    I worked at NSTAR Electric full-time (More than 8 years)


    Good people to work with. I miss my former colleagues.


    If you leave this industry, as many of us had to without our choosing... you'll learn quickly that there aren't many other utilities to choose from. Its a detriment to you that you'll have knowledge of a very specialized industry. Also to note. You will be assigned a storm assignment during severe storms. We were not paid for the additional hours worked. And they were long shifts.

    Advice to Management

    It's disappointing that so many people and departments were let go after NSTAR was acquired by Northeast Utilities. Cuts were made widely without considering the benefit of holding on to staff who have the knowledge of the industry and the company. I would like to see them bring back former NSTAR employees rather than hire in new people and training them

    Applied on-line. Got the interview schedule about 1 month after applied. Only 1 on-site interview about 40 minutes long, and got the result on the following week. I got all questions asking about my resume, no technical questions.
