Instrumentation and Electrical Junior Technician (Current Employee) – Kapolei, HI – December 4, 2016
I have greatly enjoyed my time at AES. The business promotes a very community oriented view much more than other companies I've worked for. Benefits were good, management was reasonable, and they always take safety very seriously.
Company Events, Good Benefits, Good Safety Culture

Once you are hired to a company you may work for one day or six months. Never know for sure. Their is allways some other job you can try if the one your sent to is just one day or ?. Not knowing abut the company your going to work for until you get their.
AES had more pros than cons. The majority of the people there were great. Management was not the best so I feel it could have been an even more amazing company if it had the right people in the management roles.
Wednesday Salad Days, bonus at Christmas, several perks that made it a enjoyable work environment. You enjoyed coming to work.
Customer Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Rockford, TN – October 17, 2016
Lack of training for new associates. Very unprofessional atmosphere. A typical day at work was getting all of the work that the seasoned associates didn't want to do. What I learned was "off the cuff". Co-Workers were extremely unprofessional through attitudes, language, and teamwork.

Sift Supervisor, Hydroelectric Power Plant (Former Employee) – Songloulou – July 12, 2016
Ensure safe, efficient operation of a 71 employee-plant capable of producing 400 MWs to power grid. Start, shut down, and operate entire plant at normal conditions. Supervise/evaluate one control room operator, two plant operators, and one dam operator. I learned how to manage a team and maintained plant stability through black out situation as supervisor in charge. I had a wonderful chief who learned me how to lead a team. The hardest part of the work is to write a report when we perform on night time, during shift, after 8 days far from families. The most enjoyable moment is when we leave the work site to go back to family
Any thing could happen on anyday. Be tasked out to go to site and repare/modify something the company may have build, or something they only installed. Be tasked to build something from blue prints in Shop (in appropriate time frame until complete). Be tasked to take crews of workers and yourself to a site in another city/state and successfully complete out of shop projects independently.
Internal Communications Specialist (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 4, 2016
Enjoyable experience. Professional atmosphere with intelligent, driven core of employees. Due to setbacks in the company's home country, job security isn't guaranteed. But overall a good company to work for.
