    I worked at Sacramento Municipal full-time (more than 3 years)


    The leadership at SMUD excels in promoting talent, providing mentorships, ensuring integrity, and rewarding hard work. Compensation packages are fantastic


    Decision making from leadership is often slow. Personnel/resources are hard to obtain for all the work.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sacramento Municipal in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    There is an unnecessarily long selection process that takes place when they are hiring Customer Service Representatives. After taking a written test, being interviewed on the phone and going to their offices to be personally met, I have to say it was a decent experience in terms of the way they organized. Unfortunately I got a very bad impression from them since the person in charge of the appointment messed up the time we were supposed to meet at, which ended up with me being late to my interview. No apologies, instead she refused to accept what happened. I recommend you are very careful, confirm the time of your interview if you get to that point and make sure you have an email that proves you did.
