    I have been working at New York Power Authority full-time


    Following an unfortunate, extended period of irrational austerity and mediocre (horrendous, in some cases) leadership, NYPA has turned a corner and is working hard to create a cohesive, synergistic organization. It is no longer an "us against them" mentality between management and labor. This has been accomplished by replacing department heads and executive management with qualified, experienced leadership that are not merely yes-men or bean counters. Reason, balance, and consistency have been largely restored to the decision making process. Another huge benefit is that NYPA is not afraid to spend money on training. Failure to perform due to lack of training is not a viable excuse in this organization.


    Opportunities for transfer from craft to management are largely limited based on formal education. Qualified, experienced candidates without a degree may be overlooked in favor of a less experienced candidate with a degree. NYPA is a State agency, still subject to the whims of the governor. Although operational affairs have been trending positive during the past year, this has the potential to change based on nothing more than political fancy.

    Advice to Management

    This is both an exciting and challenging time to work in the utility industry. Many thanks for your efforts restore a productive relationship throughout the company.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New York Power Authority (White Plains, NY) in August 2015.


    I was first contacted by the HR by phone, she asked a few typical interview questions on why I applied and why I would be the best fit. Then she helped me to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. Phone interview took about 45 minutes, he asked a bit about my background and if I am ok with 25% traveling, then brought me in for another interview. In the face to face, he asked more standard questions, and explained the project in further details. Finally, I asked some work related questions and if he has any hesitation about my qualifications. Then I tried to reinforce I am very interested in the position before wrapping up.
