Customer Service (Former Employee), Little Rock, AR – November 9, 2014
get to work, get my coffee and get to desk to get ready for a day. Love a challenge because it makes you think. I am a people person and like to get along with people. I am a show me person rather than putting directions on paper.
The hardest part of the job is making sure that I do things correctly to please my boss as well as my co-worker. This makes – more... me feel that we are in unison. The enjoyable part is having fun and no stress on the job. – less
Great Place to work, and great people to work with.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – August 6, 2014
Pros: great location, fun people
Here I learned more about the workings of electricity and how to stay safe. There were many safety and training tips that were learned for the workplace as well as at home. A typical days work was spent organizing meetings, doing reports and doing data entry for employees that had completed specific course training.
Management and co-workers were always – more... professional and easy to work with and we were a team. – less
Meter Reader (Former Employee), Amite, LA – June 20, 2014
Typical day at work involves person walking and driving. Learning is a daily activity in which each employer will discover is fun. Management sometimes is absent, but with the request of supervision, there is great communication. Co-workers are all assigned tasks and are not always visible to each co-worker. Hardest part of the job is being physical. – more... It requires walking, assertiveness, and running from dogs sometimes. The most enjoyable part of the job is ensuring all assigned tasks are complete. – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Beaumont, TX – June 19, 2014
Pros: great company all around
Cons: evacuating with the company instead of family, it had to downsize like most businesses today
Entergy is a great company to work for. The benefits are great. A spirit of team player is always encouraged. Managers work with you. Diversity and inclusion are promoted. Safety is enforced in a big way.The company does what it preaches. Pay is great. In some parts of the company overtime is necessary which I wasn't so big on. Also, if there's a threat – more... of hurricanes and storms local or out of state some people may have to be with the company instead of family during that time which is undesirable. Some of it is understandable. Comes with the business. As does downsizing. I enjoyed helping our customers. The company trains you well. – less
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Mesa, AZ – June 9, 2014
Pros: offered overtime.
Cons: clocking in system. only have one for the deptarment, and could not clock in 60 secs late at any time.
After clocking in we had 5 minutes to get to our desk and log into 8 different systems. The little time I spent on the phones was what we called "outage and emergency" which was when the customers were calling in to report their power being out due to storm or other incidents. The management team seemed unorganized and unsure how to run the department. – more... The hardest part about working for this company was learning the important laws in Arkansas, since they were different from the other states that were serviced. I really enjoyed the people I worked with. We all had fun when we took breaks from being on the phones and learning our jobs. – less
