    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric part-time

    Pros

    Excellent co workers.
    Can earn up to $100.00 per quarter paid on an AMEX prepaid IF you meet your criteria.
     Union representation. Great salaries to be made if youre FULL TIME

    Cons

    Bidding system that will leave you feeling helpless and sometimes defeated. Everything goes by seniority and where you' re rankings are for any and all positions you would like to eventually evolve into. Its been over a year and I am still only part time.
    Health insurance for part time cost $299.00 which they take out once a month. That hurts on a pary time salary ! So every other paycheck, you are either paying union dues or health insurance.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was a great way to experience multiple IT roles at PG&E
    People there are great to work with always willing to give a hand

    Cons

    Budgeting can be a problem for the program
    Sometimes being placed in roles that would not pan out to any permanent job hurts the rotational person in the end.
