    Pros

    Great people to work with, excellent opportunties for people looking to break into the industry. Benefits are good and stocks are doing great.

    Cons

    Upper level management needs to pay more attention to the recommendations of the field workers. Sometimes feels like talking to a brick wall with concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to workers and have more concern with their safety. Everyone should practice what they preach. Benefits should be equal across union and management.

    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
