    Pros

    Some of the best people work for this company. PG&E believes in growing its employees and believes in compensating them accordingly. Very good benefits and my commute from the East Bay is awesome.

    Cons

    Communication between the contracting agency and the department I was hired in seeded a little lacking. I was told one start date, but started sooner and had to end a contract I was on early. Wasn't a big deal, but not an ideal situation either.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric.

    Interview

    I had a recorded online interview followed by an over the phone interview. The whole process took about 4 weeks. I got a call back within two weeks and then an offer within a week after the second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I had a recorded interview over my computer. A prerecorded question was asked and I had 1 minute to prepare and 2 minutes to answer. The questions were on the order of "Why do you want to work at PG&E?", "Tell me about a time that you overcame a challenge", and "Give an example of how you made a project better".   Answer Question
