    I worked at Colorado Springs Utilities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, professional development opportunities, good training dept.

    Cons

    Management style was atrocious...it was amazing to see how managers were allowed to operate as bullies, creating hostile work environments and demeaning employees. Creative thinkers were ostracized and pushed out. If you're not a robot don't expect to last long.

    Interview

    Before an interview, I was contacted with 3 different rounds of online assessment tests. One would think, okay, a quick test to make sure you're a viable candidate, no problem. But 3 very extensive tests are WAY TOO MUCH to require when you don't even know if you would want the job, as you only have a brief job description and no human contact to address questions or details. The online tests wasted about 2 hours of my time. The practice is absolutely ridiculous and turns me against ever wanting to work there . . . and should make you think about applying as well!

    Interview Questions

    • Online testing consisted of personality profile, situational testing, and a more job specific test regarding project management. Some were timed, some not.   Answer Question
