    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Grid USA (Brooklyn, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First contacted by a recruiter through email to schedule a phone screen. Once the phone screen passed, you had to complete an online assessment made up of verbal/logical/financial reasoning which was quite challenging. If successful, there is an in-person interview for an hour followed by a second in-person interview testing specific technical skills.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at National Grid USA (Brooklyn, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had brief phone then met with 2 managers who would have been my supervisors. Prompt meeting and very courteous with questions and ample time to respond. Got feeling I was overqualified though I was really interested in position and organization.

    Interview Questions

    • Not difficult and straight forward. However, questions were read from a list likely generated by HR with out really correlating to my resume or direct observation of me (ie was asked about diversity in workplace when looking at me was obvious I'm a minority in several aspects). No situational questions or inane strengths and weakness type questions.   Answer Question

    Manager of Financial Planning Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Grid USA (Waltham, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Two interviewers, hiring manager and a colleague. Very detailed approach and very formal. The hiring manager was very well prepared having all of my paperwork in front of her and it was clear that she had certain areas of my experience where she wanted to go deeper. Her colleague was just reading my resume during the interview and then he started to ask me a series of questions about the energy industry, which I handled with some success. He seemed more interested in my critical thinking skills as opposed to my knowledge of the energy industry.
