GOLD Associate Interview

GOLD Associate
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Con Edison of New York in January 2013.

Interview Details – Behavioral interview over the phone that was about 30 minutes. Actual interview at the New York office. Most of the interview was technical, with a lot of emphasis on project planning. The in office interview consisted of two interviewers that alternated asking questions. One would ask the question the other take notes.

Interview Question – If you were asked to get the average number of customers in a bank over the course of the week how would you do it? You cannot talk to any of the customers, you only have 30 minutes at the bank to figure out the average.   View Answer

GOLD Associate Interview

GOLD Associate

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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

Very Easy Interview

Intern Interview

Intern
New York, NY

I applied 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 Question – 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 – I was an intern, so I didn't negotiate or anything, but they pay was pretty good, for someone as a Freshman.

Network Specialist Interview

Network Specialist
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and 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 Question – The questions pertain how I would deal with working with others and management mostly and less about daily duties.   Answer Question
