    Mapping Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric in April 2015.

    Interview

    This is not an appropriate question because I came through an agency. Since there is a thirty word minimum I do not know what else to say here. I feel like I am being dragged through extra work by your company just to see a salary for a job.
