Good pay and benefits

Great pay, bad work life balance, management not very engaged in taking care of workers. Great benefits. Nuclear is a different animal, better get used to playing by there rules

Increasing work load to meet company goals.

AEP is a great company to work for, competitive wages with opportunity for growth. The company is very family oriented and strives to ensure the safety of all employees.

Good place to work, stressful at times

During normal online operations, its standard job conditions, 40 hour work weeks with occasional overtime. During outages, the pace picks up and can be very stressful. Management gets a little testy when the unit is offline!

Great paying job with good benefits. Long stressfull hours during refueling outages.

Many meetings to attend to provide feedback and updates to the senior leadership team. Lot of time reading or writing reports and completing corrective actions. Worked with many different departments to coordinate material arrival to the plant as scheduled.

Lots of Overtime

Stressful enviroment. Non Rewarding

If you like stress, a work place that promotes from within the worst of its employees. Not being recognized for your dedication to your performance and support of the company. Than this is the place for you

Cut throat

It's hard to explain how terribly treated you are at this Nuclear Site. Management never will back you, and its NOT SAFE to SAY! Most fellow employees are a pleasure to work with. After that be prepared to watch your every move.




A lot

A good employer that took care of its employees

I worked for AEP at our Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant for ~23 years. During this time frame I advanced regularly until I retired in 2015 as a Principal Engineer. . Pay was competitive throughout my tenure and we received generous bonuses when the company did very well. . There was exceptional emphasis on worker industrial safety. Training in this area was extensive and included the OSHA Ten Hour Course in my case. We also had a vibrant Behavioral Based Safety program of peer coaching and anonymous statistical recording. . I received special permission to work from my hotel room on the Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL campus while my wife was being treated for cancer. . The work group had a family feeling that wasn't necessary true of all work groups. . A typical day started at 8 am with a group meeting at 8:30 am. . I learned a lot about laboratory testing and measurements. I had numerous incarnations of industrial safety, radiological safety, error reduction and general engineering training.


Our Material Center was less than 1.5 miles from my home.


Night shift work during refueling outages.

Good company. Production driven - poor in nuclear power. Mediocrity a norm. Very good people at plant. Good design. Accountability for workers is mixed.
