    Associate Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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

    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!

    Safety Incident Investigator, Senior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric (San Ramon, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First phone screening went well, then nothing. First phone screening happened again for same job. Got me to phone interview. Phone interview led to in-person interview. This is where it starts going south. The email inviting me to the interview stated that the time and date could not be changed due to the schedules of the interview panel. This should have been a red flag. No consideration was given to my schedule or availability on that date.
    Was required to submit a writing sample on a subject that they would provide. I needed to ask twice for them to send me the subject, which they finally sent me three days before he interview.
    Took off time from work to fly to Oakland for the live interview, which lasted about 90 minutes with 3 people. The interviewers were very pleasant, professional, and seemed to be very knowledgeable. There were no trick questions, and I didn't hear a single buzzword the whole time.
    I left with a very positive feeling about the interview and the interviewers.
    After no contact for about two weeks, I got a computer-generated email telling me that the requisition had been cancelled. No phone call. Not even an email from an actual person. After taking the trouble to go there on their schedule with no consideration for mine, and after foregoing about $1000 in lost wages for the days off, I felt that the courtesy of a phone call was very little to expect from professionals. I didn't get it.
    Submitted the required form for reimbursement of my travel expenses. No check for over a month. Called to inquire. Was told that the reimbursement had been approved, but still no check, no call back telling me when to expect it. Still waiting for the check. It's been almost 8 weeks now.
