I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in November 2014.

Interview

I applied for the position on their website and got a call for an interview in less than two weeks. I interned with Con edison over the summer so they pushed me forward to the second part of the interview. The interview was at their headquarters on irving place. I was escorted to a room where two very friendly women, who were graduates from the management associate program, took turns asking questions. They started off with technical questions and then went into behavioral questions. This took about an hour. After they were done i was given two essay questions to answer in 250-350 words. They said they will let me know in 30-40 days.

    Two interview process: both interviews have standard behavioral questions but the first also has questions on what you know about the company while the second tests your technical knowledge.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    In total the whole process took about six months. When I applied to the program I received an interview the next week. I was late applying, but after submitting my resume online I was asked to come in. The first interview process was with two graduates of the program with similar backgrounds. The first interview was big picture questions, and trying to get to know you. The second interview was more technical where the two managers asked specific questions related to your resume and your major. In addition to the interviews you are required to do a personality test online. After all of the interviews were complete, and the personality test was done I still had not heard back. I decided to give the HR Representative a call. She told me that they were waiting to see if they had received additional funding to let me into the program and told me she would call be back within the next few days. I received a call and was accepted into the program.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was setup through my University's career center. I was chosen from a large group of candidates, one 6 were chosen. Once of the worst interview experiences I have had. It appears they picked some random person to go show face for my school. The person read questions off a paper booklet, then wrote out each answer. So the continuity of the interview was horrible, having to repeat answers numerous times. Asked typical Questions. What are your weaknesses, Strengths. Best Project, Worst Project. What annoyed me is she left comments for the career center. Stated that I did not have enough knowledge of con Edison. When i spent a good time explaining how I could make a difference to the company and how they are in the business of selling and buying power. Asked them about the status of the position and didn't get a response for two months.Thanks but no thanks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York in February 2009.

    Interview

    I sat down in a room with two employees of the firm. One was a manager and one was a person who had just come out of the management program that I had applied for. I believed the interview was fairly easy. I went in there all confident and really didn't think much about the interview. They seemed to enjoy my stories and experiences, however I never received a call back.
