  • Working at the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) was in plain text "HELL".The employees working at this organization belittle, chastasize and slander each other behind each others back. Most system operators have attained their positions through electrical "field" experience and do not except graduates of a established technical school without first working in the field no matter how enriched their previous experience.The level of unprofessionalism was outstanding. HR turns a blind eye in regards to employee well being. While training within your attained position expect little assistance from your peers, no milestones in which to grade your ability, and little chance at feeling importance within your role at this company. I had high expectations when first being introduced into Aeso but unfortunatly I could not and would never recommend this company to anyone looking for a career as an electric system operator. Look into different companies such as Enmax,Atco, or Altalink In Alberta if this is the type of work you will chose.

Rater 3 above: Sounds like your experience there was everbody's fault except your own. Did you bring your best game daily? Were you self motivated? Did you expect to be spoon fed or were you proactive in the training process? Be careful blaming everyone else; not being honest with yourself is a significant life burden. It should be about what YOU did, not about what EVERYONE else did.
