    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Socalgas (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The way SoCal Gas set up the assessment test is ridiculous. I felt like I was taking the SAT, but only worst. This company is basically the gas company version of McKinsey & Company Inc. They only hire the smartest people also known as the people with the most talent.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Socalgas (Downey, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process began with a college recruiter being interested in your resume, passing it along to hiring managers that may or may not call you based on your qualifications. Most likely, you resume enters the employment system at SoCal Gas where, as positions become available, various hiring managers will find your resume and call you in for an interview. First step is an online personality test. In-person interview was a group/panel setting and questions asked were all behavioral question: focus on team building, toughest challenge, leadership ability.

    Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Compton, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Socalgas (Compton, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Got interviewed for Associate Engineer twice among 3 years. First time just one interview at Energy Resource Center in Downey, and no second interview. Second time I got the second interview at Compton. Basically for all interviews, just tell me about yourself, why we should hire you and all other behavioral questions in a SHARE format. I doubt how much my answers to these behavioral questions can affect their hiring decisions. Especially for the second time, I didn't prepare much but I was selected for the second interview; while I didn't get the offer after a great performance on the second interview. In my experience, their hiring decisions are a little random.
