    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Irwindale, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and received a phone call from the recruiter the following week to discuss the job details and answer some general questions regarding my background and experience. The following week I had a second round panel interview over the phone with members from the team to discuss my technical skill sets. I came in for a third round in-person panel interview approximately 2 weeks later which included the people from the telephone interview, the hiring manager, and a business partner. This 1 hour interview composed of multiple cycles of scripted questions asked by each member from the panel. The questions were primarily behavioral/situation based. I didn't find the questions too difficult to answer because I was able to respond with a real example from previous work experiences. The challenge was staying up with the pace of the questions being asked. Once I made it through the interview, I felt pretty good about the experience. If I could offer one piece of advice, it would be to maintain a good relationship with the recruiter. The recruiter kept me in the loop through each phase of the process and I made sure to follow up on a regular basis leading up to the final job offer.

    Straight forward interview process. Was given appointment at the Irwindale office and was met with two person interview panel.
