I have been working at Sacramento Municipal full-time (More than 8 years)
SMUD overall is a great company. Compensation is competitive and they value their employees.
I would improve the hiring process and reduce the limited term internal jobs
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Sacramento Municipal.
I was invited to take a test at SMUD headquarters after applying for a position in the Treasury department.
The HR representative refused to tell me anything about the position and would not allow me to discuss the position with the hiring manager. I reluctantly agreed to take the test, which required Excel and Word and included questions mostly unrelated to Treasury. Most questions were highly subjective.
After 45 days, I received an impersonal response stating that I failed the test, but no other information.
Highly recommend avoiding blind onsite testing at SMUD - they do nothing to allow a potential employer to evaluate the position, management or fit. Don't waste your time here.
