I worked at Avista Utilities full-time (More than a year)
The people who work here are great people. It's encouraged as an engineer to move around. You are well valued.
Slow moving...innovation is not at the forefront of the utility mind set. Projects can span years.
Advice to Management
Advice to management would be to continue empowering employees to be the best at what they do and to continue providing the top cover needed to accomplish that.
I applied online. I interviewed at Avista Utilities.
You'll talk to the security guard (not the receptionist) at the front desk and they'll give you a badge. Quick interview, they'll ask common questions as well as situational questions. It was pretty informal. I sat in a conference room in the Meter Reader department with two people conducting the interview.
