Know someone? Only way to move up.
Utility worker (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 22, 2016
For some jobs you have to earn them by time (line of progressions), this allows you to learn many things before intering the job. Other jobs you can apply out, so people with less time can become a forman (boss) of a crew. This makes no sense how can they run a crew when they have no experience of what the other team members actually do and how to do it themselves. With less experience CPS has been having more accidents, just because they want to promote someone they know. Sometimes they promote people based on race 1 white, 1 Mexican, and 1 black so no one can use a race card. Hello, how obvious is that? If they just promoted people based off their proforma cell instead of who they know, CPS work be doing so much better.
Then they are so short handed they are working the crew where they r getting overtime in this summer heat. Again, can i say more accidents.
Has good benefits, and pays decently.
Short handed, over worked, advancement only if you know someone in the company.
