    I have been working at National Grid (UK) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good job security, friendly people to work with, and a nice atmosphere with opportunities to grow and develop professionally

    Cons

    The company's constant restructuring makes it difficult for the company to really thrive, as once things settle down, everything is turned upside down causing lack of continuity and passion among employees

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to be more strategic and have a better path aligned for its employees. Expenses should also be tracked better as the company's money goes a great deal toward things that are unneeded.

    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.
