    Information Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bakersfield, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Aera Energy (Bakersfield, CA).

    Interview

    I was in a contract position to hire. The interview was with HR only, which is not typical. Normally the hiring manager, supervisor, and a few team members will be present. HR is rarely a participant in interviews. I only had one interview, which is not normal either. Most managers conduct several interviews. The hiring process took 6 months, but that was due to bulk hiring at the time. Onboarding does take months.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Aera Energy.

    Interview

    They came to the college and basically talked about the company's work culture and how much they focus on community involvement. I would suggest that you mention your volunteer skills in your resume because they really care about that sort of stuff. The lady from HR basically told us what they expect from their workers and very helpful in the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty straightforward and nothing unexpected. They asked questions like "What is your biggest accomplishment?" and "Why Aera?"   Answer Question

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Aera Energy.

    Interview

    I talked to one of the recruiters at my university career fair, and I was the first call-back after the event. I signed up for an interview time slot for the next day, where I was interviewed by a panel of 3 senior engineers, each with a different position/specialty in the field. They requested that I come with copies of my resume and transcript for each of my interviewers. They were all extremely friendly, and it was a very comfortable dialogue. It was an open conversation, and I think it was a very positive and genuine reflection of their small company culture. At the end of the interview, they told me that it would be the only interview I would need to do in order to be considered for the position.
