    I have been working at SSE full-time for more than 5 years


    It's a family away from home, everyone is close knit and go through the good and bad times together. Always supporting each other and being their brother's keeper. Amazing benefits, a joy to work for.


    Definitely need management training especially within the call centre where I started out, seems like nothing has changed. Very young managers each with their own rules which means the rules are not consistent throughout the company. This needs to change and I believe more training will benefit the long term goal and vision of the company that SSE strive for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits are great, training needs to improve a short term cost but a long term benefit. This should be invested in. There needs to be consistency within the company. I have worked here for 5 years and the same problems arise regarding management.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at SSE in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing was easy at this point, because I was interviewed by a fellow peer who was in a Senior position, with the same background and interests as myself. The phone interview with a Boeing rep was a bit more difficult, only because it was over the phone rather than in person.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    It went through an agency, and the rep for this agency was not knowledgeable in the position I was applying for. I could've gotten a higher salary if I knew the details rather than depending on her.
