    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed 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

    Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    I sent in an application and was selected for an interview.
    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.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about the least favorable aspect of working at ConEd.   View Answer
