As a PG&E recruiter, Theresa Stewart helps ensure that hiring decisions aren't based on characteristics such as race, color, and religion. Theresa, who is Native American (part Paiute and part Mescalero Apache), vividly remembers the prejudice her father faced when he was looking for a job. Before that experience, Theresa never knew she and her family were different from others or that discrimination existed. For this reason (and more), she takes so much pride in her work at PG&E. Theresa shares her personal story in honor of Native American Heritage Month.

Chief Executive Officer

First off, I am not a CEO, no matter what I change, my employment title does not update on this app. That said, I have an interview Wednesday for a Principal Financial Management Analyst role within the Program/Project Governance area with PG&E. I have had many Program Management interviews with PG&E but no offer so far, and have been unemployed for a VERY long time. If anyone has any PG&E info that can assist with my interview process and increase my chance of an offer, I would appreciate it!
