Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) –  DC CookFebruary 2, 2018
Good people to work with and for. They care about getting the job done but want to do what is right for the project and the station. All views are heard and decisions are made based on the facts and what is best for the big picture.
Pros
Good work location

Cold winters

Good management.
Construction Administrator (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHJanuary 22, 2018
Good management. Temporary hires with contractors and interns. Job openings for permanent positions happen internally and infrequently. Needs to be more open to outside entities.

Good company
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Groveport, OHAugust 22, 2017
A typical day at AEP was signing in to my work space and then beginning my calls for the day. It was a call center, so aside from the breaks provided, the remaining time each day was spent on the phones answering customer's calls, questions, and complaints about billing or setting up/stopping service at a location. The hardest part of the job was not having much time to de-escalate after many calls with frustrated or irate customers, and not having any face-toface interaction with customers or colleagues. Though breaks were plentiful, they were staggered and most people stayed in their cubicle most of the day.
Pros
long breaks, benefits, company events
Cons
high-stress, not a lot of face-to-face interaction

Transmission Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHJune 23, 2017
Environment changed often due to many factors, which could due such causes as lack of employees all the way to weather. But the employees do what they can to make up for this and do whatever they can to help each other out.

Its alright
Telecommunication Technician (Former Employee) –  Pharr, TXDecember 19, 2016
Typical day of work is not planned out till you get there and things can change depending on priority by the manager or clients.
One thing for sure you will have many opportunities to learn as much as you want.
Management is indecisive on Company policies, though they state it every time there don't really keep up with them concerning employees.
At the beginning when you are new it can be extremely hard and difficult but once you put in some years they wont take advantage of you.
Dealing with management was the hardest part.
Accomplishing the work and helping a client or fellow co-worker.
Pros
Have your own company vehicle, company phone, and work schedule.
Cons
Local Management indecisive of proper company policies which gives you more unnessary work, which you dont get compensated for.

Senior Administrative Associate (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHOctober 10, 2016
Their is a lot of office politics involved working here. Best advice would be to not get involved with all that.

They are very flexible with work schedules. Parking is only $40 per month.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Hurricane, WVMay 31, 2016
a lot of sitting at a desk listening to customers yell at you for situations out of your hands. Not for those who are extremely active.
