    The pay hands down, benefits and the people for the most part. Good retirement and health insurance is decent as well. It's good if you don't require a lot of medical attention. Bad if you do.

    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.
