Senior Customer Solutions Center Associate (Former Employee) –  Hurricane, WVJuly 13, 2017
Aep is a stable company to work for. Management is very fair but stern. You are required to do your work and your shift is based on call stats. However i would recommend this company to anyone

Meter Reader (Current Employee) –  Canton, OHJuly 9, 2017
Nice place to work. Slow process when trying to advance. Some people are typical union workers and don't wish to "work" more than what "they" feel like they should. You get paid 8 hours to read meters bottom line.
Pros
Working outside. 40 hours a week
Cons
Slow advancement

Are you willing??
ICE Tech (Current Employee) –  WVJune 24, 2017
I can only speak from Generation experience. I worked for the roving maintenance group first. If you like travel and don't care about being away from family, you'll make money. I transferred into a permanent plant position. Front line supervision is pretty good on the whole, above that, it's the typical production grab mentality. You'll have to put up with the whole LEAN initiative (which hasn't worked), and the Sarban-Zoxley (sp) study that caused all the parts and tooling you need to disappear (God forbid a company has to pay tax on supply stock). The benefits have been decreasing steadily. If you want a place to gain experience in generation before they phase you out for the T&D profits, then AEP is for you.
Pros
Plants are a good place to work. Camaraderie. Union represented hourly workforce for the most part.
Cons
Steadily decreasing benefits, transition out of generation, inane policies about efficiency and saving money
