Great place but could use more
Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee), Oologah, OKJuly 16, 2015
Lack of advancement opportunities. Great benefits, but is not my ideal location and coal power is shutting down. Union work so there is good and bad in anything. You sometimes might have to deal with an I do not care attitude at all levels.

Stagnant Growth, Declining Benefits, Shareholder are Number 1
Principal Engineer /Manager Process Safety (Current Employee), Columbus, OHJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Great People
Cons: Diminishing Benefits
The work at AEP has always been challenging and rewarding. With all of the EPA regulations and deregulation in Ohio, AEP has focused on the regulated utility model as the number 1 priority. We have great folks working at AEP that have risen to the challenge year after year to keep the company competitive. We are rewarded by fewer employees and less opportunities for growth.

Good company to work for
Transmission Dispatcher Senior (Current Employee), New Albany, OHJune 17, 2015
Extremely busy days due to contruction projects and normal maintenance. Dispatching a transmission system of this size is a learning experience that never stops. Management can be difficult to work with at times but overall do a pretty good job. Co-workers are helpful for the most part and generally willing to help when the need arises. Hardest part of the job is making sure everything is performed perfectly/safely at all times. Most enjoyable part of the job is the job itself. Love dispatching.

Large corporation that provide many job opportunities throughout my 20 years.
Manager, System Help Desk (Former Employee), TulsaMay 18, 2015
Pros: Very good employee development programs
Cons: Numerous restrictions based on utility board (federal, state, and local) requirements.
The culture of AEP was very open and honest. The employees that worked hard and took pride in their work were rewarded. The daily work was based on the corporate business plan (both a 10-year and 5-year plan) so we all understood our role in making our company successful.

good
Production Welder (Former Employee), Winfield, WVMay 2, 2015
A good place to work depending on the location. The pay is great and so is the benefits. Only downside is they are a coal driven company. Coal is not a bad thing but the government thinks so.

2nd Mate (Former Employee), Paducah, KYApril 27, 2015
If you want to be gone for 28 days then home for 28 days this is the job for you. The pay is great and the benefits are the best most place do not offer anymore. The work is hard but you are still making money.

Maintenance Mechanic, Machinist (Current Employee), Rockport, IndianaFebruary 27, 2015
Enjoyed working here for many years. Co workers are like family. Just like everywhere else insurance is getting more expensive and they are cutting benefits. However for the area it is still a great place to work.

Not worth your time
Deck Hand - River Operations Division (Former Employee), Lakin, WVJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: pay is decent and benefits are good
Cons: back stabbing, clickish, promotion sucks. you will be in your position for a while
If you are going to work out on the river I suggest another company other than this. It does pay more and they do have decent benefits but the promotion sucks and they have a click and if you are not apart of it then watch your back. I have seen good people get fired for minor infractions. I would work for Archer Daniels, Marathon or someone else if I was wanting to work on the river.
