    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Con Edison of New York.

    Interview Details

    The process is very long. The first round interview includes a lot of basic questions about your background and past experiences. The second round, however, is completely behavioral-based questions. There are barely introductions - straight to the questions, rapid fire style. After the interview, you have to write two essay questions. Once you pass this part of the process, you will receive a link to complete two different online personality tests.

    Interview Questions
    • Con Edison is very big on "celebrating success", so think of ways you do this in your personal/academic life. There are a lot of behavioral based questions, and they keep asking you follow up questions. They want to see how you handle pressure.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Con Edison of New York in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on their site for an intern position in the Accounts Department. I got a call in about 3 weeks after applying online, and was scheduled for an interview. I thought I would be interviewed by someone from the HR, but was directly interviewed by the Head of the Accounts Department. The manager was really good, asked general questions, like why would I like to work for ConEd, what do I know about the company. Nothing difficult.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing difficult per say, but I would say they wanted to see you as a team player. So they did ask me example or two where I did show leadership qualities and also worked as a team player.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Con Edison of New York in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through a recruiting firm. I ended up meeting with a couple of managers that was not that technical but they did explain what they needed. I beleive their trust was in the recruiting firm that gave me the technical interview. SInce the trust was placed within the recruiting firm I believe it was more based on personal character. They were looking for a person that could communicate with them and get things done with little input from them.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions pertain how I would deal with working with others and management mostly and less about daily duties.   Answer Question
