    Pros

    Great people, management. Everybody is more than happy to help and explain. Very useful hands on learning experience, you really do the work and nobody is sending you to do coffee runs etc. The company takes interns on a tour of their facilities which is pretty cool to see. AND YOU GET FREE BOOTS.

    Cons

    PowerPoint presentation at the end of your internship which is dreadful. You are required to give a presentation in front of the whole company and the rest of the interns about what you did and learned etc. and the whole thing is being recorded.

    Advice to Management

    Dont expect that everyone is a genius with Excel.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at New York Power Authority (White Plains, NY).

    Interview

    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 ... More
