CSR I (Current Employee), JACKSON, MS – May 19, 2015
Pros: 5 DAY WORK WEEKS
Cons: SHORT BREAKS MORE WORK, NOT ENOUGH PAY
I TRULY ENJOY MY CO-WORKERS. MY SUPERVIORS ARE SOME WHAT NICE BUT HAVE SOME THAT THIS JOB IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR THEM. SUPERVISORS DO NOT RESPECT EMPLOYEES. WE ARE ALL ADULTS AND WE DESERVE TO BE TREATED THAT WAY. IT IS A NICE PLACE TO BE EMPLOYED BUT THE VERBAL ABUSE THAT WE ENDURE FROM CUSTOMERS EACH AND EVERYDAY CAUSES ALOT OF MENTAL STRESS. THE PAY RATE IS NOT GOOD AT ALL BUT EVERYONE HAS TO WORK AND PROVIDE FOR THEIR FAMILIES AND PAY BILLS.
Transmission Line Design Engineer (Current Employee), Kenner, LA – April 23, 2015
Good people to work with. Compensation is in top bracket when compare with like utility company. Avenue to grow is limited but if you are the type that love doing the same thing for a long period of time, there is a job security.
Nuclear Chemistry Technician at River Bend Station (Current Employee), St Francisville, LA – February 21, 2015
Love my job, rotating shiftwork can be tough but rewarding. Good pay and decent benefits. Pension is gone now but I'm grandfathered in which makes it a little harder to leave. Very hard to get in, need a specific set of skills.
Sr. Engineer Associate (Former Employee), Jackson, MS – February 3, 2015
Throughout my career, I held several positions that enabled me to learn about all aspects of the electrical utility business. From construction, economic development, customer service, and engineering.
A Lineman (Current Employee), New Orleans, LA – November 11, 2014
Pros: good benefits
The company is a good company to work for. The pay is great. The hours are good and the benefits are great. The hardest part of the job is the shift work and being called out all hours of the night for emergency work during all hours of the night.
Smart View Pilot (Current Employee), New Orleans, LA – December 28, 2012
I like it here one of the best company that i've worked for to date. The only down side is that i'm a contact worker and my Future is not certain. We come in do some data entry speak to customer and have fun doing it. Management team second to none great teachers i've learned a lot working here.
I wore many hats which gave me an excellent opportunity to learn many skills and set a strong platform for my professional future.
Coordinator of the Corporate Volunteer Initiative (Current Employee), New Orleans, La – March 23, 2012
I was responsible for implementing straggles to recruit and retain employee volunteers and track and report the results. I was responsible for increasing the program's visibility and annually travelled across the country to make presentations to employees and retirees. I also planned and coordinated numerous group volunteer activities ranging from food drives to rebuilding homes and playgrounds to tree planting and coastal restoration. I also managed the volunteer data base and was responsible for keeping the Community Connectors Web site up-to-date. One of my biggest successes was the initiation of a Systemwide Earth Day promotion in which employees were encouraged to "Green their Ride" by utilizing alternate means of transportation during Earth week. Due to traveling, the hardest part of my job was organizing my schedule to ensure everything was where it needed to be. Our team of six did an amazing job working together, we all wore many hats. I truly liked the alternate Fridays program, which was an enjoyable part of the job.
