    I worked at Nyseg full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for a Utility had a great learning experience. Got to work in different power plant and learn many different things.

    Cons

    Shift work was not the greatest. The 8 hour shifts were not good on my body and home life. Time off was very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people. Most supervisors have had many years working in a power plant. They should share there knowledge with the younger people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nyseg (Kirkwood, NY).

    Interview

    Apply on the website. They do callback about 2 weeks later. You go the main buidling and do a typing test. They want about 20 WPM and accuracy. There's no excuse for failing. Practice online

    If you pass, you get a callback to schedule an interview. It's a panel. Dress nice. Smile after every response. Have 3 good stories. Focus on customer service and going beyond for cusotmers.

    They'd call back in about 2 weeks. If you get it, you do a drug test and a background check.
