    I have been working at CPS Energy full-time


    Good compensation, benefits, job security, culture, safety, and family-like environment is what has drawn many to CPS Energy.


    Not having the assurance that directions, practices, objectives, projects, etc., are consistently done in the best interest of both the customers and the employees.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at CPS Energy.

    Interview Details

    Pay close attention to this. HR will NOT provide you with a benefits list. That is because their benefits suck (compared to other engineering companies). They give you 2 weeks of vacation for the first 7 years, and actually they won't even give you a day for the first 6 months (which you are actually on probation). I pay more for health insurance than my previous company, which I would've known had I been given this list. Make sure you demand information whenever you interview with these scammers.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview process is fairly easy, given that they really only target mediocre people.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was stupid enough to think that I would get to negotiate later on. Make sure you negotiate before you say yes!
