    People are nice, but their processes create too many roadblocks! Instead of helping the customer, it hinders our work.

    I have been working at AREVA T&D full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, you don't have to dress up, the pay is fair, the location is great.

    Cons

    However, too much politics, lack of direction and very poor training. Thier processes are slow and hindering. They are asking for 90 days to pay invoices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers. Work with them so they can meet our needs as a team. Provide better and open training for new employees. Too many times, I didn't have access to the programs I needed. Waited weeks to get access!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AREVA T&D in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone Screen with HR, Called for onsite interview, six professionals interviewed including HR,
    Interview went very good, all questions were answered based on 15 years of experience in Power industry.

    2 days later informed by recruiter, " not an exact match for their requirements, will keep the resume in record"
    No courtsey to take for lunch, bad manners or protolcol

    After the interview,
    Felt like I have been used to resolve their thyristor stack related problems, since two of their engineers asked specific questions related to thyristor assembly and their specs. I recommended possible causes/solutions for their technical promblems based on my past experience in the industry.
