A job to go to.
Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) –  6255 Shaatz, North Las Vegas, NVDecember 30, 2018
Arrive to work, review emails retrieve invoices from a shared file to begin the process of invoicing.

Learned the meaning of being a "Temp/Contractor".

Company as a whole, offers great benefits for actual employees. As a Contractor, there are No benefits or Holiday pay offered. Even days off covered for SWGas employees.
Pros
Good place for career minded (long term) individuals.
Cons
Long drive to and from, On fluke arival time delays due to accidents and traffic issues - went agiants attendance.

BEWARE.....Minorities are in danger.
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVDecember 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.
Pros
Great co-workers

They pay exceptionally well for their job duties
Emergency Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVNovember 9, 2018
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.

Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Henderson, NVOctober 29, 2018
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.

Fantastic Company

HR has high turnover, “gotcha” mentality, not collaborative, disappointing experience
HR Generalist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 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.
Pros
Pension, regular pay increases, lots of OT for hourly employees, given uniforms, cell phones, laptops, company trucks.
Cons
Drama, lack of training, lack of responsibility in HR

Lot’s of turnover
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 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!
Pros
Decent benefits; pension plan
Cons
Poor management; constant turnover; no room for advancement

The hardest part of the job
CUSTOMER SERVICE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Carson City, NVJune 7, 2018
Staying out of hierachy drama and games. It is a good place to work with a lot of room for advancement and relocation. The company is located in three states which is a plus.

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, NVNovember 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.

Good job with much responsibility
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 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.
