    I have been working at Con Edison part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you have no education and the persistence of a mule and don't mind taking crap from management who also have no education and the persistence of a mule.

    Cons

    Management isn't very intelligent, rampant nepotism, people who think they are superior humans because of the rampant nepotism, everything is timed (LITERALLY everything even bathroom breaks), smart educated folks most likely won't stay very long.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Con Edison.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took about 5 months in total. I applied online and was contacted by email that the company was interested in me. The first step is to take a multi-part test which consisted of numerical cumputations, basic IQ questions, as well as technical steam plant questions. After came the interview. The interview was conducted by two operating managers. The interview was long (about 2 hours) and was a "cookie cutter" interview where all the questions they asked you were already printed on the form. The first part was 20-30 yes or no questions geared to asking if you would be willing to do (blank). Then the next section was a lengthy interview based on your resume and past experiences to see if you can actually operate. Overall it wasn't very difficult.
