    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Puget Sound Energy.

    Interview

    I used an employee referral as a way to connect with PSE. A hiring manager contacted me by phone and had me come in to meet with the team personally. A couple weeks later I met with the hiring manager for a 30 minute interview followed by a second interview with the subordinates. The subordinates explained their roles at PSE and asked some behaviorial questions based on my prior work experience. Overall the experience was postive and I learned a lot about PSE and the employees seemed like they enjoyed their experiences.

    Network Security Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Puget Sound Energy (Redmond, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had an initial 30-40 minute phone screen. Later had an in person group interview with the hiring manager, his manager, and 3 team members. It sounded like normally there would have been some individual interviews. But since I was driving 4.5 hours it was one group interview, which was very considerate of them. The interviews were comfortable and the people easy to interact with.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined due to the overall salary and benefits. The initial offer came from the hiring manager and I was told one would come from HR after we "worked out the details". I countered the initial offer by 5k and was told there was no wiggle room in salary, though I was offered a signing bonus. The big factor on not accepting the offer was salary and how much Health Insurance costs would cut into the salary. For PPO coverage for a family it was going to be 11k annually out of my pocket, which is more than I'm paying now for a PPO, working at a smaller company than PSE.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Puget Sound Energy in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interview usually with 3 people, about a 45 minutes to 1 hour process. They ask mostly behavioral questions and a few questions about the basics of power. Also asked kind of off topic questions like "if you could have one superpower what would it be?" and "what is your favorite book". Seems like mostly looking for behavior during the interview.

    Interview

    Casual interview, went over resume and talked about experience. Very friendly. The interview was done by the supervisor and took less than 30 minutes. Typical questions like why do you want to work here, explain a work problem and how you resolved it, etc...I was contacted soon after and hired almost immediately.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Puget Sound Energy (Bellevue, WA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Very informal interview. Fact based questions based on resume and then behavioral questions like if you have a problem with your team member, how do you handle it? I was first contacted by email for scheduling the interview appointment. That followed with the telephonic interview. Since I did not pass it, I don't know what the future steps are.
