Meet the Veterans of Con Edison
See how these employees put their military skills and experience to work at Con Edison.
“Veterans bring a combination of safety consciousness, discipline, and education to the job, which meshes perfectly with the company's need for new talent. It's rewarding to help people coming off active duty. They're great employees. They're safety focused. They've done the right thing for the country.”
“Con Edison is a great place for veterans. The company supports, appreciates, and values the skills veterans have to offer from leadership and overcoming obstacles to being compliance and safety driven. Similar to the military, the employees of Con Edison have a lot of pride in what they do and there is a lot of comradery amongst employees.”
“My time at Con Edison has been such an experience full of excitement and fellowship. The fact that my job as a Marine was out of a motor pool and at Con Edison it’s also at a motor pool is great. The motor vehicle operation and leadership skills I learned in service are key to what I do daily at Con Edison.”
