Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in October 2017.

Interview

So far just the phone interview. Still waiting to hear back. It was very long. An hour and a half. I wish they would have warned me about that.

Nice guy though. Behavioral and technical questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview. Many questions that you would expect while interviewing for any company. Many situation based questions which you had to answer on the spot. I was interviewed by two people simultaneously, they were nice and relatable. Very conversation based.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Being a current intern, they skipped the initial interview and went straight to the behavioral interview. Upon arriving to the interview you have to write two essays and then walk into the interview room. You will be getting interviewed by two managers from two different departments. They press you and try to see how you act under pressure. It is a very intense interview, and they will ask alot of follow up questions. Think carefully about your responses or they will rip you to shreds.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you do if you're walking into work and you see your supervisor drinking?   Answer Question
    • Lets say you've been working on Con Edison for only 2 weeks and you're supervisor quits, and his boss promotes you to his position, how do you respond? What will you say in your first meeting with the employees now working for you? How do you respond if an employee confronts you and says he doesn't believe you're qualified seeing that you've only been there for 2 weeks?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The first step is a phone interview with HR, and it lasts about an hour. The questions are very basic - what do you know about the company, what interests you in the program, what type of leadership roles and internships have you had in the past. The next round is held in their headquarters in the city. You meet with recruiter who gives you two short essays to write asking about leadership experiences and qualities. Then you go through an interview with two senior Con Edison employees who went through the program. The questions are more detailed about leadership experience, general industry and company knowledge, and a few situational questions about situations you might face on the job. I heard back with a final decision about a month later.

    Interview Questions

    • Please describe a time when you assumed a leadership role on a team project.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call for an interview about 2 months later. Went in for a first round interview and met with one past Gold Associate. All behavioral questions this round. About a week after the first round I was called back for a second round interview that would take place the next week. The second round was a bit more technical and they really expected you to show knowledge on utilities and show a lot of personal initiative examples. They ensured me I would have a response in roughly 30 days. I did not hear from them after 5 weeks and it took a lot of pestering HR to finally have an answer. I understand that there a lot of candidates, but its extremely unprofessional to continue to ignore a job candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me what you know about utilities and how electricity is generated.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York in November 2014.

    Interview

    First I had an on campus interview with one of the graduates of the gold program from my school. The interview was very basic and not very difficult. A week later I was told I had an interview in Manhattan at their corporate headquarters. I arrived and was escorted upstairs where I was interviewed by two people who asked me questions about my engineering background and wanted to know about my past experiences. They also asked various situational based questions. Two weeks after the interview I received a email for the personality exam and one month after taking the exam I was told I had been selected.

    Interview Questions

    • None, pretty straight forward.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, most entry level jobs don't let you negotiate, take it or leave it.

    General behavioural questions, which was the first interview, just be calm and confidence.
    The interviewers are graduates of the program, Its quite interactive and friendly. I am still waiting on the second interview which I was told its will be technical questions based on what I have in my resuming.
