Not an energy company. Misleading ads
none (Former Employee) –  noneSeptember 12, 2016
Most of their ads make it sound like they are an energy company that is hiring but they are a "recruiting" company. They call every day, ask the same stuff over and over and never really have a job for you.
They should be made to plainly state in all ads that they are recruiters. For no one.

No communication
Safety tech (Former Employee) –  Runge, TXFebruary 7, 2016
I would not recommend them to any other Safety Person these people work you till you get laid off then they don't know you any more they lie and give you the run around. Recruiters sitting on jobs and not working a person the recruiter will call other people you was working with and will offer them a job knowing they are already working.
Pros
None to talk about
Cons
Bad communicators

Old School Recruitment
Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 1, 2016
Management has an incredibly old-school approach to recruitment.
People are micro-managed, encouraged to manipulate clients, and are belittled for having low call times.

The company has not found it's way into the 21st century yet.
They are the only downtown employer I know of that does not pay for parking. People are reprimanded for leaving a minute before 12:00 for lunch or for coming in a minute after 1:00 from lunch. They refuse to update outdated computer systems which affect productivity (ex: they haven't updated from Word 2002).

The pay is 30k for new recruiters, and even though they insist that commission will allow you to double your take home, it's just not true. There are a very small handful of people in the office who make the majority of the money, and they have their market corned off. Everyone else makes peanuts because they are limited by the market they work.

It's just not worth your time.

I was very happy working for PGE and would recommend this group to anyone. Due to the slow down I am laid off but would gladly go back to work for them.

Passionate non unionists
Electrician (Former Employee) –  waAugust 31, 2015
They are advertising for non union members only I'm pretty sure thats illegal. How can they possibly get away with this?!!
It sounded like a decent job until I read that requirement.

Amateurs
CEO (Former Employee) –  North PoleMarch 12, 2015
A company staffed by a bunch of expedient teenagers who may have barely passed year 11 with one target in mind: to waste your time with irrelevant, non existent and meaningless job opportunities.

How they stay afloat is truly a miracle. If only HO back in the UK realised what a bunch of dickheads they have on their payroll. Give them a wide birth. They don't always have the jobs they claim they do.
