    I have been working at Puget Sound Energy full-time (more than an year)


    Great company with dedicated co workers. Plenty of room for improvement and they are working towards just that.


    Past managers and directors created a culture of mistrust and current employees hold onto those experiences.

    I applied online – interviewed at Puget Sound Energy.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview about 45 mins in length, and the next week a face to face interview with the team I'd be working with. The phone interview was very basic (skills, qualifications, case study) and the face to face was more of a pinpoint Q&A based on the job. The building is very nice and the attire is business casual.
