    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).

    First I had an on campus interview with one of the graduates of the gold program from my school. The interview was very basic and not very difficult. A week later I was told I had an interview in Manhattan at their corporate headquarters. I arrived and was escorted upstairs where I was interviewed by two people who asked me questions about my engineering background and wanted to know about my past experiences. They also asked various situational based questions. Two weeks after the interview I received a email for the personality exam and one month after taking the exam I was told I had been selected.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Con Edison of New York in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was very smooth and methodical. I applied online on a Monday and I was sent an email that Friday requesting an interview for that coming Monday - I accepted the interview time that they requested.

    I then interviewed with 2 people who asked a series of behavioral, technical, and personality questions. The interview began with them reading through my resume and then they began to ask the questions that were prepared prior to my arrival. The questions were pretty straight forward (how would you handle this situation type questions) and it seemed as if they were looking more for leadership and technical skills.

    I received my offer from Con Ed a little over a week after I interviewed- so the process took a little over 2 weeks from the date that I applied.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical questions were specific to the position - there were no curve balls there, you should be able to answer questions related to the job. Be prepared to provide stories about your leadership.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, they presented the offer with the salary and benefits and I accepted.
