Con Edison

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Con Edison

Interview

Long and drawn out. Led to believe that I was the only candidate, but that was not the case. They use the behavioral interview process, and despite assurances that I was a lock and that the role was opened up for me, they went with another candidate.

I applied online. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Con Edison (Long Island City, NY) in Jul 2021

Interview

Way before the interview, you need to apply online and wait to be invited to come in and do a aptitude test. if its your first time trying-- you must also take a driving test before the aptitude test; its similar to the driving permit multiple choice test. The aptitude test is very tough, it is mainly logical questions but you need to be very fast with memorizing information and strategic with how you read questions. For example you need to find where X pipe is in relation to D water shed in terms of cardinal directions, but the compass in the question is not real life correct, and you must use the key to see which are those two things among several other objects scattered in the map. the test is timed so you must be fast or youll fail. there are several sections and if you fail one you cannot complete the rest. it took me about 4 hours. then there was another test i had to take, it was basically the same thing but this one only took me about an hour and a half. after passing all of this. you must take a physical exam consisting of various field like movements like erecting a ladder, pulling things out of a manhole, and unscrewing bolts. they are extremely strict on form to an insane level and about 80% of people fail this according to the proctors. If you just stay relaxed its extremely easy, i believe nerves is why most people fail. After that is the interview but I pulled out after the physical because of a back injury. I did however hear that it is quite easy mainly because of all the tests you had to take just to get there.

I interviewed at Con Edison

Interview

Timed 2hr interview in a conference room with the section manager and another senior engineer. There was a small freeform component but the majority was based on their interview checklist, a mix of engineering related and HR questions. Note this interview happens after passing a scheduled computer-based exam which is the same that other employees would take for promotion into the title.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Con Edison (New York, NY)

Interview

WAY TOO MANY QUESTIONS. The interviewers read questions off a paper and were not paying attention at all. One accounting supervisor was on his cell phone. They were like robots, and was immediately turned off by the staff.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Con Edison (New York, NY) in May 2021

Interview

Pretty straightforward. Apply on their website, get an email to schedule an technical interview. After the technical interview with 3 people, I did not know if there was another round. Got an email 2 weeks later to schedule a behavior interview with 5 people. (2 more new people for the behavioral.) It's been 2 weeks and nothing heard despite follow up emails given to them. But very nice people though!
