Customer relations specialist (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – April 23, 2018
It was a great place to work and room for advancement. Supervisors was very supportive as well. I liked how you got a raise every 6 months and that it was a great enviorment to work in and got along with everyone there. They look out for their employees.
A lot of people got laid off due to corporate decisions
Plant Support Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – March 18, 2018
I don't think this is the time to be working for SCE&G, with the ceased nuclear construction, it is a volatile time I would assume. SCE&G is not entirely to blame, and SCANA, it's parent company holds more of that.
Was a great place to work - culture, pace, challenge, etc. - but the project was abandoned - so job security became "0". Everyone was generally treated with respect and management did engage with employees.
Emergency Response Specialist I (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – November 30, 2017
I enjoyed my time with the company. Management was very supportive. There was a focus on working safely. There would have been opportunities for advancement, had the new nuclear project not been cancelled.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – October 4, 2017
Working in customer service is challenging but believe it or not customers aren't but so difficult in this industry considering electricity and/gas is a necessity. Working in both the contact center and the business offices, the expectations were ridiculous compared to EVERY other department. Employees are treated like children, not trusted and micro-managed. There's very little opportunity for advancement because it isn't WHAT you know but WHO you know regardless of education and experience.
Competative Salaries & Stabalized Schedules
Gossiping co-workers, incompetent leadership, unrealistic expectations & hostile work environment
SCEG provided a very balance work load that was challenging and stimulating.
Engineer IV (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – September 16, 2017
Review of Digital Instrumentation and controls for compliance with the certified design basis in terms of the scope of ITAAC. We reviewed requirement specifications, design descriptions, design specifications, and design outputs for AP1000 safety and non-safety control systems. The safety system was based on an ABB PLC configured in a divisional redundant configuration making it if more reliable than standard safety PLCs. The Non-safety systems (multiple) were mainly FPGA or Ovation based. Learned the AP1000 systems, 10CFRpart 52, and part 50, all relevant IEEE, NUREG, and Regulatory guides associated with DI&C.
Management at SCE&G was very respectful of the employees and they valued contributions as well as the personal lives.
The hardest part of the job was adapting from manufacturing to the "Nuclear Safety Culture" and the most difficult part is the recent announcement that the construction project is being abandoned.
The most enjoyable part: Working with a team constructing the AP1000 Nuclear power plant, the first new nuclear construction in 37 years.
Always learning new things and great colleagues/management
Health Physics Specialist (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – September 5, 2017
Mismanagement led to the layoff of my job on with the 2 new reactors being built. My manager was great to work for, it was the higher ups that lead to the disaster of 650 company employees being laid off.
Supervisor, Digital I&C and Electrical Systems (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – August 16, 2017
Excellent place to work. Very customer orientated,. The employees are allowed to work safely and no one should get hurt at SCE&G. They encourage their employees to provide service to the community in which we serve.
Operator (Current Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – August 10, 2017
They pride themselves on their SACRED values, but did not do their due diligence in this New Nuclear Project. They didnt bother to get with other utilities to see if they were interested. They have tarnished their reputation with the rate payers and with the SC Government.
Trainer (Current Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – August 9, 2017
Colleagues and overall work environment are excellent. Enjoy working with student and various levels of management. Immediate supervision is accessible and have a true open door policy. Decisions and empowerment to make decisions rests at too high of a level, resulting in slow and uniformed decision making process. My colleagues are some of the best in the industry and are very supportive.
This job was to support the existing legacy system while a new DB2 based system was being developed. The existing legacy system was a hodge-podge of cobol, BAL, and fortran programs that constantly failed. We spen the majority of our time fighting fires.
Paid fairly well
Difficult work environment, much overtime while on call and one had to work the full day's complement as well.
