Yesterday, many GVEC employees from each department spent the morning at our Western Operations Center participating in a winter tabletop exercise. In these exercises, emergency scenarios are presented and departments go over their responses and plans-of-action according to GVEC's Emergency Operations Plan. Having these emergency tabletop exercises twice a year is one of the many ways GVEC is #DeliveringMore to our members and customers. A big thanks to Bobby Christmas Senior Executive Manager - Compliance and Zach Taylor Executive Director of Engineering for putting this together for us.

Why Work With Us?

Although we are a cooperative established over 80 years ago, we are far from stuck in the past. GVEC began in 1938 when a group of farmers came together to serve electricity to their local farms and neighbors—since then, we have never stopped moving forward.

Over the years, though, we have never lost sight of what it means to be a cooperative. Our member-owners’ best interests are always at the core of our decisions. This is reflected in the expertise, products and services we have grown into beyond electricity, as well as the community-focused work that has always been a part of who we are.

Providing electric, internet, solar and battery storage, AC/heating, and electrician services to members and communities across our 3,500 square miles, 13-county slice of South Central Texas keeps us dynamic, diversified and in-touch with the needs of those we serve. We believe this is the key to continuing success far into the future.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GVEC (Gonzales, TX) in Feb 2017

    Interview

    The interview was set up by someone in the office. We set up a time that was convenient for us all. I met with three people at a very, very large table. All the interviewers were professional, kind and courteous. The questions were reasonable and the interviewers took turns asking questions. I actually really enjoy it!
