My time with First Wind was exciting and exhilarating. I learned much of my job on the fly and (unfortunately) with little support from others in a small office.
Pros
Good Pay, Great Locations, Believe in the Company
Cons
Staff was not Friendly or Supportive to Someone Just Trying to Learn

Physically strenuous and repetitive work
HCP Technician II (Former Employee) –  Wailuku, HISeptember 29, 2014
Searching for fallen wildlife around wind towers for 4-5 hours each day. The searches on foot are most boring and hardest part of the job. Analyzing and gathering bat data was the most enjoyable. I was employed when there were serious changes being made with the management and it was well needed too. Fortunately, I think they finally got it right now.

Excellent company to work for!!!
Assistant Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Milford, UTFebruary 27, 2012
First Wind is a small but productive company. There are plenty of opportunities for growth for the right person. The reason I am most fond of this company, is the tight knit family atmosphere. The pay is not as competitive as some other companies, but the life to work balance makes up for it.

I would work for them again in a heartbeat, if the position and locations were right. If you have an opportunity to work for this company, I strongly suggest you do. It was the best working experience of my career.
Pros
good hours, company vehicle is supplied for field positions, friendly and fun-loving atmosphere
Cons
