Instrument and Controls Technician (Former Employee) – Tonopah, AZ – January 23, 2018
APS used to be a great place to work. Now it is only a good place to work. The mentality of the executives has become similar to other large corporations. They are slowly scaling back benefits and pay to satisfy shareholders. They clearly have no loyalty towards employees anymore. They are no longer honest in their dealings with employees. The pay is still excellent compared to other industries.
Good benefits, many career choices and positions throughout Arizona

Senior Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station – October 12, 2017
Work at times work can be fast paced, especially when there are three units to keep operating and generating electricity, safely. All the hard work is compensated with good benefits. APS has a culture of keeping everyone properly trained for their particular job, a culture of safety in the field and in the engineering office and caring for the local communities. The hardest part of the job for me were those times when an unexpected problem came up and these don't occure from 9:00 to 5:00. Sometimes a crew of enginners and field workers were called in to fix the problem and return the unit to operation. Sometimes these would take longer than expected. Good teams accomplished all tasks and safely. I enjoyed celebrations when management would bring out catered lunch or displays set out on safety day.
It was a challenging work environment with opportunities for advancement
