Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Carson City, NV – January 14, 2019
Southwest Gas was an awesome internship and gave some background into the regulated gas utility industry. I personally found the work a little monotonous at times but it was to be expected as it was an internship position, not a paid full time engineering position
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – December 19, 2018
I used to love my job until i was forced out of my job with Southwest due to management. Some if not all of the managers discriminate against minorities, and its sad that it’s not a secret amongst several different departments. Do not be fooled by some of the benefits, yes they are nice, and the people you work with are great. However, management and HR are suspicious in their tactics and this company will forever leave a bad taste in my mouth. Good Luck especially if your a minority and you get hired there.

They pay very well for their job descriptions. You have to have very tough skin to deal with the work environment, especially if you are a minority. They have a lot of perc working for the company. You get to travel to different places while working there.

This is a great company with awesome employees however their Management/Supervisor positions have to be desired as to how upper management allows lower management to do things not all the same way there for things across the board are not all the same for all employees.
GIS SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 7, 2018
very productive with a wonderful atmosphere. the people are so friendly and always eager to help when needed. everyday i continue to learn about all the different departments that make this place so wonderful
HR has high turnover, “gotcha” mentality, not collaborative, disappointing experience
HR Generalist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 10, 2018
Beware of HR jobs... not a good place to work. Cameras in the company vehicles to monitor your driving. Pre-employment and random drug screens, different hours everyday, a lot of travel, no mentorship, and little appreciation. There exists a lot of politics, games, gossip, blaming others... it’s not a good environment. Not a place to develop or grow in HR for sure. But good for field workers, it’s good. They get regular raises and decent time off. Health Insurance is expensive but They have really good disability plans and pension.
Pension, regular pay increases, lots of OT for hourly employees, given uniforms, cell phones, laptops, company trucks.
Drama, lack of training, lack of responsibility in HR
Administrative (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 11, 2018
The company has a lot of turnover in their HR dept in Phoenix. Obviously there are issues with the management team when people don’t stay more than 3 years. They won’t address employee concerns but keep people around that are frauds.
Avoid applying to this company if you’re looking for a career in Human Resources!
Decent benefits; pension plan
Poor management; constant turnover; no room for advancement
Excellent company to work for. The company provided MANY great experiences for both myself and my family. Financially stable.
Customer Service Technician (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 3, 2017
Start early and leave late, unless prior arrangements were made. Fun and stressful at the same time. New management may need a little more training when it comes to handling employees. Hardest part of the job is dedicating your life to knowing that you will be working hard and a lot every day. The reward is definitely there however. Best part of the job was dealing with customers, both residential and commercial.
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – January 16, 2017
The work day was from 7am-5pm, normally. I learned mechanical s skills and time management. My co-workers were great and always willing to help. The hardest part of the job was remembering all rules and procedures. The most enjoyable part of the job was working independently and meeting and talking with people.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 17, 2016
