    Pros

    The pay is much higher than most other jobs in the area. Especially when it comes to starting pay. Benefits like health coverage are good especially if you are only claiming yourself. Most of the people there have been there for most of their careers. Employees and the company are very community focused.

    Cons

    Promotions are usually based on seniority more than qualifications for some positions. Because of the nature of some of the positions in the company, you may have to work long hours or during the middle of the night. Some of the equipment and trucks are older and should be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Give people recognition on a regular basis for what the do so they know that they are being noticed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wisconsin Public Service in May 2008.

    Interview

    You may have to take a skills test before you are asked to interview. The interview process was about 2 hours long. You are interviewed by a group of people in two 1 hour long sessions with second following immediately after the first. . There are 2 or 3 people in the room at each time.You are asked to give specific examples of when you demonstrated particular behaviors or skills. You may use work experience, activities, hobbies, volunteer work, or school projects as examples of your past behavior. Interviewers will be looking for three parts in your responses to the behavioral based questions. First, explain the specifics about the circumstance that you were involved in. Next, describe the actions you took in that circumstance. Finally, tell what results followed due to your actions?

    Interview Questions

    • This would be an example of a possible question asked.
