion process can mean stagnation in your career for a long time. Especially at entry or journey level. Training is limited to policies/procedures instead of job and leadership skills. Organization is very risk-averse.

    Advice to Management

    First-line supervisor position tends to be very stressful and lack mentorship. More support and training of leadership and management skills would be useful.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at EBMUD.


    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
