A job where you show up at 8, leave at 5, and do the same things every day.

I worked at Gexa Energy

Pros

-The hours are pretty good, most people don't stay past 5, regardless of whether they have finished their work or not. The few people who do stay past 5 are trying to finish everyone else's work so that they won't be behind in the future.
-They try to have fun outings every now and then, in almost half a year of working here, we went laser tagging once, but that's about it.
- It's not that demanding- you just show up, punch your clock, do your processes, and leave.

Cons

- Not much to moving up; you pay your dues, and move up according to how long you've been here.
-Not much time to try out other departments, so if you get hired in one department, you're stuck there.
-Very similar work every day;
- Not much opportunity to grow as a person
- Not much money allocated for personal development; including extra schooling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make working at Gexa fun and exciting. I understand it's about maximizing revenue and minimizing costs, but spend some to make this facility somewhere you wouldn't ever want to leave. There's a reason why people joke about how high the attrition rate is.

    Pros

    Great place to gain knowlege of the energy industry and then move on. They offer flex time in some departments.

    Cons

    They very rarely hire contractors. Majority of their employees are contractors. Turn over is high. Your training is OTJ nothing is standarized nor documented, yet you are held accountable. Permanent employees are very young and eager to crawl the corporate letter and willing to do everything and anything to get to the top. Local human resources is very weak and unfamiliar on handle employee situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more personal and on the floor. They need to back their word and show that their are career paths.
