    I worked at AEP (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I truly and honestly have nothing positive to say about this company, especially not the Lawton, OK location.

    Cons

    Dangerous area, unsafe practices such as not working between grounds, and pitiful management. This isn't even a good place to get your foot in the door. They cycle through apprentices like crazy. They lost, at the very least, five in the last two years. In my opinion, this is no place for a family. Gang activity, drive-bys, home invasions, and murder. The areas that used to be safe are starting to decline according to residents in Elgin. Just search the news. Stay far away.

    Pros

    Aep has a friendly environment. Everyone helps eachother out and tries to teach ones who don't know in a respectful manor.

    Cons

    Not really any cons that I know of.

    Pros

    The pay is good and above average for the area. great and plentiful benefits, you can work there until retirement.

    Cons

    64 pages of company acronyms. The job is complex and they give you 100% on day one. It's tough to keep a positive attitude when you learn something new everyday for 4 months
