What do you like about working at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station?

"Room to advance in many areas of the company and employees have the freedom and are encouraged to help the company learn from mistakes and improve."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"You can run a very successful business no mater what your product or service is, but your employees are one of your most valuable assets so never stop investing and planing for their success. They will make your company successful !"

What don't you like about working at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station?

"The Knowledge transfer process was started a little late. They had to downsize quick so packages were offered to streamline the process that took a lot of tribal knowledge away. They could have done a better job in preparing for the downsize however, they did not start the knowledge transfer from long time employees until the last year prior to employees leaving."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Knowledge transfer is essential to a company who is forced to downsize. This must always be part of a business plan in the event of this taking place in a short period of time."

What don't you like about working at Charter Communications?

"I do not like how petty some of the managers are. I do not like that in order to be promoted you have to be in a certain range of intelligence so as not to upset the balance of incompetence at the manager lever. I do not like be passed over for promotion so that less qualified individuals can be promoted in order to build a certain dynamic also known as favoritism. I do not like being handed canned responses or feedback when asked why I was not promoted, I do not like being told I am doing fine but then the next week being told that I'm not doing fine."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Create a clear understanding of metrics for all employees. Get rid of the managers who are afraid that a competent person will call them out for not A) doing their job, and B) not knowing how to do their job. Get rid of lazy workers. I actually like that you have started using the supervisors to do the initial hiring interviews, that was a great move."

Technical Specialist at Wells Fargo
in Salt Lake City, UT

What do you like about working at Wells Fargo?

"The day-to-day tasks were very challenging, but at the same time very rewarding. I was fortunate to work with a very fun and supporting team."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I think it's important to have previous work experience or knowledge of the banking industry. It's not a requirement, but it definitely minimizes the learning curve when entering into a position."

What don't you like about working at Wells Fargo?

"I was disappointed that there were no opportunities to transition from being a contracted employee to becoming a Wells Fargo employee. My only other frustration was due to a finite work load and no opportunity for side projects. This was due to my position as a contractor."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I believe that companies are wise to hire contractors for short-term projects, but in the current economy I believe it's important to provide an opportunity to contractors who are interested in working for Wells Fargo as a full-time employee. It's very difficult to maintain the cost of living with no employee benefits and a starting salary for any longer than 90 days or at the longest, the duration of the contract."
