    I have been working at Socalgas full-time (More than 10 years)


    The people are definitely the best. Committed. Caring. Hard-working. It's like family. And the culture of the company is focused on the people too. Unlike our competitor, SoCalGas does not have routine lay-offs. We invest in the community we serve. Our employees are engaged and show up at volunteer opportunities to help give back. Our employees have integrity, care and concern to do the right thing for our customers and the community. I have worked here for over 20 years and am so proud of our employees! #TeamSoCalGas


    Resources can be scarce, so work-life balance can sometimes be a challenge too.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clear vision of where we're heading and communicate how employees can help!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Socalgas (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.


    There was a phone screen followed by an in-person interview. The phone screen included more technical, job-specific questions and the in person interview focused more on the soft skills.
