    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric.

    Interview

    The interview process was very organized because it was centrally managed by a recruiter who was easy to reach and helpful. I had applied for another role simultaneously and she communicated with both teams to time the interviews appropriately and find the best fit for me. The interview with the hiring manager was very basic and straightforward. We primarily discussed my relevant prior roles.

    Interview

    Got an email for an online video recording interview. On the online site, you will be presented a pre-recorded question and you record yourself answering those questions right after. It was about 5 or so behavioral questions that you get about a minute to answer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The first part of the interview process is submitting answers to their questions via video. You have a set time to answer the given question (six in total). You can redo it as many times as you want but overall it is a little awkward doing the interview and I would have much preferred an in-person or a phone call interview. The overall experience could have been better by making the future candidates feel more comfortable.

    Mapping Technician Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric (San Ramon, CA).

    Interview

    Streamlined and easy. Apply, then wait for email to do test, then interview! The people who interviewed me were intelligent and down to earth, and I was very comfortable discussing my background to them. They seemed to agree because I was offered a position. If you're offered a job however, it comes with a full background and previous employment verification by an outside company. You must also do a drug screen within 72 business hours from the offer. I passed everything but the drug screen (THC). It's not an outside lineman job, so HR advised me that I could be reconsidered again, if and only if, I submit certification of having completed minimum 30-day "substance abuse" treatment. Lol, please. This just doesn't fly for someone with actual medical conditions for which cannabis is used as an ideal treatment, as opposed to Big Pharma. It's a freaking mapping job ffs, and I've digitized PG&Es maps before (a nearly year long project). Why don't they go after the pill poppers, tweakers, and drunks instead? When will society learn to steer away from blanket rules?
    Revise your drug policies for office folks, PG&E!
