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.
“We did it. It was hard, but we did it. We are now part of the PG&E workforce.” No truer words were spoken by Christopher Caldwell, one of 24 people who recently graduated from Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s PowerPathway Entry to Electric Operations cohort, held at Oakland’s Cypress Mandela Training Center. They begin their new careers as IBEW Local 1245 Hiring Hall coworkers in electric field operations, general construction, and substations. Congratulations to our November 2023 PowerPathway graduates!

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!

I was offered a contract job at PG&E. There are some red flags (apart from my dream job) and I wanted to make sure that I was not being scammed before I give my information to the contract agency. I tried LinkedIn but I need to be a premium member to message anyone from the company. I tried calling but most phone numbers go to the services lines. Can anyone help me? PG&E
