    I have been working at New York Power Authority as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I received an interview call in late April for an interview .The interview was mostly around my prior work experience, current courses being pursued and basics . It lasted about 40 mins. I was told decision will be informed in two weeks time and just few days later I was called to ask if I am still interested in position. Its a great work culture. The colleagues are very sweet and friendly. Manager is very skilled and knowledgeable. A great organization. kudos!!

    Cons

    Nothing to complain, its a great place

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at New York Power Authority.

    Interview Details

    It was aggravating. They strung me along for 3 months before deciding not to offer me a job. I had 2 interviews, and there was minimal contact between interviews. They did not have the courtesy to drop an email or make a phone call to provide an update on whether I was still in play for the position. Very disappointing.

Question authority? Well, without question, authority for power lies in the Power Authority of the State of New York (commonly referred to as the New York Power Authority, or NYPA). The company generates and transmits more than 20% of New York's electricity, making it the largest state-owned public power provider in the US. It is also New York's only statewide electricity supplier. NYPA owns hydroelectric and fossil-fueled generating facilities (17 in total) that produce about 5,700 MW of electricity, and it operates more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines.
