    It was months long. The original phone call was brief. There was a second phone call, with interview question, just basic questions, and then an interview was set up. The interview was conducted by separate people all interested in their own agenda, Finally I was called and asked to do a presentation. I was then told the choice was between another applicant and myself. The other person ended up having more experience in the area.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. I got interviewed by a supervisor and the engineer I would be working with. The interview did not take too long, maybe an hour tops if you have questions prepared as well. It was a behavioral interview, not anything specifically technical. After the interview was over, the supervisor told me that I would get an email within the next week or two. I got an email of the offer the next day and then was scheduled for a drug test shortly after.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York.

    Interview

    This was an extremely long process that took place over three separate meetings: HR, one on one with the department, and then a situational interview with three people. Each meeting was over an hour each. I was offered job and then didn't actually start for four months due to having to complete a physical, drug tests and additional paperwork.

    Concise and Informative we discussed my goals and what's expected from the new computer aide. The schedule and how to learn as much as possible and present presentations in the morning meeting. Get to know how the company works. Learn as much as possible, flexible hours around school schedule. The interview was very extensive yet geared towards what I had put on my resume. Most of the questions were focused on my previous job experiences followed by some moral questions regarding companies property.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Con Edison of New York (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very pleasant people who booth read questions from a script - and stuck to the script. Took about an hour. Nothing tricky or difficult; just make sure you prepare well generally and know how to answer the ethics questions specifically. Second interview was about a half an hour with a manager I really could not see myself working for. (Pleasant enough just got a bad vibe about person's management style and needs. Not for me.) Did not hear a word for three months and was thankful I was already employed when they finally contacted me again to say they went with another candidate.
