I worked at AEP full-time (More than 3 years)
I loved working for this company. There was a lot of opportunity for movement within the company, they are really good about keeping you challenged, and the benefits are really good.
Sometimes it can be appallingly slow to get anything done due to the nature of being a utility company. There also seems to be a bit of a disconnect between senior management and lower level staff working in production.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AEP (Columbus, OH) in July 2017.
Initial interview on phone with manager for the position and employee who previously held job. Interview was ok and about what I expected. At end I asked if they had any questions. The manager then told me the position required IT experience in contracts and I had none. I mentioned that as an attorney with lots of technical experience, it would not take long for me to get up to speed. The manager was not an attorney and I don't think he wanted an attorney to have the position. If IT experience was so important, it should have been mentioned in the job posting, or by the job screening interview I had prior to my first interview. The manager was dismissive and unpleasant. I felt bamboozled and disappointed with AEP process.
