I have been working at Central Valley ElectricPros
Good Benefits, Nice people until you are honest with the management.
Nice barbecues/cook outs/ eat ins. Offer nice rewards to co-op members.
No drug tolerance
2 extra days off called holidays that you can use for any purposeCons
No Leave for 1year and 3months. Leave taken comes out of your pay if it is taken before your vacation time is accrued. Unfortunately it takes 1 year minimum for vacation to accrue. Up until then if you need time off it comes out of your own pay regardless of the circumstance.
Lots of Favoritism.
No one including upper management wants or likes to hear the truth.
Honest employees are punished
jobs are delegated to employees regardless of the job title held just to get the job done instead of hiring a knowledgeable employee to do the job they would rather delegate the job out to someone with no experience just so they can save the expense of hiring someone else. They think this saves money but it really creates unhappy employees. This is really taking advantage of the employee just to save some money and it is wrong!!Advice to ManagementAdvice
When dissatisfied with employees you should learn to communicate with them instead of getting pissed off and taking it out on the employee behind there back. Especially when the employee has confronted you with problems relating directly to work. Not all employees want to be taken advantage of, and not all employees are going to conform and allow the employer to take advantage of them. Try fixing the Problem not ignoring it then getting mad over it!!Doesn't Recommend
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Central Valley Electric in July 2008.Interview Details
During the interview the people were very nice it seemed like a very good company to work for. They seemed to like my energy and elaborating on the details of my experience. The person leaving this position was also involved with the interview. I was very honest with my expectations and my knowledge. I was hired but later realized the stuff the employer informed me of during the interview was a lie such as the GIS portion of the IT job being only 6months-1year temporary when in fact it was not temporary it was going to take 5-10 years to complete this temporary job that has no relation to computers. Had i know they were lying about the GIS portion of the job being temporary I would never have accepted the position. Thank God I was able to find another job during the hard economy, consequently I had to quit so it would not affect my career.Interview Questions

- Do you know anything about GIS View Answer
- Would you be willing to perform temporary GIS mapping duties which consists of mapping electrical poles on a geographical grid map here in the office. This would only be temporary so we can get caught up which will be about a 6 months to 1 year GIS temporary involvement so we can get caught up in order to help us remove the GIS portion from the IT job title.
