I have been working at FirstEnergy as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Work schedule 8am to 6pm, overtime is easily accessible, good on-site trainers, most co-workers were friendly/helpful

Cons

Employed as a contractor, 11.00/hr without benefits, time off, personal time, etc. First Energy only requires a 'warm body' to fill chairs. It makes little difference if you are college educated (I have a Bachelor's in Management) or how much professional work experience you possess. The hiring agency, as well as First Energy, will go on and on about how great it is to work here... $12.50/hr if you become a FE employee. From my experience, the turnover rate is astronomical, a complete disregard for quality employees, who provide quality customer service. Overall, management was terrible! If you needed assistance, it was difficult to find your assigned supervisor.
There is an ample amount of overtime offered. When overtime was required, they will call you at all hours, and if they are unable to reach you, hateful/irritated voicemails will be left. But, for all your hard work, they will reward you with an ice cream truck!
Here's an idea... Instead of childhood treats, pay a 'real world' wage, that would commiserate with education and experience. Thought this would be a great career path... such a disappointment!

Advice to ManagementAdvice
