SCE has around 14,000 employees in a wide range of positions and many locations. This is great for opportunities to advance or change locations. I have been a field worker (mechanic) for the last 13 years. There may come a time where I can no longer do this type of work and would need to find a less physically demanding position. Chances are, I could transfer into one when that time comes. Jobs tend to post internally to allow transfer or promotional opportunities. This is very comforting.
The company pays very well. Yet, they expect a return on their investment. In other words, some people hire on expecting a laid back job with easy money. That isn’t how it works. I work very hard and am paid very well. When I get my pay every two weeks, I feel I’ve earned it. Some complain the work is hard and the hours can be long. This is true, but it isn’t a surprise. It is made very clear during the interview that field workers can be expected to work long hours including scheduled days off and sometimes on a moments notice. But they compensate overtime hours very well.
Currently the company is experiencing a retirement bubble. This is leaving a lot of positions open which is a great opportunity for someone looking for a career. As I said earlier, this isn’t the place to go if one is looking for easy money. It is very hard work.
Advancement opportunities. Great pay.
