    I worked at Progress Energy Carolinas full-time (More than 5 years)


    Strong company with great management, very proficient in its core functions and very customer oriented.


    Progress Energy went thru a transformation from a Southern company to a wallstreet style corporation focused more on shareholders and stock price then the service it was providing and the people responsible for providing those services. It started to eliminate basic things like family day picnics and small motivational rewards. It was a pleasure to go to work at Progress Energy and then it was just a job.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on the customer and the employees and let the market take care of the shareholders. It is the employees who satisfy customers and the customers who provide the revenue, those are the only things you need to control and need to focus, not on how to increase stock price by lowering customer and employee value.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Progress Energy Carolinas in November 2010.


    Phone interview with a general HR manager with some basic pre-screening questions. Was told that next the screen+resumes would be sent to more specific hiring managers, and I would hear back in 2 to 3 weeks. At about 2 and a half weeks I sent a simple follow up email to the person I talked to, but never received a response, nor did I get a call from a fellow employee.
