    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SCE (Rosemead, CA) in April 2012.

    The hiring process was fairly simple. A lot of behavior questions with some experience and technical questions. Two rounds of interviews and a phone screen with recruiter. The first round of the interview was a panel with the hiring manager and two others. The second was a one on one with hiring manager's boss. The total time frame from beginning to end was roughly about 5 weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SCE.

    Interview

    dimensional interview process (google it).1. Why should we hire you?

    This is the quintessential question that deserves a great answer. If the candidate can show you without a doubt that he or she must be sitting in that vacant chair come Monday morning, then the query has done its job.

    2. How would you spend your first day of work here?

    More than likely the candidate has played out this scenario in their head. This is their chance to show you how they would hit the ground running, and why they are a great cultural fit.

    3. If you could have chosen another career, what would it be and why?

    This question sounds arbitrary, but in reality it helps build a three-dimensional view of the candidate. More often than not the answer will be truly surprising and the exact opposite of what they’re doing (or would like to be doing) currently.

    4. How do you define success?

    Success may be something as small as getting a nod of approval from the boss or fixing the copy machine. But some people will tell you they have much bigger ideas of success. If you’re looking for a very ambitious person, or your organization has a specific definition of success, the answer to this will play an important role in your decision.

    5. If you caught your boss doing something illegal, what would you do?

    Yes, this question is sneaky and dangerous, but it will divulge a lot about your candidate – including their views on loyalty, trust, honesty, business ethics and responsibility.

    Interview Questions

    • 6. If you could be any superhero, who would it be and why?

      This question not only acts as an icebreaker, but also gives you perspective on the candidate’s innermost aspirations – and a sense of how far they are willing to dream – even if it is only a fantasy.

      7. Tell me an appropriate joke.

      A well-known financial investment firm uses this question in their interviews, mainly because it’s great for sales reps and always puts people at ease. It can also help employers determine if the potential employee has a similar sense of humor – a great indicator of a lasting partnership   Answer Question
