Technician (Current Employee) – Everywhere – April 6, 2018
Been with the company for years, they lay off long time workers and hire new people. Pretty sad to be thrown away after so much hard work and time....i liked this company until I got thrown away like a piece of trash with no reason...
When theres work its good.
When theres no work...start looking some where else...they dont care about long time employees.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Tehachapi, CA – April 10, 2018
Cons: -Upper management will retaliate if you bring up reasonable safety concerns -Project planning and management is very poor often leading to unreasonable time frames and under staffing - Getting the equipment you need to succeed is like pulling teeth -They never have enough vehicles for techs -Never get back in touch with you or take days to reply - Only give calls when they have complaints - Dont provide neccesary safety equipment in a timely manner - They have no issue lying to you to get you hired , have had several instances of lies told to me - They will send you home with as little as 24 hours notice or less -SEVERE LACK OF COMMUNICATION & PLANNING
Laborer (Current Employee) – Tehachapi, CA – February 22, 2018
At WWS the Pay is decent for someone with no experience but for someone who would like advancement opportunities it’s hard to get classes to advance your career and the hours are very difficult on you, leave home at 4:30am and getting home around 5:00pm with no overtime or drive time. Management is decent but overall not a good company to invest in.
Decent workplace, weekly rewards(potlucks on Friday, off early, Ect).
Low chance for advancement, no drive time, and low communication between employees and supervisors.

learned a lot from this company wish I was sent to work more often instead of being put off by the boss in charge the company offers lots of benefits would be a really great company if they had there employees back rather then cutting them down to zero hours of work kind of sucks thought it was a great company in which I always had respect for

I worked a corporate job before coming to WWS, the family feel this company has is awesome. From the ownership to the techs WWS cares for its people! The office staff is always there to help the techs in the field. Safety is always top of mind for all employees and the 'here to serve' attitude is something all of the employees live by. Great team to be apart of!
Work Life Balance, Culture, Ownership that Cares for its Techs
Lead Wind Technician (Former Employee) – Tehachapi, CA – July 7, 2017
This is a great job for those that are okay with being away from thier family. Having to watch out for those with you can be difficult because of age and cultural differences. Also an informative job for learning multiple wind turbine types and models.

The one thing I can honestly say about this company is the office does a fantastic job listening to the guys in the field to get them whatever they need to complete the task at hand. I have worked for larger companies in the past and ended up coming back to WWS due to the positive vibe throughout the company. They definitely go above and beyond with safety, which is something you do not see everywhere in the industry. All in all, I would definitely recommend looking into World Wind and Solar if you are considering wanting to work for a company that genuinely cares about their employees.
Respectable Pay and Per Diem, Supportive Office, Good Employees
