    I worked at PPL full-time (more than 10 years)


    Salary and vacation time are good


    Leadership has no prior experience, promotion based on popularity.qualifications are sadly over looked, especially at field manager lever.seems the worst employees have been given this role with little knowledge of actual work or skill in managing emoyees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves , let peco take over and run the company they way it needs to be run.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PPL.

    Interview Details

    First I went throughout a phone interview with HR to see if I was interested and qualified. Then there was a phone interview with the hiring manager and one other who asked me about my experience and reviewed my resume. Then I had a face to face interview with four attendees including two employees, the hiring manager, and the director.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions asked were expected and none of them really threw a curve ball. They were all basic and the employees gave ample time to listen and allow me to think of the answer I wanted to give.   Answer Question
