IT Support Technician (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 15, 2017
The pay is decent, i had no benefits because I was a contractor, everyone keeps saying there are advancement opportunities but there doesn't seem to be any clear cut way to do so. Many people working the same role for 4+ years, seems to be more about who you know and if you are liked than actual merit.
A place with great employers and a close knit work force.
Electrical Apprentice (Current Employee) – Avon, IN – November 14, 2017
The employers and higher up employees of this company are extremely helpful and fair to their employees as long as you work. Very relaxed feel between workers and employers. Will provide 40 hours if you are willing to work it but also voluntary days off if you choose to participate when work slows down. Also provides voluntary Saturday's as overtime when it gets busy. Offers great benefits and takes care of employees. This is an employer that as long as you have a good work ethic will go out of their way to help you when you need it. Couldn't ask for a better place to work!
Consistent schedule, Flexible, Helpful, Relaxing
Higher risk of injury due to construction site working
Working in the department that I did, I saw just how boring an office job can be. The work was incredibly monotonous, however it was necessary in order to save the company money, and keep people safe. However, the management within seemed to care more about those employees who would endear themselves to management, and less about those that did not have the time to do so, as they were too busy doing their job.
Transmission Right of Way Agent (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – October 17, 2017
Great company to work for, however, the management needs to be revamped. Most management positions do not funnel the proper information down the ranks and employees are left to make decisions without guidance. This causes an unnecessary amount of stress.
Great Company to work for. Great job advancement. Great People.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – October 11, 2017
My day started between 7am and 8am. My years at AEP were divided between Customer Service in the office and outdoors reading electric meters. We had daily safety huddles. It was always important to stay aware of your surroundings. I accepted customers' payments for their monthly bills, I performed adjustments to accounts that were read wrong in error. I transported monies to financial institutions. As a meter reader, I walked daily from house to house reading meters. Some meters were located in desolate areas and others in narrow traveling lanes. I walked in rain, snow, sleet, hail and many other weather conditions in order to do my job. I enjoyed the people i worked with and I enjoyed meeting customers out and about on my daily routes.
Line Mechanic (Former Employee) – Steubenville, OH – October 10, 2017
I was only at this job for 6 months, it was temporary. for the most part I did grunt work, digging holes and setting poles. lots of overtime. everytime it storms, count on going to work and wear your rain suit.
The culture here is something to be proud of. The company itself cares about the personal life of the employees. It promotes healthy relationships in personal life and work life. AEP is the perfect company to build a career with.
Rewarding and great pay. After 32 years ready for part time

Managing Director - Finance/Unregulated Businesses (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – September 20, 2017
I was hired to lead the financial activities of the unregulated side AEP and the position lasted six months before AEP bowed out of the unregulated utility businesses and my reason for working at AEP disappeared. AEP quit the unregulated utility businesses as a direct result of the bankruptcy of Enron
Station Electrician Intern (Current Employee) – Westerville, OH – September 17, 2017
AEP is a great company to work for, they compensate you well, and also make sure everyone leaves the same as they came in. The most enjoyable part is that you get to do something different almost everyday.
IT Software Developer Associate (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – September 13, 2017
AEP is a comfy stable job that anyone could retire from. However (in my experience), they aren't looking for innovators. AEP is a good place if you want a 9-5 job (nothing wrong with that). For those who have the passion and desire to innovate, it feels as if you are restricted.
