during edit ??

You can try
C#
DropDownList ddlEmployee = GridView1.Rows(<index_of_the_row>).FindControls("ddlEmployee") as DropDownList;

object selectedValue = ddlEmployee.SelectedValue;

While you click the edit button, kindly do another rebind...
try this.

C#
protected void gridView_RowEditing(object sender, GridViewEditEventArgs e)
        {
            int index = e.NewEditIndex;
            var ddl = gridView.Rows[index].FindControl("YourDropdownlistname") as DropDownList;
            string text = ddl.SelectedItem.Text;
            string value = ddl.SelectedItem.Value;
        }

Thanks for this solution :)
set autopostback as 'false' for dropdown.

C#
<asp:dropdownlist id="DropDownList1" runat="server" autopostback="false"  />
