Work alone on the job but also with good team players
Generation System Operator (Current Employee) – Locust Grove, OK 74352 – March 3, 2018
My job as power system operator has considerable responsibility because I work 12-hour shifts alone at a desk and surrounded by computer monitors. The most difficult part of the job is the need for fast-paced decisions at times which may be scrutinized later. The most enjoyable part of the job is the quiet times during night shifts and weekends when everybody else is gone and I am working alone.
The shifts are two or three days each, with two days off between, and this allows for staggering days off from work regardless of weekends.
My supervisor is only a phone call away if I have a real problem or question and he is a great support and help when needed. Otherwise, he leaves the operators alone to do their jobs according to their best judgment. Upper management is outwardly positive, but somewhat slow to award regular pay raises unless employees quit and leave the company for better pay and better benefits elsewhere.
Regular time off during week days and week ends
