    I worked at Southwest Gas for more than a year

    Pros

    A really open & friendly environment. Never have to worry about getting laid off. It's a utility company. The people are nice and the pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    No big cons. It's a very comfortable environment. I suppose they could expand/create more job opportunities in some areas. The work load would be easier on everyone if there were more people working on certain projects in some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More job openings in departments that have large projects and short deadlines please. Small, effective teams are good, but not TOO small.

    Things have changed since I was last hired. I had a screening interview, took a typing test, and was called back for a second interview, and was hired. Now, all applications are done online, maybe a phone interview, and testing, and a group interview, and maybe an individual interview.
