I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Southern California Edison in May 2010.

Interview Details It was 1 interview, about an hour long. 4 or 5 Engineering managers present. Dress professionally, most interviewers are in suit/tie. Study HR type questions for interview. Know an example of when you worked on a team, when you had a conflict and how you resolved it, why do you want to work at Edison.

Engineer I Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Santa Ana, CA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Southern California Edison in October 2009.

Interview Details H.R. contacted me via email asking if I would be available for an interview within the week. Since I had not formally applied to a position, I was a little surprised. It turned out my resume was pulled from recruitment fair. Since this was a fair recruitment, a job description was not provided. Edison interviews you once at a job location, and that is usually it.

The interview consist of two parts, first the STAR interview, and then a technical interview. The technical interview relates to technical information about the job. Edison’s STAR approach is a little different than most, they do not ask you to call upon your previous experience, instead they provide a situation with numerous detail, and ask to solve the problem. In many incidences the interviewers will expand and adlib to the original question, turning the interview into a role-play situation.
