Great place to work good benefits and pay is exceptional
Maint Tech III/Electrician Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 30, 2015
A typical day at work is arriving at the shop, loading the work truck with tools and equipment for the day. Going out into the field in the company truck to perform various different tasks. Hardest part of the job is working in the outdoors climate.

Engineer (Former Employee), Colmar, PAApril 24, 2015
Pros: quality of people at most levels
Cons: currently poor managment style and corporated ideas
For the last 5 years Corporate and Colmar plant has not been engaging their employees and lost its identity due to the current management style. It is not a company that I would recommend at this point in its evolution.

Fast Pace and Stimulating work enviorment
Billing/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), 16337 Park Row Houston, TX 77084May 8, 2014
Pros: management would celebrate monthly birthdays, and encoraged departmental pot lucks are so much fun, and a great stress relief.
Cons: turning off delinquent customers, having irriate customer in your face.
My typical work day consisted of replying to interoffice and external emails, processing reports managers and board meetings, process bill statements for water/sewer customers. Fielding phone calls from managers and customers, processing delinquent and nsf notices to customers as well as process turn offs for non payment of delinquent/nsf customers. In my 16 years I with my previous employer the opportunity for cross training in multiple departments, management was very supportive of employees learning different aspects of the company by being a team player and assisting other departments with daily or periodic support. Over time I have met and worked with a great number of people in office as well as outside of my office location, working with such a vast spectrum of different people gave me the ability to have a divers experience beyond my office setting. The hardest aspect of my job was having to disconnect customers utility service but understanding that it was park of my job responsibility. I really enjoyed the people I worked with and the customers I was able to help when possible.

Corrupt management and chaos at every turn.
Activities Director (Former Employee), Port Charlotte, FlJanuary 4, 2014
Pros: pretty grounds.
Cons: expletives, bullying, irresponsible accounting, management non existent.
I had a negative experience at Severn Trent Services. I reported
accounting activity that was suspicious, health code violations,
and bullying in the work place. Management could care less. It is an uneducated bunch that will do anything to make money. The worker bees are scared of losing their jobs, dislike the management
and overlook corruption to hold on to a salary. I wish I could think of pleasant aspects of this job, but there were none. I was yelled at, heard daily cursing from the staff, and given no job description. Don't even consider working for this company.

I enjoyed working here
Writer/Editor (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 17, 2013
Pros: travel, good co-workers, flex schedule
Cons: pay and benefits
My experience at Severn Trent was good. I had a great manager and worked with a team of good people. My manager allowed me to travel to trade shows and to different plants around the country, which was a great experience for me.

THEY OFFER 9/80 FLEX SCHEDULE (for some departments). Nothing like being off every other Friday.

The only reason I left was because the pay was terrible. I couldn't survive off of what I was being paid and I didn't see any room for advancement.

I did enjoy my job though.
