    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.
