    Pros

    The company is focused on safety of customers and employees. The company has been around for 75 years, and never had layoffs. Getting "SW Gas" on the resumé opens a lot of doors across the country.

    Cons

    Heavy retirement rate is taking a lot of experienced people, and their knowledge, out of the field. Work load is increasing, leading to constant run-in with deadlines. Health insurance is expensive for what you get.

    Advice to Management

    1. Review staffing levels. 2. Contract out non O&M work. 3. Find the employees that want to learn and get them working with experienced people, in order to keep that knowledge with the company. 4. Look at competitors' pay scale.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Southwest Gas.

    Interview

    After applying through an employee referral. I had a Phone call from HR to come take a computer (excel/word/typing speed) test, I then had a conference call with 2 managers where they asked what I knew about the company and about 10 easy questions about myself. I then had a face to face with 2 district managers, they had me do a presentation, and example memo to write. The interview in total took about 2.5 hours with tons of basic questions about the company and past experiences.
