    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First part was the skills test. You go and take the test with other applicants. If you fail any parts of the test you have to leave and can't finish the test. You get to try again in 6 months. After that they reached out to tell me I passed and scheduled my interview. The interview was with two supervisors who were both very pleasant and personable. It wasn't too intimidating and questions were almost all read off their papers. The first bunch were yes/no and then the rest were situational. Overall I was very pleased with my whole Con Edison experience.
