    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Golden State Water Company in May 2009.

    Interview

    Panel interview. Questions basic and expected. Already determined to hire external candidate no matter what. I had been trained for the position for more than 5 years, but then my bosses were fired and I became a persona non-grata.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a pity interview, I would have preferred to have been declined an interview.   Answer Question
