    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at California Public Utilities Commission (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I took the exam in December and did not get an interview until April. It took two weeks for me to be notified that I was awarded the position.

    The interview was conducted with a panel of two people. There are four questions and the interview is intended to last around 30 minutes; although, my interview was a bit shorter. As for the questions, I cannot disclose the specifics, but be familiar with the job description and look up common interview questions online, with that you will be set. The panel of interviewers are patient, so do not be afraid to ask for clarification, and do not be afraid to take a bit of time to frame your responses if you are caught off-guard (Taking a second to think looks better than constantly stuttering or saying "um").
