We are at the heart of one of the greatest challenges facing our society – delivering clean energy to support our world long into the future.

And we are proud that our work, and our people, underpin the prosperity and wellbeing of our customers, communities and investors.

 National Grid (LSE: NG; NYSE:NGG) is an electricity and gas company that  connects consumers to energy sources through its networks.

Cables in tunnelThe company is at the heart of one of the greatest challenges facing our society – to create new, sustainable energy solutions for the future and developing an energy system that underpins economic prosperity in the 21st century. National Grid holds a vital position at the centre of the energy system and it ‘joins everything up’.

In the northeast US, we connect more than seven million gas and electric customers to vital energy sources, essential for our modern lifestyles. In Great Britain, we run the gas and electricity systems that our society is built on, delivering gas and electricity across the country.

National Grid delivers electricity to approximately 3.4 million customers in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island. We own over 4,000 megawatts of contracted electricity generation, providing power to over one million LIPA customers. We are the largest distributor of natural gas in the northeast US, serving approximately 3.6 million customers in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

The electricity industry connects generation sources to homes and businesses via transmission and distribution networks. Electricity is sold to consumers by companies who have bought it from the generators and pay to use the networks across which it is transmitted.

The gas industry connects producers, processors, storage, transmission and distribution network operators, as well as suppliers to industrial, commercial and domestic users.

In return, we enhance the skills and capabilities of our people in a host of innovative ways. We help them excel in everything from health and safety to inclusion and diversity, from tackling climate change to delivering customer service.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at National Grid USA (Waltham, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    A set of pre-determined questions from HR about past experiences and office ethics. The interviewer also asked their own questions. For the most part it was a relaxed conversation. I was interviewed by two people, the hiring manager and an engineer who worked for him. I made sure to answer questions to both of them instead of just to the person who asked.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do in a situation where you knew someone was saying something incorrect in a meeting.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I made several requests for a signing bonus, relocation money, and compensation for turning down healthcare. They are all denied. The salary I was being offered was slightly higher than I expected so I still took the offer.
