    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles Water and Power (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus with two interviewers. They asked questions straight out of their interview question sheet and I was graded accordingly. Simple behavioral questions with some very easy fundamental technical questions. You need 80+ score to get a chance for second round interview. It takes forever for these people to process your interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Los Angeles Water and Power (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is very slow. You have to take a test or have an initial interview to determine your score. After a few weeks, you receive your score and at which point, different departments can refer you. Then you have to wait for another interview that can take up to weeks. It's a very slow process, however very structured.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles Water and Power (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through the city website. There are two interviews. The first is the most important: you will be interviewed by a panel of three people. Will be asked both personal and technical questions. Interview lasts about 30 minutes. The job is very competitive as you will NOT be the only one there. It's almost like an assembly line type of appearance. Weeks later you will receive a score based on your interview. Your score, along with all of the others that interviewed, will be put on a list where other city jobs can also contact you. So in interviewing for this job you are also putting yourself out there for other companies/locations to contact you based on your score. To hear back from ANYONE you need to get a score of 90 or better and even with a 90 you will be waiting a while.

    After the score you will be asked to verify that you have graduated & show proof of EIT (if you have it).

    If you are called back from DWP, you will go to a different location for an interview that is mostly completely technical. Within two weeks after this interview you should be informed of an offer or not.
