    I have been working at Baker Electric full-time (Less than a year)


    - Interview process was very friendly and yet professional and thorough. I met with both of the supervisors I would be working with and they explained all details of what my job would entail.
    - The entire environment of this company is welcoming and friendly, and Baker shows how much they care about their employees everyday by the actions they take.


    - The only con I can think of at this moment is this company does not provide a free puppy upon employment. :( But I am willing to live with that I guess :)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Electric (Escondido, CA) in June 2019.


    Spoke with Talent Acquisition coordinator on the phone, after the phone interview I had a face to face interview with the department supervisor. A week later they called me in for a panel interview. The interview itself wasn't stressful and during the process everyone was very transparent as far as timelines went so I didn't feel like I was in the dark about each step of the process.

    A few days after the Panel interview I was offered the position and the company culture is the same.
