Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Los Angeles Water and Power (Davis, CA) in November 2016.

Interview

Applied through university and interviewed at university.

Interviewed with two people that were both very friendly. Both of them went back and forth asking questions that were mostly behavioral and a few technical.

After interview it supposedly takes weeks for you to get a score out of 100 with a 70 and above to be considered adequate for a position, which then leads to the second interview.

    Interview

    Interviewed by two males. Asked some basic questions and a few power questions. They seem to prefer students or applicants who have their EIT. The interviewers were very nice and who try to give you hints for a few of the answers if you really need help.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you had to work on a team and not everyone got along. How did you handle the situation?

      How would you apply the usage of a transformer in practice?

      Tell me about an issue you encountered with a short circuit and how did you deal with the situation?   Answer Question
