    Pros

    Having worked for Dominion Enterprises for almost two years, the most exciting thing is to see that DE is a company that is committed to getting better. They honestly care about their employees and invest in their careers. They offer a great work life balance while allowing individuals to work on exciting projects. I have really enjoyed my time here and look forward to coming to work in the mornings.

    Cons

    I had heard, prior to taking a job at Dominion Enterprises, that they were a stodgy place to work. It was only by a recommendation from a friend that I decided to work here. I am glad I did because they are aware of this perception, which I have found not to be true, and are actively working to offer the best work environment/culture in Downtown Norfolk.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making the progress that I have seen over the last two years. Its encouraging and exciting to see that the company is committed to improving the lives of their employees.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dominion Enterprises (Norfolk, VA).

    Interview

    What a mess. I should have expected it considering I've worked here previously. I had a member of upper management and another friend trying to get me back to Dominion. My friend gave my resume to another member of upper management. I never heard anything and accepted another job about 2 months later. My friend was determined to get me over there again before I started the new job and asked around. The actual hiring manager claimed he never got my resume from upper management. They had me fill out an application. The manager scheduled me for an interview but didn't seem rushed even though I had already accepted another offer. The interview went well and the manager mentioned how upper management had good things to say about me. I told him I was looking for a salary match if possible. He said what I asked for was out of their budget for the position (no surprise with this company) but he'd see what he could do. A week went by and I heard nothing. I then randomly bumped into the manager and started small talk but didn't bring up the job. An hour or so later, he sent me an email saying they were unable to work anything out. I asked if there was anything he could offer but they didn't even try. It was clear they were not serious about paying people anything close to an average salary for this position. You'd think all that would be sorted out when one of the people referring you is senior managment. What a waste of time. The hiring manager was very unprofessional and cowardly. He never called me once during the process. Everything was done over email. It was especially bad considering he could have just talked to me in person when I ran into him! The senior manager later asked my friend what happened and was told I started my new job. The senior manager first thought I had just turned them down but my friend had to explain to him that I wasn't even given an offer. The senior manager stood in the elevator dumbfounded. Last time I checked, the job was still open even though it's been 10 months! The process was a reminder of why I will never work at Dominion again.
