SRP – Why Work For Us?


SRP is the oldest multipurpose federal reclamation project in the United States. We have been serving central Arizona since 1903, nearly 10 years before Arizona became the 48th state.

Today the SRP power district is one of the nation's largest public power utilities. We provide electricity to more than 970,000 retail customers in a 2,900-square-mile service area that spans three Arizona counties, including most of the metropolitan Phoenix area (known as the Valley). We are an integrated utility, providing generation, transmission and distribution services, as well as metering and billing services.

SRP's water business is one of the largest raw-water suppliers in Arizona. We deliver about 1 million acre-feet of water annually to a 375-square-mile service area and manage a 13,000-square-mile watershed that includes an extensive system of reservoirs, wells, canals and irrigation laterals.

    SRP has this great program that helps entry level engineering graduates to develop technical skills. Offer great classes to further education and to become a great leader. The program is for two years. You will rotate through 4 different department (Which gives you a greater understand of how the SRP works as a whole) and don’t worry, they make sure you’ll have a permanent place to work at the end of the rotation.
    Not only SRP helps you grow in the company, but also support work/life balance as well. SRP prioritize family. SRP itself is a big family.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SRP (Tempe, AZ) in February 2018.

    Interview

    1)Personality and Cognitive test
    You do some online tests to see if you have the ability to think quickly and accurately and are good at using IT and navigating around systems under pressure.

    2) Phone interview.
    You need to call in and wait for your call to be answered by a preliminary interviewer. Everyone calls in at the assigned time and it's a first come, first service system. You will find out on the call whether you will move on to an in-person interview or not.

    3) In-person interview.
    You will be assigned a time slot along with around 20 other applicants and that will run all day possibly for 2 days. Keep in mind that it's around 2000 applicants per hiring round and maybe 200 make it to the in-person interviews. This round is made up of an informational meeting and then a "speed dating" round. There are like 12 desks set up with one to two interviewers and you rotate through the tables with some off time since there are more interviewees than there are tables. you get 1 minute to have your question asked and for you to answer the question. Be precise and concise. Research the company. Research where you could go be in the future since the company hires a lot from within.
    4) Drug screening.
    Those that are short-listed after the speed dating will go to a drug test and about a week later, you'll know if you got the job or not.
