Pros: the training process and utilizing the skills that i learned in the field.
Cons: the position held was temporary.
The typical day while working with the American Electric Power Company was exciting for me. I was hired on as a temporary employee. The assignment that I was given was new and fulfilling during the time. The management staff were professional and patient with me. My co-workers were phenomenal and worked together as a team/unit. The most enjoyable part – more... of the position that I held as a temporary employee was that I was able to learn the trade. I was introduced to skills that I utilized quite well in the field as a AEP meter reader. I was also introduced to many residential as well as commercial and business clienteles. – less

Human Resource Representative (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – May 6, 2014
Company of accounts and engineers! Not a lot of andvancement, running so lean that it is difficult to gain valuable experience. When jobs do open, the company is only looking for senior level individuals that can "hit the ground running". The work has to get done so there is not a lot of room for entry level employees to learn and grow.
