    I have been working at AEP full-time

    Pros

    Working with great people.
    Open door policy.
    Company is very transparent with employees.
    Always capabilities to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Politics of some of the groups get in the way of completing some jobs.
    Hard to impress boss from +1k miles away(Texas to West Virginia).
    Since supervisor was so far away, I had to perform the duties in my area for him (while getting paid less).
    Doesn't matter if your the best or the worst in your job, everyone gets paid the same, NO MATTER WHAT.

    Advice to Management

    Give a reward system, you'll be surprised who will rise to the occasion.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AEP (Longview, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online in July and received an email to take a CAST test in September a few weeks later I received another email to interview the beginning of October. The interviewer seem to need someone right away. After several weeks and emails to them, i have yet to receive an offer or decline email.
