AES Corporation – Why Work For Us?


Create an extraordinary future. 

Whether it’s bringing electricity to El Salvador for the first time, or engineering battery storage to make a clean energy future possible, AES people repower communities to raise quality of life in a fast-changing world.

Huge responsibility + intense commitment = higher reward.

Are you up for extraordinary?

Who we are

We’re a 21,000-person team committed to fueling quality of life around the world. The measure of our careers is the difference we make. To our communities, colleagues and families. We don’t just work at AES. We work for AES. We are AES. The only limit to our influence and impact is our own commitment. We care as much about how we act as what we do, at work and in life.

How we work

Energy isn’t 9 to 5, and it doesn’t stand still. A split-second event can unplug a city or upend a marketplace. So we are all in and full on. We work in small, hyper-connected teams from project to project – several at a time – bringing together people from different divisions, specialties and cultures, and embracing the differences to discover new ways forward. We don’t take short cuts and we seek to win on the right terms, not at all costs. We tap informal networks to get big things done every day, so we really know the people we work with.

What we reward

We recognize and reward contribution from anyone, anywhere. Pipe fitters recommended the way to improve all of our plants. Members of our IT team imagined our industry-leading Advancion® battery storage solution. With cross-disciplinary teams and direct access to leadership, everyone’s visible, expected to speak up and pitch in.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AES Corporation (Indianapolis, IN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    In total, the process took about two weeks from the time I applied until they made an offer. I submitted my resume via Indeed.com for a different role. However, they called me about the Systems Analyst role. The interview was with the Manager and Controller together.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were focused on my experience and how it fit with the role I was interviewing for. It was relaxed and very straight forward. No odd or behavioral based questions.   Answer Question
