I went for the drug test. No I didn't. They were all busy. I asked irsa and she said soon.
Guys,

I know it's hard to hear this but the ConEd hiring process usually takes at least 4 months to as much 8 months. It's a tough company to crack but once you're in the company it's one of the best places to work. The benefits are unmatched. I know people who took another job across the country just to hear from them 8 months later about the position(he actually came back to work for ConEd).

I recommend you continue looking for other jobs until you hear back- it won't hurt.

good luck.

I recently found out that one of my friends was in a class that they had last month. I havent heard anything, nobody else appears to be answering so others might have gotten a call and havent felt the need to respond.

Same here brandy I called irsa like 18 times on Monday and she didnt pick up. Sam, how long did your friend had to wait? I had to take another job in the meantime just in case they don't call. This is a very good company but is ridiculous how long it takes.

Let's hope that we don't have to wait 3.5 years. I heard that they had a hiring freeze from 2008-2010. What borough is he from?? Have you talk to irsa?????

I spoke to Irsa again yesterday she called me back asking if I had taken my physical because she never got the report back from medical. I told her it's been over a month! She said she would get bcd 2 me. She also said there was a class scheduled for the beginning of July for the Bronx but it had been cancelled and she won't find out until like three days before they are ready for the next one.

It's amazing that such a big company act like this to new employee. I am in the middle of a hiring process and by another big company (nestle) and the hr personnel it's more than happy to help you when you have a question. Starting salary is way more than for cfr, at the beginning of course. But , what can we do, Con Ed is where I want to be. (pension and 401k just can pass up this opportunity)

They are hiring by borough because you'll be placed according to where you live according to what Irsa said. The Bronx and Manhatten are done together. Well the one they had scheduled for the bronx was cancelled so maybe they will reschedule soon. She didnt say when she would call bck but now im hoping everything is ok and i actually have the job. She was pretty helpful saying she would make sure all my paper work was complete so ill be sure to be in the next class...back to square one.

I have also spoken to her. She said that they are mixing in other boroughs in the Bronx class. It sucks that they canceled it though.
