    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Rosemead, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email for testing. I studied the required practice tests-spelling/grammer, sorting/classification and math. There was about 15 attending for the test. I received an email that same day which said I "failed" the test. I inquired by email what my test score was and they responded that THEY DO NOT DISCLOSE the test scores. One thing I did do was fill out an optional questionair which asked for my date of birth. I am 61 and do not look it. I've also worked for top Executives and doubt that I failed the test. I have spoken to others that have had the same experience and this seems to be a pattern. There is definately age discrimination going on here. I know I did well on the test. Read the interveiw reviews, most seem to be just out of college. Hmm.
