    Graduate Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at National Grid (Waltham, MA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I met with a recruiter at my university's career fair, who then suggested I apply to the Graduate Development Program. I was notified that I was moving along the process, and the next step was a 30 minute phone interview. The interview was mainly behavioral, and went well overall - the recruiter was very kind.

    About a month later, I was informed that I would be moving on to the final phase, an in-person interview at their HQ in Waltham, MA. I made travel arrangements that they reimbursed, including a flight, hotel, and ubers for ground transportation.

    The in-person interview itself was unique; it was three hours in total. The first hour was with the hiring managers for the specific position I applied for. This interview was partially behavioral, asking about scenarios that align with Grid's values, but also technical. The technical questions were not difficult, and focused more on your thought process. The second hour was a group activity with candidates for four other positions (all different positions), where we were given a case study and had to give a 5-minute presentation after 45 minutes. It was definitely a new experience for me, it could have gone better, but went well overall. The final portion was a group problem solving exercise that was less formal and a little more enjoyable. During the group activities, all of the hiring managers were present and observing, as well as filling out some kind of scorecard.

    Overall, the process was very well-laid out from beginning to end. National Grid told me how long each step would take and when I could expect to hear back, and followed that schedule. The interviewers were all compassionate and made me feel welcome.
