    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.
