    Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Con Edison of New York in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    First of all, was given the wrong address but was able to figure out where to go. A security guard at the gate was unaware of me having an interview and refused to let me in or call. A manager who was supposed to interview me could not be reached by phone. I waited outside for an hour to get a call back and to be escorted to the office. The interview itself was pretty much a standard one with general questions. In my opinion it went quite well especially because of my background/experience in management working for an energy company. I tried to follow up a few times and last time I spoke with a section manager she got annoyed of me calling back. Needless to say I never heard from them. One year after that I checked ConEd website and found the same job posted there. A few other jobs I found there in 2013 were posted again in 2014 so I am not sure if they rehire annually or those are "fake" jobs. Personally, this was a very bad experience for me.

    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.

    Questions were pretty standard; basic questions about the resume, knowledge about the company; strengths and weaknesses. They wrote down the answers they had on a sheet of paper. They asked whether I knew MS Office, so you might want to put that down especially.
