    Pros

    Great work / life balance. You will have time to time to spend time with family, and the company as a whole buys into this balance.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be hard for advancement. Need to have meeting with people way in advance if you are interested in a position in the group. Also, if someone is happy in a department you may be waiting awhile for a position to open up.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Georgia Power in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process took about three and a half months. I applied in mid October. Before the end of the month I was selected to test for the position, along with about twenty other external applicants. A practice test was supplied and it's very similar to the real test, so definitely study it. A week or so later I was able to see my test results, but then was still not guaranteed an interview. After about two weeks I was scheduled for an interview. I was supplied with example/potential questions; they were all asked. So prepare yourself for the interview with these questions. I interviewed with four people within the company. With preparation from the example questions I was able to give good answer responses.Then about two weeks later I was asked to provide transcripts to prove my education. Then a few days later I was called by a recruiter and offered the position. I accepted. Then I had to fill out a fair amount of forms and releases through third party vendors to release my medical history and background check. About the same time I was scheduled to take a drug screen at another third party place. Finally about two weeks after that, I was contacted again by the recruiter, who gave me a start date, two weeks in advance. Overall the process was a little drawn out, annoying, and actually had me discouraged that I was no longer under consideration at times. However, about the time I was sure I was no longer considered was usually about the time I heard back from them. Some contact is through the phone, the recruiter, but most is through email. Expect lots of third party vendors and long wait times. I've heard of some people getting hired much quicker, however it has been worth it. Everyone was very nice, you just have to be patient with how the process takes.
