    Associate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Grid (UK) (New York, NY) in March 2009.

    Interview

    The actual interview was what you would expect. There were some behavioral questions and a few broad technical questions. Interview went fine and was told I would be contacted with decision in two weeks. Didn't hear back for a month and when I contacted them to inquire if a decision had been made I was told they were almost there and HR would let me know. Never heard from NG again. Not even the courtesy of a rejection email. Overall I would describe my experience as: waste of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Grid (UK) (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Initially applied online but had an employee referral.
    I received an email notifying me that I was being considered for the position and that I should forward my availability for a phone interview.
    The phone interview was between me and three managers at National Grid. We did a conference call where they each alternated asking me questions. The questions were behavioral.
    After I did well enough on the phone, I was asked to come by a location for an in person, one on one interview and I was given a specific time to show up. Similar to the phone conversation, the questions were behavioral. Some of the questions were the same but, unlike the phone interview, there was a good deal of small talk.

    Interview

    National Grid seems like a great company to work for. I was offered an interview which I was a little nervous about at first because it's not exactly what i was looking for in a job but was pleased to find out about their great open-culture, great benefits, and performance bonus'. Before the interview I did my research about the company and was pleased to find out that this company seems like a great place to work.

    Terrible - it took a few months just to get me into the system. And they gave VERY limited options for taking the mandatory drug test (which was told to you at the very last second).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at National Grid (UK) (Brooklyn, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Long and not too much feedback during the entire process. Left you guessing on status. Was a little bit sterile and way too focused on specific scenario questions. Not enough discussion about the position, just questions about previous scenarios.

    Interview Questions

    • Too many specific scenario questions that without knowing their policies are tough to answer.   Answer Question
