American Electric Power Employee

"I have worked for American Electric Power for less than a year as a contractor. The experience and knowledge I have gained have been priceless. I would suggest it to others. As a contractor, you get holidays off without pay, but most managers will allow you to make up your hours. Everyone has been very helpful!"
