    I have been working at Vectren full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic company in constant motion toward improvement. Many opportunities for advancement, as well as making meaningful impact within individual job descriptions.

    Cons

    Company works as a regulated business, which can constrain opportunities that might otherwise be available. Politics exist in virtually every business and it is no different in Power Supply & Energy Delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Manage at the level you inhabit rather than a level up. First, seek to understand - and that means hearing not only the words, but the rationale and intent of your direct reports.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vectren in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager and another Operations Supervisor. Basic behavioral based questions with answers given in STAR format. Invited for second interview in person. 2nd interview consisted of 3 person panel asking similar behavioral based questions. Process very professional but also relaxed. They did a great job of making me feel comfortable.
