    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Grid (UK) (Warwick, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    1. on line test (About one hour) many questions about the basic knowledge and mathematical problems.
    2. Phone interview -(45 minutes) questions about the company's history and the background.
    3. Interview at the Fulfillment center (10 am to 4 pm).
    The interviewerers are very nice. I was asked to do the online test again and answered them many questions about the company's history and background. The reason why I chose this company to apply for. My present job's description and the reason for resignation. I had to do the grounp work as well, how to solve the problems with limited resources in a critical situation. The interviewers observed all the applicants in the whole process. The last part.is that I had to present individually about my points of view in solving that problem.

    Interview

    A group panel asked several questions about knowledge and experience in the field of engineering. They were very laid back and really wanted to get to know who I was as a person. They looked for confidence and intelligence more so than real world experience.

    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
