AEP - DC Cook was a great place to start my career. I learned a tremendous amount while working there and was able to travel around the country evaluating suppliers.

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.
