    I have been working at Arizona Public Service Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of different positions in this company and the leadership expects you to move around within the company.

    Cons

    Poor communication, headcount is more important than being able to serve customers effectively. It's all about the shareholder's ROI. Benefits used to be the best in the state but now, they're terrible!

    Advice to Management

    Just because people have a degree doesn't make them good leaders. Most are managers only; no leadership skills at all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Arizona Public Service Company (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    1. Applied via APS career page
    2. Selected for aptitude testing - spatial, numerical and reading
    3. Passed aptitude test. Selected for panel interview. Interviewed by panel of 4 supervisors.

    A little bit of legwork was involved in driving to the test location and later on the interview location but otherwise a well organized process. Interview was a few behavioral type questions and a few situational. There was a role play at the end to act out a hypothetical situation. Interview closed with a chance for the interviewee to ask questions.

    All staff involved were very professional, courteous, and polite.
