    Current Employee - Customer Service in Akron, OH

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

    Pros

    The pay is good
    The hours of operation is okay if you live in Akron

    Cons

    Everyone starts out as a contractor and it is known what you are. You start out as "red" and they make it will known that you are nothing. You have to fight for days off or even a few hours off if you have an appointment. When you ask for a few hours off they say well can't you reschedule it for earlier? That would be okay if you live in Akron but if you don't it's hard to s schedule appointments. The training was rushed and you are talked down to if you ask a question. If you miss a day you are getting a rude call from your agency saying if you miss again your contract could be terminated. That scares you into coming in sick and ruining your stats because you're too sick to function. The way they treat contractors is disgusting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating contractors so bad and maybe we would stay and you would not have to keep doing New hire classes

    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Akron, OH

    I worked at FirstEnergy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great pay. Atmosphere is relatively good. I worked in the new west akron campus building. Nice people to work with. Had a fitness area on-site. They hire a lot of interns so it is a good place to get in the door. They will definitively give you a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Not everyone gets equal opportunity towards training. Expected to learn on the job and master it on your own when you have never done a certain skill set before. Not everyone who is a team lead or manager has the time to do proper training because they are spread so thin with their time. Ability to be promoted requires you to sell your sole. If you aren't a kiss ass who likes to constantly work past a standard 40 hour shift, you get bypassed. promotions come from senior level management who don't know you. If you are a programmer or have a position that is tough to hire someone, then you get better treatment, but if you are in a position that has lots of options, then you are seen as expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    enact an appropriate advancement program so that people are not constantly passed over for new opportunities or advancement. Just because they aren't the best looking or most well versed in speaking, they are still a valid asset to the company and deserve to be rewarded for their hard work. And just because someone isn't selling their sole to the company doesn't mean they don't care or put in just as much valid work during their 40 hours. Invest in family time and maybe you will get more people who don't mind coming to work. It creates a better atmosphere when you feel appreciated.
