Hot Foot Recruiter (Current Employee) –  TexasJune 24, 2018
I enjoyed working here, just not paid well unless you sell. LOTS of OT available, clean break room and bathrooms. They play games to get you to sell more. Must meet 10% sales goal every month to get comission.

The company as a whole has many positives. The call center job can be challenging but you are trained extensively and paid extremely well. Every fall through winter there is mandatory overtime, but will work with you.
Pros
Great managers, training, benefits, overtime
Cons
Sales while maintaining a mandatory AHT

Great place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Shreveport, LAJune 20, 2018
This was one of the best jobs that I EVER had. The training staff and management were awesome. The only reason why I no longer work there is because in the 1st week of training we were told that the customer service operations were moving to Houston, TX.

Very stressful
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 9, 2018
Electric and Gas should be separate departments. More training to assist with ongoing changes is needed more often than just the foundational training at the beginning of the job.

Good starter job, would not recommend as a career.
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 2, 2018
Good opportunities to learn many different skills in a short period of time. A lot of young and senior talent, however this can be overshadowed by poor management choices.
Pros
Fairly secure job, shared knowledge among peers.
Cons
Managers are hired based on tenure rather than education or skills, and this promotes resistance to innovation and holds back new talent.

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 24, 2018
As with any utility company, you will sacrifice pay for stability and job security. Nonetheless, the work environment is very nice, albeit the opportunity for growth is minimal. Promotions are granted on tenture, rather than ability. If you stay long enough, you will be a manager, director, or vice president. Patience!
