    Pros

    Being part of the union, and having a collective bargaining agreement definitely works in your favor. Because most things are based on seniority, It leaves little chance for favoritism.

    Cons

    Since everything is based on seniority, if you are in your first 1-3 yrs on the job you can forget about having any days surrounding a holiday off! Time off is monopolized by the top 10 employees with the most seniority and its annoying!

    Advice to Management

    Each call is expected to wrap in 75 seconds after the call. Your best employees take longer than that to ensure that accounts are noted properly, documents that were promised are actually sent and any follow up necessary is complete. Your focus is in the wrong area. Those who do average just 1 minute in after all are not doing their job fully.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NSTAR (Westwood, MA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews face to face with NSTAR and the way I was handled from HR, to sales, to engineering and management was exceptional. They described the job I interviewed for, in complete detail in regards to the technical, administrative and other functional tasks/duties and they demonstrated down to the personal level about how much they care about the people they hire not just as employees but as individuals with needs and wants. The personnel I interviewed with want people to join NSTAR as members of an extended family for the long term in order to be comfortable to operate at their best. Last but not least, they offer good benefits and a pension plan, which is rear in the corporate world these days. They also offered advancement opportunities and a clear vision about the future of the company and how one could be inclusive to their vision for career growth.

    Interview Questions

    • How I can handle the type and amount of workload that was presented and explained in high degree of detail by the hiring manager who was thorough enough to go into the functional and timing aspects of it piece by piece.   1 Answer
