IT Applications and Development Intern (Former Employee) – Laurel, MD – January 9, 2019
This is a great company to work for, they gave each employee a great opportunity for growth. The work was fairly challenging and taught me a lot. Also, working here has improved my ability to network, work with others and program.
WSSC provides vital services to Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. We distribute clean water to our customers and return clean water back to the environment all in a financially responsible manner. Although there are many different groups and divisions, we (I) feel like we are all related in the same cause.
Depends on your Supervisor. Some supportive and few are not.
My experience on the job was ever changing from customers to employees some good and some bad but the over all experience was good for me.
The most enjoyable part was working with employees and some of the most difficult parts was adapting to new management,
I learned a great deal about water and sewer distribution over the years and have enjoyed the working experience from time to time.
A typical day at work was dealing with weather working outside in 100 degrees during the summer and below 20 degrees in the winter rain and snow for me was something I had to prepare for.
If I had to rate WSSC as a company my rating would be on a scale 1 to 10 one being the lowest and 10 being the highest I give them a 10 because what WSSC have to offer to the employees is well worth it.
Senior Business Process Consultant (Current Employee) – Laurel, MD – July 24, 2018
Not enough focus on projects and overseeing of middle management to ensure effectiveness for the business. More focus required on ensuring projects are well managed by resources with on the job experience.
The people here are good to work with and are willing to help when needed. I learned to use a new type of inventory system and about EPA standards. Management does not micro manage the employees. The hardest part of the job was getting use to the way the lab was run.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Temple Hills, MD and Anacostia. Hyattsville MD – May 29, 2018
Excellent retirement package. Flexible work schedule. Personalable work environment. Had to meet deadlines. End of the month reporting. Management worked close by. Monitored account information for fire hydrants and meter rentals. Used Outlook to communicate correspondence, memos and relate information about waste water management and customer service. WSSC is a family friendly public works company that provide a variety of services to the PG and Montgomery County Community.
Most days start and progress with lots of small meetings, frequent interruptions and impromptu changes that can truly make being productive a bit stressful. However, once you learn your job duties and get into a groove, you are mostly left to get the job done. Management is segmented and you often have to clear the smallest details with 3-4 managers and even then sometimes no one wants to make a decision until hours to days go by. The hardest part of the job is that it has so much potential to be a great place to work, but currently it's just too stressful and needs a makeover from the top down.
Meter Reader (Former Employee) – Silver Spring, MD – March 15, 2018
A typical work day depends on the weather and how your route looks. I spend most of the day walking from house to house reading their water usages. thats the hardest part which is the weather. the enjoyable part is when you complete your route within 3 hrs and still get paid for 8 hrs.
Chemist (Former Employee) – Laurel, MD – January 26, 2018
This was another temp job for me. The experience to learn a lot about water and how it would be recycled was even better. The people were good to work with and allowed for an environment to learn and succeed .
