    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cupertino Electric (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Long and arduous, almost painful. they spent a lot of time blowing their own horn. I was not sure if they were doing so because they were desperate to fill the position or were simply arrogant or both. It was very odd and uncomfortable. It gave me the feeling they were not being totally honest or forthright.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They came in low and then when I declined, they begrudgingly came up to area average.

    Interview

    You interview with the local union of your area then get randomly sent to a contractor. It is luck of the draw getting picked up by a good shop. Large shops have some benefits that small shops don't.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cupertino Electric (Cupertino, CA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Actually interviewed in Summer of 2007
    Interviewed on campus (1 on 1) was asked to come to Cupertino to talk to 3-4 people. HR mgr showed me around the office and shop. Met with head of estimating (your first department as a trainee), operations guy, and head of San Francisco office. Then met with president of company. All were very interesting and the interview felt low pressure and nice. I have an electrical background, this is a very technical company, so if you know nothing about electrical, it's probably not a great fit for you.
    Process took all day 8-5. Was actually fun (for an interview).

    Reasons for Declining

    Decided that I didn't want to live in Silicon Valley. Wish I had made the move now that the economic depression is upon us.
