    Submitted application before deadline and received a phone call scheduling an interview a few weeks later. I had an interview with the supervisor and an associate. The entire interview was very calming and technical questions were too difficult

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Los Angeles Water and Power.

    Interview

    A very broad description of qualifications on the job posting landed me interviewing for a position I was not a suitable fit for. There was absolutely no visibility into the interview process beyond being told it would consist of a panel interview and writing test. There was no initial phone interview or conversation prior to the panel interview in which I was able to gauge my interest level in the position. I contemplated canceling my interview altogether as I did not feel it was fair that I was in no way able to prepare. Furthermore, for having such broad qualifications the interview questions were very specific to the job. The whole process was incredibly uncomfortable and embarrassing to be honest.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Outrightly Negative Experience. Had 2 people on the panel asking questions from a printed paper. One of the Interviewers was ridiculously rude and disrespectful. I could hear him take deep breaths while looking at me and I realized at that point that I was just wasting my time and that killed my moral. I regretted all the days and nights of research, energy, and study I put towards the interview. Waste of time! Sheer discrimination. They obviously have the people they want to give the Job to.
    I waited for 7 weeks before I got a response saying I was not selected.
