    Production Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Con Edison of New York.

    Interview Details

    The atmosphere was extremely positive! Talking to the employees makes you feel as though you have already been hired!! I was very comfortable. After submitting an online application for the position I waited about a month or so and was contacted via telephone by recruitment to schedule an examination. If you fail you can retake it in approx. 6 months. After passing I was contacted again in about two weeks to schedule an interview. There were 3 people interviewing me: HR, Manager, and Supervisor. All were very nice and friendly and mixed in age. The questions asked were very straightforward. Focus was on my past experiences and how they related to the position (direct questions) and the questions were mostly behavioral (i.e. how would you behave if you had to work with someone you didn't get along with).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Con Edison of New York.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the University Job Board.
    Starts with a phone interview which asks you basic programming questions and some thinking questions such as how to determine if something is the cause of accidents on a stretch of road and how you would go about it.
    After that it goes to an in person interview which I think would be with around 3 different people but I didn't even get passed the first one.
