Mid-size utility that's nimble enough to deploy industry best practices.
Lack of transperancy and totally devoid of managerial courage; go along to get along.
Advice to Management
Toughen up and focus on the basics of running a gas and electric utility or you'll end up in the discard pile.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Puget Sound Energy (Bothell, WA) in April 2015.
It was a 2-man interview panel, with an assessment/test after interview. The panel had a list of questions, mostly regarding situations in my previous job that would apply to the PSE position. They also asked about salary requirements. Lastly, they asked which locations were preferred as offices that I may potentially be based out of.
