Money is the only good thing about this job
Meter Electrician (Former Employee) – Seattle City Light – February 7, 2016
A person who wants to be part of a team, or that wants to work for a place that understands excellence, will find Seattle City Light a disappointing career dead-end.
The overal presumption is that if you are a craft person, you must not have a lot of ambition in the first place, or you'd have gone to college and done something that actually matters.
The city is putting a fair amount of money into apprenticeship, having found that craft people are becoming extremely hard to find. That's highly ironic, considering that the way they treat their craft people once they have them is so bad they don't stay.
The "Women in the Trades" open house has to be staffed by men, because it's almost impossible to find women with anything good to say about the craft environment in City Light. It's nearly impossible to find men too, but they use people who are very new and haven't found out what it's really like.
If you only want money, and absolutely don't care about anything else, you might possibly find City Light stomach-able.
Anyone else should definitely pass on this place.
Not organized enough to make people work hard.
Not organized enough to give much meaningful support.
