    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Gas and Electric.

    Interview

    Applied via company's internal website. Was contacted by a recruiter who asked general questions and set up an interview. In-person interview with 2 managers. Focused on experiences using the STAR method. Questions were challenging, meaningful, and afforded me the opportunity to highlight my abilities. Interviewers were engaged and seemed genuinely interested. They asked follow up questions to clarify my responses, and also asked questions based on my resume.
