Mission: FirstEnergy will provide competitively priced, high-quality products and value-added services in areas of:
• Energy sales and services
• Energy delivery
• Power ...
I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time (More than a year)
Challenging work environment, with excellent resources and a very encouraging team atmosphere. Employee pay is very good, and seems to be very competitive to the industry. Also benefits are great (despite what older employees might claim as they had even better benefits at one point).
Most of the positions are high stress positions, that require excellent attention to detail and an understanding of complex subject matter. Due to the nature of the work, many job responsibilities or tools are in constant flux. The electric system itself is very dynamic and it requires people in the power industry to be very excellent at dynamic problem solving.
Advice to Management
My advice would be that management should take more advice from employees performing essential job functions when considering upgrades to tools or systems.
Operator input on transmission projects in planning for instance, would go a long way to help address the disconnect that sometimes exist between design practicality and necessity.
Overall, this "open to suggestions" culture has been really excellent with regards to safety culture. It could be another strong benefit that will ultimately improve performance of the system and employee morale. My experience with management at FE has always been positive and that's really the only suggestion I have.
I applied through other source. I interviewed at FirstEnergy.
It was very relaxed and friendly. I went in there very nervous but felt calm and confident in the end. It was the best interview I have ever experienced.
