Pros
  • I felt that the company treated the employees well--great pay and benefits (in 7 reviews)

  • The benefits are good, but work-life balance gets a little out of whack in certain jobs because of the emergency response (in 7 reviews)

Cons
  • The disconnection between the front line employees and upper management (in 7 reviews)

  • Some of the down sides to working for AEP would be long hours and lots of over time on weekends, holidays, and midnights (in 5 reviews)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. 12 hour shifts 6am- 6pm or 6pm- 6am, so you work 4 days on and 3 days off, then 3 days on and 4 days off. Chance for bonuses based on team performance. Most of the people are great to work with. Great training.

    Cons

    The job is pretty boring unless there is training or an outage going on. During outages there may be forced overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people, not just bodies to sit a post.
