Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Riverside, CA) in June 2015.

Interview

It was a standard panel interview with three people plus their internal compliance officer. The Human Resources representative facilitated a time written assessment immediately after the interview.

Had time to observe the internal office environment. as the panel was running 20 - 30 minutes behind schedule.

Would recommend to future candudates to take relevant project work sample.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Rosemead, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Tell us a time when you flipped upside down, caught a football, your mom called and you happened to win the lottery? Many of the questions are silly and do not seek the most valuable info they should be seeking to obtain the best candidate. The process seems to have been created in the early 1900's and is still in place today...

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter, who had discovered my resume on one of the employment websites. The interview process took about an hour and I was approached with an offer fairly quickly after that.

    Negotiation

    The HR person that called me discouraged me from asking for more money so I only asked for $2500 more than the original offer when I really wanted to ask for more. My counter-offer was excepted

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Irwindale, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Straight forward interview process. Was given appointment at the Irwindale office and was met with two person interview panel. The interviewers were personable and it did not feel as stressful as other interviews I have been on for PM positions. The interviewers were very open and let me know I was the first of ten candidates they were interviewing. The position was to manage IT projects so some of the questions involved technical experience as well as managing projects and teams.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Irwindale, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Entire interview was based on situational events. Tell me about a time when.......etc. How would you conduct a gap analysis and what you would do with that information. Interview panel consisted of two people and was very relaxed, not super formal.

    Interview Questions

    • The multiple part questions were difficult to follow. You can take notes when they ask the questions so that helps.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Rosemead, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process was okay. The lady that talked to me on the phone was nice and polite. We did some back-and-forth for salary and hiring bonus, which I got most of what I wanted. The interview was VERY long and the questions were really convaluded. By the time they were done asking the question, I had to ask them to repeat and take notes on it.

    Interview Questions

    • The hardest question was difficult because it limited my response to a specific type of experience, along with being multi-part; it had to do with being a member of a team to accomplish a project in which team members disagreed on the product.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Rosemead, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Phone screens with recruiter or hiring manager are first step. Second step is in-person interview. At times may use video-conference. Have a variety of interview techniques however they use structured, behavioral interviews for all positions including for the executive level. Interviewers are scheduled to consense by end of day. Also use assessment centers, work samples, knowledge tests, aptitude tests, and technical interviews depending on the role.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you were required to make a decision with prior precedent or policy in place. What data or information did you rely on? What decision did you make? How did you communicate it? What was the result or outcome of your decision? Would you make the same decision again?   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Southern California Edison (Irwindale, CA) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Very structured, not much room for creative conversation. They had their list of questions to ask and that was it, none of my replies sparked any follow-up questions.
    Very short replies to my questions about the company, culture, challenges. They seemed very tight-lipped.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Southern California Edison.

    Interview

    Difficult to join unless you come from California State Universities or other reputed schools.
    Panel of people will take your interview if you are trainee or experienced professional. Typically you need to work as a contractor in order to be hired. Difficult to get hired directly here.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They will give you a number and you have to accept it as it is not employee's market and SCE knows it.
